Welcome to Year 1 2022 - 2023
First week in Year 1!
The children have made an excellent start to Year 1. They have been using a variety of toys and comparing them to toys from the past as part of our History topic. They have shown excellent learning behaviours and they have really impressed me with their sensible attitudes!
Welcome to Reception's Class Page!
How did we celebrate our first 100 days of school?
We celebrated the fact that we have had an amazing first Hundred Days of our school life – here’s to the next hundred!
Some of our favourite moments from our first term ...
The Gingerbread Man
We had so much fun exploring the story of the Gingerbread Man!
We predicted what might have happened if the Gingerbread Man had fallen in the river and then tested our theories by leaving gingerbread men in cups of water. We made gingerbread men and enjoyed eating them! We also delivered some to the other classes. We had a gingerbread man phonics hunt in the woods and we even had a go at designing our own using ginger-flavoured play doh.
So proud of Reception for their thoughtfulness. They stood beautifully for the two minutes silence and they created two poppies from handprints, one that is in school and one that was displayed at the Fire Station on Crowthorne High Street.
Once Upon a Time Day
The children looked amazing and we had so much fun exploring stories and rhymes! From making jam tarts to seeing who could jump like a frog for the longest, from attempting a whole class instrumental piece on boomwhackers to huffing and puffing with a hairdryer to blow down their houses, it was a great day!
As part of our Diwali celebrations, we made diwa lamps from clay and decorated them. We then used them to do a Walk of Light.
