Last week, Henrietta delivered books about birthday celebrations. Reception Class enjoyed listening to ‘Kipper’s Birthday’, by Mick Inkpen, and a non-fiction book about birthdays around the world. Bertie the Bee even found a poem about a birthday cake made out of mud, which inspired the children to make their own mud cakes at Forest School!
In class the children were busy making birthday cards for Kipper the dog, wrapping up presents for him, acting out the story in the role play area and making a real birthday cake for them all to share the party they had for him. At the party they played pass the parcel and enjoyed dancing.
In phonics the class have been very busy applying what they have learnt to reading and writing words and sentences. The children have also been enjoying re-reading their guided reading books on their own.
In science the class investigated which light source was the brightest and used the dataloggers to help them, and in RE they went to church to learn about Baptism. The proud parents took baby Charlie to the font to be baptised by our Reception Class priest, as the godparents and congregation watched on.
To end the week, Reception had Story Club with Mrs Barker. They used the British Value of ‘democracy’ to vote on the books they wanted to hear and enjoyed hot chocolate and biscuits as they listened to stories, including Room on a Broom and Kipper’s Birthday.
