Welcome to Reception!

Welcome to Reception! As you can see from our pictures, we have settled in really well to school life. We have been very busy and we have learnt lots of new things already.
We have been busy learning all about phonics and have impressed Mrs Stevens and Miss Lyons with how well we are practicing and using our sounds. We have been trying to form our letters correctly and some of us have even had a go at putting the sounds together to make words!
Exploring the forest has been very exciting. We began by creating our own boundaries by placing blue string where we felt we needed to stop to keep ourselves safe. Once we had done that, the fun began! We have made mud pies, apple soup, climbed trees and captured minibeasts.
Take a look at a few of our pictures to see what we have been up to ...

This term we have been fortunate to take part in a pottery experience. A lovely man, called Jon, showed us how to mould our clay into a sausage shape and then put them together to create a plant pot. Once we had completed our pot, we shaped some clay to create our faces. It was lots of fun and good exercise too! We can't wait to see the finished pots soon!
