Summer Term - Reception at Stepney Green farm

Reception visited the farm during science week. We were able to learn all about food grown on the farm and food produced by animals. When we met the animals we learnt about what animals eat, their homes and how we can look after them. We even fed the sheep hay and stroked the chicken.

Summer Term - Reception and the life cycle of a chicken

We have welcomed chicken eggs into our classroom. We are observing and exploring the life cycle of a chicken. We researched what will happen by reading the non-fiction text ‘Egg to chicken’. We then observed what was happening each day.

Summer Term - To the Ends of The Earth

For our RE topic, we have been learning about the importance of celebrating mass with our families, our school family and the parish family. We visited church to learn more about mass and special events that take place here. We also had a ‘Stay and Play’ event in school. Parents and other family members were invited to share our learning and play. We had a wonderful time!

Spring Term - Visit to Discover

For Citizenship Week, Reception learnt about the importance of looking after others and being a good citizen. We were given the task of looking at the elderly community and how we could help. We read a beautiful story called Miss Tizzy, all about an elderly lady who loves to play with children and saw how much they love her back. We reflected on this story and decided to share our time with the elderly at Summerdale care home. Prior to our visit we made special cards for them, we sang songs and danced.

This week in reception we have been learning all about the Nativity story and the special celebration of Advent. We made our own play dough advent wreaths, Chris tingles and advent candles. We also wrote some captions all about what happened in the story. We wrote about Angel Gabriel visiting Mary, Mary and Joseph travelling on a donkey and baby Jesus being born.
