We are the youngest children at Kidgate! Mrs Maltman and Miss Thorne are our class teachers. Miss Hallion, Miss Barber and Mr Fieldsend help us learn too.
Keep visiting this page to see how we learn and the exciting new things we will be discovering!
Zebadee visits Reception
Stacey from the Hedgehog Hospital came to visit us with Zebadee just one of the many patients in her care. The children asked lots of insightful questions and learnt many interesting facts about Hedgehogs. The children in Reception also generously donated food and bedding to create a luxury hedgehog hamper.
Children in Need
Everyone was delighted to take part in and support fundraising for Children in Need. It was a spotastic day!
Twit-twoo! Owl visitors at Kidgate!
We were very lucky to have Sydney the Barn Owl, Neo the Scots Owl and Harry the Eagle Owl visit us from Rushmoor Farm! We all learned lots about how owls hunt and even got to hold Sydney! What a marvellous way to start our week! It was such a hoot!
We retold the story of the little red hen. Having been inspired by the story we baked our own bread rolls. They were delicious.
We had a visit from our local PCSOs. They dropped in to say 'hello', introduce them to us and talk about how they keep us safe. We even got to try on some of the uniform!
This week, in Reception, we have been talking about why some people in Britain choose to celebrate Diwali. Senita, who is Hindu, came to tell us the story of Rama and Sita. She also shared how she celebrates Diwali with her family.
We have made our own Diva Lamps using clay and have learned an Indian dance!
In Reception we have been inspired by the work of the famous artist Vincent Van Gogh. We used particular colours to recreate 'Sunflowers'.
Roald Dahl Day!
We had a special visitor at school today...Mr Wonka came to look for the children in Reception and ask them about their learning...but where were they? The children in EY had magicked the characters from Roald Dahl's stories into life from his books to celebrate Roald Dahl's 100th birthday. What a great effort from everybody!
As part of our 'Marvellous Me' topic, we have been busy painting our self portraits.
