Our trip to Smithils Open Farm
We had a great day at the farm. We got to learn all about the farm and the animals. We fed and held animals in the petting area and watched cows being milked. We also had a ride on a tractor and a donkey. It was so much fun 🐥🦉🐴🦆

World Book Day 2020
For World Book Day we came to school dressed as our favourite character from a book. We had so much fun showing off our costumes and telling our friends all about our favourite books. We had lots of visitors to class who shared their favourite stories with us and we completed lots of fun activities.
As part of our phonics lessons we have been learning the trigraph ‘air’. We wrote a sentence using some of our tricky words and our trigraph ‘air’.
Number bonds to 10
To help us learn our number bonds to 10 we have learnt a rhyme
5 and 5 add up to 10
6 and 4 make it again
7 and 3 they also do
Guess what! So do 8 and 2
9 and 1, 10 and 0
Learn them all, you’re a number bond hero
Different ways to make 10 using numicon.
This term in our PE lessons we are learning gymnastics. We are looking at different ways to move around the hall using T shape with our arms. We are also learning how to balance using 1,2 and 3 point balance.
What will break Humpty Dumpty
We completed an experiment to see what would break Humpty Dumpty. We had different materials - feathers, rice, cushion, cotton wool and stones. We predicted which materials would keep Humpty Dumpty safe if he fell onto them. We used language such as “soft and hard.” We thought that rice and stones are hard and would break Humpty Dumpty but found out that stones were the only thing to break Humpty Dumpty.
To celebrate pancake day we learnt how to make a pancake 🥞 and enjoyed tasting pancakes. We tried different toppings- jam, chocolate spread, lemon and plain. Once we had tried the different toppings we voted for our favourite, chocolate spread was the favourite topping. 🙂🥞
We made chocolate cakes using cereal and melted chocolate and decorated them with smarties. We talked about how we need to melt the chocolate so the rice crispies would stick to it. We then put them in the fridge so the chocolate would go hard again so we can eat them. Yummy!
WOW we had an amazing Autumn term in Reception and managed to win the attendance prize. Thank you to all the children in Reception Fisher.
