Pets at home

Posted by srobinsonunity on Monday Dec 5, 2016 Under Uncategorized

Over the last week we have been following the childrens’ interest on animals. We have spoken about all the different types of animals you can have as a pet. We wrote about our own pets and drew pictures of them. As a group we spoke about how to care for our animals and what they need to stay strong and healthy. We have been role playing and have set up our own vets. We’ve had lots of fun!


“I don’t have any pets but I would like a cat.”

“I want doggy, just one.”

“I have two dogs, 1 cat and 5 fish.”

“I got doggy in my house.”

Art fortnight

Posted by srobinsonunity on Monday Nov 28, 2016 Under Uncategorized

The artist that inspired us was David Batchelor. David uses lots of construction materials, shapes and neon lights. We made special neon light biscuits and two pieces of art work. Our first piece was a set of traffic lights using neon colours. The second piece, we used different 2D shapes and silhouetted over them using neon colours. We then removed the shapes to see the end effect.


We have had lots of fun!

Remembrance Day and Children in need

Posted by srobinsonunity on Monday Nov 28, 2016 Under Uncategorized

On 11.11.16, we all took part in a 2 minute silence to remember all the soldiers that fought in the war. We made our own poppy wreath using our hand print.

For Children in Need we got to wear something spotty. We enjoyed lots of different activities throughout the day and helped raise money for the charity by buying biscuits and cakes.

I’ll huff and i’ll puff and i’ll blow your house down…

Posted by srobinsonunity on Friday Oct 21, 2016 Under Uncategorized

Can you guess what we have been learning about in Reception these last two week?
We have been reading the traditional tale ‘The Three Little Pigs’. From re-reading the story daily, the children have been re-telling the story to us! We have discussed how the pigs must have felt when the wolf was trying to blow their houses down, how the wolf was feeling at the end when he landed in a pot of hot stew and some children have enjoyed using our role play character mask to act the story out!

We have also used straw, sticks and pretend bricks to build our own houses indoors and outdoors and discussed what materials we would used if we were to build our own house.

Last Thursday was also ‘hand washing day’. We have the story ‘Blow Your Nose The Big Bad Wolf’ and have discussed importance of keeping clean, using tissues when we sneeze and washing our hands multiple times throughout the day!

Don’t forget to use bug club and write in your home school dairies all the fun things you have done over the half term! We look forward to hearing all about your adventures!

We hope you have a lovely half term and we will see you on Monday 7th November.

During our first half term in Reception, we have been learning about the season Autumn. We have been discussing what happens to the trees/leaves, what colour the leaves change into, what happens to the weather and the clothes we need to wear!

The children have enjoyed exploring in the creative/paint exploring using Autumn colours. We have used pastels to shade over the leaves, painted the leaves to create pattern, felt and discussed the textures of acorns and conkers and make some beautiful Autumn pictures!

We also went on an Autumn walk. We put on our wellies and visited Mr Davenport at our allotment! We collected lots of leaves on our journey and saw our pigs, chickens and falkins for the first time! It was an exciting time!

Thank You!

Posted by srobinsonunity on Monday Oct 17, 2016 Under Uncategorized


We would like to say a big thank you to all parents/carers that came to our phonics workshop on Thursday after school!

Last week, we introduced the home school diary books. These will be sent home every Friday night and will include a section about what we have done in class that week, a small literacy and maths activity and any information/dates you need to know. Please ensure your child brings the book in by Thursdays.

Also, a letter has been sent home about Bug Club. Bug Club is a website which allows your child to access books online which have been allocated by their teacher. Again, this is another opportunity for you to discuss and share books!

Lastly, we have now started using Dojos. Dojos is a reward system for children for a variety of reasons such as: following the rules, trying hard, playing nicely, being kind and so on. On the letter we sent home, there is a link where you can download an app onto your phone and you will receive a notification when your child receives a Dojo. There is also a link where you can message your teacher and attach images.

Any questions about anything, please don’t hesitate to come and ask!
We look forward to our next parents/carers session where there will be a chance for you to come into our classroom for a fun/craft afternoon session next half term.

Thank you again!

What a busy and exciting first term we have had settling into our new classrooms and making lots of new friends! We have been learning our new classroom rules and routines, learning how to share and how to be kind to each other. We have enjoyed going to the dinner hall for lunch and then playing in the big playground with year 1 and year 2!

We have now sent home reading books for you to enjoy sharing and  discussing the books with your child. We hope you enjoy them and we will change reading books every Tuesday and Friday so please bring them back!

Our blog will now be updated on a regular basis with information, dates for your diary and what we have been learning in our class.

Thank you

We’re going to the airport…

Posted by srobinsonunity on Friday Jul 1, 2016 Under Uncategorized

This week we have been writing all about our holidays. Mrs Gunn came in to talk to us all about DisneyWorld and we wrote about our favourite Disney characters. We made our own passport, wrote about where we have been on holiday and where we would like to go in the future. On Wednesday we got to visit the airport and fly on a plane. We had to buy our own tickets and go through passport checks and security. We all went to Disneyland and have a fabulous time!

Have a great weekend!

Aliens are coming!

Posted by srobinsonunity on Friday Jun 24, 2016 Under Uncategorized

This week we have had so much fun with aliens! We have been reading lots of books about aliens and even had an email from a real alien called Arego! Arego needed our help finding his family dog Wilberforce. We have made wanted posters, wrote an email back to Arego saying we are happy to help him find Wilberforce, and designed our own aliens. We even had an alien visit us in school on Wednesday. He were playing with all our toys outside but then we scared him off! We were very excited to see a real alien!

Next week is writing week and we will be looking at different ways of travelling and different holidays we have been on. Have a great weekend!

Reception Team :)
