Safety week and visiting the sea-side
During our 'Safety Week' we looked at internet safety and what we use the internet for.
The children sang a song to remind themselves how to stay safe on the internet.
The key message was TO TELL AN ADULT and ASK FOR HELP.
The children also looked at and discussed possible dangers around the home.
For seaside week the children made lovely seaside pictures, learnt about money and adding coins to buy ice-creams. They used all these ideas and created posters and ice-creams to sell in their ice-cream parlours.

Welcome to Reception
A very warm welcome to Reception.
Mrs Powell is the class teacher and the teaching assistants are Mrs Randall and Mrs Brandram-Jones.
We have a lovely large classroom with a cloakroom and toilets.
We have a reflection corner where you can sit quietly, read books, talk quietly to your friends or take some time out to think about things.
We have lots of construction toys, counting equipment and mark-making tools easily accessible at all times.
Indoors we have a messy area offering a range of sensory activities.
A large role-play area occupies the classroom and children are encouraged to select their own themes such as a cafe, hospital, police station, shop and post office to name a few.
We also have a large outdoor classroom where we have our own garden, sand area, play house as well as a wide range of large building equipment. All of this is fenced and gated for security.
All of our learning is done through play and follows the interests and needs of the children.
World Book Day
Reception have dressed up as a book character. They enjoyed looking through their books with each other. We made finger puppet characters from our chosen books. Lots of discussion as they drew their characters.
Reception learnt the primary colours in French - bleu rouge jaune. They enjoyed running around and finding the correct colour.
