Designing and Making Crowns - we look so regal!

We loved our visit to Ash End Farm - the children were exceptionally behaved and learnt a lot!

We walked to visit a local sculpture - The Genie of Industry. Lots of us had passed it but never noticed it before!

Our Autumn term class text in Reception was Elmer. The story of Elmer teaches us to celebrate our differences and embrace that we are all unique. The children chose their favourite animal to collage to make it different.

In Reception have been talking about how much we have changed and grown since we were born. We then explored what we would like to be "when we grow up." We have aspiring doctors, builders, ice cream shop owners, vets, police officers, firefighters and bakers in our class!

Building an Obstacle Course - the children used the obstacle course we created and then decided to make their own! So creative!

We are loving our sound work. The children are so excited to be starting their reading journey!
