Play and Stay

In July Reception Class had a wonderful chance to meet and play together in the classroom and the forest.  We enjoyed making habitats and painting butterflies.

Play and Stay

St Albans Cathedral class trip

During our trip to St Albans Cathedral we explored our 5 senses.

We used our sense of smell candles and herb.

We used our sense of touch feel special clothing and the beautiful floor tiles.

We used our sense of listen to the organ, choir and bells.

We used our sense of taste ... to enjoy our lunch.

Finally we made our own tiles.

Heritage Week - The Romans

We have been learning about archaeologists who have taught us about our past.

We carried out our own archaeological dig finding coins, slate tools, pots and tiles.


We visited the museum to see real floor mosaics and then made our own.

We have been drawing our sunflower and harvesting the seeds for the spring

Number Day...

Today we have been using our estimating skills.  We have been exploring the size of the giants foot, playing in the sand, parking cars etc.

Outdoor painting

Today we had fun in the forest.  We played with our friends and collected materials and objects from the forest to make painting tools.  We explored the patterns the objects made and created our own abstract art.
