Happy Easter!!

Today Reception had a very cheeky visitor …. THE EASTER BUNNY!

He zoomed past our classroom after lunch and hid some chocolate eggs in our playground. The children used their Easter baskets to hunt for one egg each to take home for the holidays.

Happy Easter everybody!

Reception’s trip to St Leonard’s Farm

On Friday 22nd March Reception class visited St Leonard’s farm. First we got on the coach. Next we met Farmer James and got to touch lots of different animals that live on the farm. Then we went for a walk to see if we could find some more animals. After that we went for lunch. Finally we had lots of fun playing in the play barn. We had an amazing day!

All the children were very well behaved and were a credit to the school. You can take a look at some pictures from the trip on the video below.

Mother’s Day 2018

This half term Reception created a Mother’s Day assembly to perform for their Mums to thank them for all the kind and generous things they do.

Unfortunately, it was a little late as the snow forced us to postpone. Luckily, we we able to rearrange and perform our assembly the following week.

Here it is if anyone missed it! Happy Mothers Day 🙂

 

Reception Spring Walk

Reception class went on a walk around school to see if they could spot any new signs of Spring. They looked closely at the plants, animals and the world around them to see what has changed since Winter. They used Ipads to take pictures of any new signs that Spring has sprung!

Reception chick update!

Reception class have had a very exciting week watching our chick eggs hatch and grow. On Wednesday afternoon 1 more egg hatched to see the children off for hometime.

When we arrived at school on Thursday morning 2 more eggs had hatched overnight, giving us 5 chicks in total. Thursday was a very busy day as 3 more eggs hatched before our very eyes. By Friday, we had 8 happy healthy chicks cheeping away in our brooder box. Unfortunately 2 eggs did not hatch. We discussed this with the children and they understood why this may have happened.

We have been learning to care for our 8 chicks making sure they have clean bedding and plenty of fresh food and water.

HATCHING TIME!

This morning at 9 o’clock Reception had their first new arrival. Our first chick has pecked their way through their egg. Soon after, at half past 9, our second chick followed!

Keep checking the blog for more chick updates.

Video coming soon …

Keep checking for regualar updates on the school blog 🙂
