Alien Alert!

January 21, 2020

Reception are really enjoying our new space topic! We have had lots of fun hiding aliens outside, making funny aliens using playdough and with junk modelling materials. We have also learnt about Tim Peake and enjoyed learning about his job as an astronaut.  We have also learnt lots of facts about space using non-fiction books! 


We are really excited to find out what else could happen in this topic!

Rockstar Day

January 14, 2020

Yesterday Reception enjoyed dressing up as Rockstars, they all looked amazing! We listened to rock music, and thoroughly enjoyed rocking out for the day! Using musical instruments we counted each beat, we went fast and we went slow. We even made up a song to help us count forwards and backwards. We had a great day, we felt like real Rockstars.
