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 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.

In week 2 we followed Barnaby Bear to our capital city, London. The children loved learning about the different London landmarks. We built a Big Ben and a London bus for our classroom and the children enjoyed making Buckingham Palace in the construction area. In maths we looked at addition and subtraction using a London bus and we also talked about measuring time and how we can sequence our day. What a busy week!

We were also lucky enough to have a visit from Rhubarb Theatre Company and all of reception enjoyed the play 'Sidney's Shed'.

In week 4 we travelled to Africa with Barnaby Bear. Our core text this week was 'Handa's Surprise'. The children learnt about different exotic fruits and enjoyed making their own tasty fruit kebab. Our school is linked with The Gambia project and we sponsor a little girl called Jo Jo. Reception loved learning about where Jo Jo lives and we held our very own Fairtrade tea party for our families. We raised enough money to send Jo Jo to school for a whole year!

Our topic for Spring term 2 is Down on the Farm. We will be learning all about farms and the things that we get from different animals. We will also learn about crops and the things we use these crops for. We thought about what we already know about farms and what we would like to find out. 

What a busy first two weeks back at school. We are enjoying learning all about farming. We had a special visitor to our classroom. Farmer Joe brought us seven eggs and an incubator. We are going to wait twenty one days for the eggs to hatch and then we will have some chicks in our classroom! We are very excited and we are counting down the days until they hatch. In maths we have been beginning to look at subtraction and have been solving our own problems using practical objects and number lines.

Week 3 was Mothering Sunday week in Reception. We talked all about the ladies that are special to us and why we love them so much. The children made cards and posies for their special ladies. We invited our grown ups into school to celebrate with us and the children did a wonderful job of showing their thanks to Mummys, Aunties and Grandmas!

In week 4 we had a special visit from Mrs Kirk, who owns an alpaca farm. We learnt all about alpacas and felt their soft wool. The children cleaned the wool using the carding machine, and had a turn at weaving with the wool on the peg board. We can make lots of different things using alpaca wool.

We have had a super time in week 4 celebrating British Science Week. The children have all been exploring materials and their properties. The first experiment involved changing liquid to a solid and we did this by making butter. The children all poured cream into a small pot, added a marble and shook the tub for ten whole minutes! We observed the change that had happened in our pots. The second experiment involved the Billy Goats Gruff! The children had to make a bridge strong enough to hold the goat - the tricky part was the bridge had to be made out of newspaper!

Our World Book Day Bear themed dress-up day has fallen on the last day before the Easter holidays. Our little bears had an exciting morning... the Easter Bunny had visited our classroom over night and left the children a letter and some clues. The clues took us all around school and eventually led us back to the classroom where the Easter Bunny had left some chocolate eggs in our nest cakes! What a special treat....

We are having so much fun measuring down in Reception! Our challenge this week was to make a hat for the Giant... we had to measure his head! The children had a fantastic time doing this. We then measured our feet, the Giant's feet and Mr Lidbury's feet in cubes! The children have also been busy teaching the Giant how to clean his teeth, writing lots of lovely instructions.
