Reception Gallery of Events 2020-21

Take a look at some of the fun things we have been doing in Reception.

Diva Lamps - November 2020

We learnt about the festival of Diwali and looked at different ways that it is celebrated and the children then made their own Diva lamps. They made the salt dough themselves, added food coluring to make their diva lamp a different colour and then moulded it and added glitter for decoration. They all looked super and the chidlren were very proud of them.

Colour Mixing - November 2020

In art, the children learnt about primary colours. They then practised mixing colours to look at the secondary colours they could make. They painted each hand in a primary colour of their choice, mixed them together and printed them onto paper. It was very messy but very fun!

Bonfire - November 2020

To introduce our topics Seasons and Celebrations and as the children are unable to attend Bonfires this year we decided to have one at school. The children made their own sparklers using breadsticks, chocolate and sprinkles and we then went to the forest school to make the fire. We watched the teacher light the bonfire and then used our homemade sparklers to pretend to write and draw patterns. We enjoyed singing campfire songs and even had hot chocolate.

Baking 'The Gingerbread Man' - October 2020

We learnt about Traditional Tales and read the story of 'The Gingerbread Man'. At the end of the week the children enjoyed making their own gingerbread man. They weighed out the ingredients, mixed them together and used a rolling pin and cutter. The children had a wonderful time and enjoyed taking them home to eat.

Traditional Tales Ball - October 2020

To celebrate the end of our Traditional Tales topic we had a Ball. We all dressed up as our favourite character and came into school for a fun packed day. We read lots of stories, played games and enjoyed a tea party. We also made our own stories with our friends and drew pictures in them.
