        Welcome to Reception!

        Our Reception children have settled into school amazingly well and have been enjoying some fabulous learning this term based on the book Supertato….

        As part of our work on Supertato we have been looking closely at the colour and texture of vegetables and made our very own Supertato. We have been practising our writing as we recorded which vegetables had been trapped by the evil pea and counted the potatoes.


        To celebrate the end of a wonderful first term in school and the end of our ‘Superhero Me!’ topic we held a Superhero day where the children dressed as their favourite super hero character and took part in a range of superhero tasks. As part of our number work the children were set a measuring mission to use the cubes to order the height of the superheroes and we developed our fine motor control by retrieving the spiderman counters from the web amongst a range of other exciting tasks. As part of our Literacy learning we read the super story, ‘Supertato’ and the children helped solve a puzzling situation after watching ‘CCTV’ footage of the teachers discovering that all the fruit had been stolen by the Evil Pea.  They did a fabulous job of writing letters to the office to request more fruit.
