Spring Term 

Once Upon a Time 



This term we will be exploring different Fairy Tales and looking at what life was like in the past


We have been learning all about Cinderella.  In Pupil Voice Lyra decided that we should have a ball of our own! Leiba thought it would be a good idea if we made cakes and sandwiches to eat.




We learnt how to dance like Princes and Princesses.  We learnt how to bow and courtesy.....we looked very elegant and had so much fun! 








We found out all about The Three Little Pigs, the Big Bad Wolf needed our help. He left us a letter because he wanted to make friends with the Three Little Pigs, and say sorry for blowing their houses down. Louie and Kanyisi wanted to make the pigs houses. We had lots of fun!







We also went out and about looking at the houses in our area, we found lots of semi - detached houses and flats in Trowbridge. 






Another book we read was The Little Red Hen, we learnt how bread was made and Leiba thought it would be a good idea to make some fruit bread. We all thought it was delicious!








Autumn Term


Our context this term is 'Twinkle, Twinkle Celebrations!'  We will be reading and exploring lots of different books all about space and aliens and all the winter celebrations to come! We love Pupil Voice in Reception! We will be asking the children what they would like to learn and they will be able to choose some of the activities that they do! 






We have been very busy finding our way around the school.  They really enjoyed exploring their surroundings and sitting in Mr Naish's chair! 








We turned our role play into the story of 'Whatever Next!' We love going in it and acting out the story.  It is so cool - we have a colander, wellies and a box just like in the story!





Bears Rocket got all soggy in the rain.  We had to work together as a team to help make Bear a brand new rocket.  It wasn't an easy job. We had think about how many poles we needed and which shape would be best to make the rocket. 






We have been learning all about Autumn.  We have been finding leaves, conkers and pine cones - do you know they fall off the tress at this time of the year?!  Hedgehogs love the Autumn. In Pupil Voice Macaulay decided that he wanted to Make a hedgehog  - he thought sticks would be great for the spikes! 





In Reception we have been very busy exploring Pumpkins!  It was a very messy job! We didn't know there would be seeds inside! 






We went on an Autumn walk looking for Mr Squirrel - he left us lots of clues!  We found lots of leaves.  They were very crunchy because they had fallen off the trees. We also found lots of pine cones and some conkers along the way.
