In week 2 we learnt all about hibernating hedgehogs and the children were lucky enough to have a visit from Hedgehog Care. We met James the hedgehog and the children thought about the questions they wanted to ask the lady. We also talked about Remembrance Day and why some people choose to wear poppies at this time of year. The children worked together to make a beautiful poppy to display in Kidgate Academy's Remembrance assembly.

In week 3 we had a visit from Sunita Patel who talked to us about why some people choose to celebrate the festival Diwali. The children heard about the story of Rama and Sita and back in Reception class we made our own Diva lamps. We have also been learning all about 3D shapes and the children have loved making shapes out of clay and going on shape hunts around school! Shapes are everywhere!

In week 4 we focused on the text Owl Babies. The children loved the story and had lots of fun playing in our 'dark den' in the role play area. The children made some beautiful owl collage pictures too. In PE we focused on balancing this week and the children enjoyed the challenge of making it across the rope without falling into the crocodiles!

In week 6 our Christmas Shop opened for our Enterprise Day. The children loved selling the things they had made to their grown ups, pointing out what they could buy, taking the money and giving the change. We were really proud of our reception children and our class raised a huge £515.07.

Our topic for Spring Term 1 is Where in the World is Barnaby Bear? We will be following Barnaby Bear as he travels around the world, and will be learning about different countries along with him. We will also be exploring signs of winter and watching the changes in our environment. 

In week 1 we followed Barnaby Bear to the South Pole. Our core text for this week was Lost and Found and the children loved finding out all about penguins and what we would need to take if we were going on holiday somwhere cold! We made lists of what to pack, chose items for our suitcases and some children got to work building a boat for the boy and the penguin. In maths this week we explored capacity and did some experimenting with empty, half full and full containers.
