Silly Soup

We have had so much fun today singing the 'Silly Soup Song' and finding about objects that beginning with the sound 'S'. Miss Talbot sang the song whilst the children added objects starting with the sound 'S' to the ingredients and she mixed them in the bowl.  The children enjoyed it so much that some of them later on played the role of the teacher and sang the song while other children added to the mix. Fantastic phonics work today Reception.  Here is the song if you would like to have a go with your child at home.  


What the Ladybird Heard?


On Monday we had great fun reading the story 'What the Ladybird Heard?' by Julia Donaldson. We acted out the different sound the animals made and discussed our favourite part of the story with our learning partners. I think the children all agreed that our favourite part was when the animals tricked Hefty Hugh and Lanky Len and they went splash into the duck pond. The children also enjoyed decorating biscuits to look like ladybirds, counting out the number of spots on their wings whilst decorating.

Writing our name

We have had so much fun this week learning to write our names! The children have worked fantastically to form the letters of their names. They have used challk, paints, whiteboard pens and used their fingers too to draw the different letters in shaving foam, sand and mud. We are all so impressed with the progress they have made so far - well done Reception! You are all superstars!!!


An exciting letter

On Wednesday we recieved a very exciting package and letter. After many guesses we decided to open the parcel first. It was some delicious looking bread. We didn't know who had sent it until we read the letter attached. We found out it was from the Little Red Hen. In her letter she explained that, even though she had asked her friends, no one helped her make the bread and she had to do it all by herself. We ate the bread and it really was DELICIOUS!!!


First Week

Wow...we are so impressed with how the children have settled into their new learning environment.  They all seem so happy and are enjoying the start of their journey at St Annes.  They have been extremely busy learning new routines and exploring the toys in the classrooms.  We are especially proud with how well the children have been eating lunch in the school hall. This week we have learnt how to hold a tray, use scissors and a glue stick and write on a whiteboard. Take a look at the pictures below to see how much fun we have been having! 


First Day in Reception

The children have already made a great start at St Anne's and friendships are already forming, which is lovely to see. Reception is a magical year where we, as teachers, have the privelege to build the foundations for life long learning. Take a look at some of the pictures below to see how much fun we are already having.
