Reception, I can't believe we have made it to the half way point of our school year already! But what a lovely way to finish our term with a week of celebrations!

Monday saw us sharing our fantastic musical talents with our delighted parents and grandparents. A huge thank you to Mrs Swan for all her hard work in teaching us to sing, play instruments and begin to read music.

On Tuesday, we explored why people celebrate Shrove Tuesday with pancakes and how this plays a part in the story of Easter.

Wednesday saw us celebrating our Christian value of Love as we discussed how important it was to be loving and kind to everyone, reinforcing our interfaith message from last week "Love of the good and Love of the neighbour". We made some beautiful valentines cards for our families using symmetry in our heart designs.
Wednesday also saw the start of Lent and we thought about how we could choose something about ourselves we could improve on: being a good friend seemed to be the most popular choice.

Thursday we made Chinese dragons and fortune puppets, in preparation for celebrating Chinese New Year today. We watched a video clip of children celebrating New Year in Liverpool with dragons and firecrackers and compared this to how we celebrate New Year. We also enjoyed a yummy Chinese menu for lunch today, well done those children who tried something new.

In between all our celebrations we managed to squeeze in some learning time too!

In our number learning we have continued to explore number patterns with numbers up to 100. We are getting really good at spotting the missing numbers in the 100 square now. Impressively we are using our number line to work out numbers that are 2 or 3, more or less than a given number. We are developing super number brains!

In our literacy work we have had a week of storytelling, acting out our stories and thinking about our word choices. This has helped us with our independent writing task today as we crafted our dinosaur adventure stories, thinking of our story beginning, main characters and what happened.

This theme of storytelling has followed into our RE lessons this week as we explored the concept of The Kingdom of God, considering what makes a good king. We role played being a king and queen for the day and what we would do. After listening to stories where Jesus is considered to be a king we reflected how his life demonstrated this by giving people good rules (Jesus the leader), helping others (Jesus the healer) and speaking with power (Jesus the teacher).

We have had such a blast this term learning about dinosaurs, we even found another dinosaur tooth in the garden this week!
I look forward to next term and our new learning about new life and growing plants.
Enjoy the holiday
Mrs Taylor
