This is where you will find out what Butterflies have been doing in class...
Our current topic is:
Travel (including transport and space)
At the start of the new term we celebrated the Feast of the Epiphany. All Reception children attended a Liturgy to learn about this special Feast Day. As part of the celebration, the children made a crown and had a small tea party back in their classroom. They had lots of fun!
It's been a very busy few weeks in Butterflies getting ready for Christmas. We have had fun wrapping presents, making Christmas cards and stockings. We were all very proud of our performance in the Nativity Liturgy and we know you were proud of us too. We sung, danced and munched through lots of delicious treats at our Christmas Party and we are definitely ready for Christmas!
The children had great fun celebrating 'Kipper's' birthday as part of our topic. The children wrapped presents for Kipper, made a party hat, danced and played games in the hall and finally ate biscuits that each child designed and decorated. They all had great fun and so did the adults!!
REMEMBRANCE: This artwork is the collaboration of all Reception children which commemorates Remembrance Day. Each child used a finger print to form each of the poppies. The picture now hangs proudly in the Reception corridor.
To help us understand what happens during a baptism, we acted out the different stages. The children enjoyed role playing the priest, parents and Godparents.
In celebration of Diwali, the children listened to the story of Rama and Sita. They also learned that during Diwali, special food is eaten and Mehndi patterns are drawn on feet and hands. The children had the opportunity to design their own Mendhi patterns and do some Bhangra steps!
We have been learning about how special our name is and the children went on a name hunt to find their own name.
We have been learning about Hanukkah. We made potato latkes in our mud kitchen. We even had to dig our own potatoes.
The new Reception children in Butterflies are enjoying their first weeks at school
