St Edward's Reception Class

2020-2021 St Edward's Reception Class is taught by Miss Pataria and supported by Mrs Palmer.



RE - We have continued to learn about God's world. We worked in groups to sort things that God did and did not make, we painted our favourite animals, we created our own 'world' scene.

We have been learning about positional language. We have been using our outside area to help us use the language on, under, in between, next to, behind and in front.

Our first RE lesson we learnt about God's World. We went for a walk outside to find things that God made, painted out own pictures and explored animals in the water and shaving foam.

Here is a little preview of us doing Squiggle!

Squiggle! This is a dance activity we do everyday, first with flappers and then with pens to help build up our muscles ready for writing. We have great fun!

End of Term 6 - We had a party themed day, we made party hats, played with balloons and played party games.

We have enjoyed speaking about our trip to the Church before lock down, drawing our own pictures of the church and labelling as well as decorating our own crosses.

We have been reading lots of stories based on Pirates, the Seaside and the Summer. We have been using our phonics to write descriptive sentences to match pictures. We have been adding, subtracting and even writing our own number sentences. We have had lots of fun making jelly fish, parrots, pirate swords, buckets and much more using different materials.

Science experiment - Our predictions and results.

Science Experiment - How many drops of water can you get on a 2p coin before it starts to fall off? We experimented using a pipette, a syringe, a small jug and a cup. We made predictions before finding out the amount. We also compared different coins (1p, 2p and 5p)

RE - A Short Man. We have been reading the scripture about Jesus and Zacchaeus. We have been acting this out, writing our own sorry messages and creating medals of how we have been brave.

Science Week - Exploring space figures in the cornflour.

Science Week - Exploring Balloons using our senses.

 We've had a fantastic couple of weeks celebrating Chinese New Year in St Edward's Class , from learning to say Happy New Year in Cantonese to the challenge of eating rice and noodles with chop sticks .We even had a Chinese restaurant in our classroom! 


We had a fabulously frosty snow and ice day in foundation stage! Infact we enjoyed it so much we are going to continue this theme in our learning this term.

We started the new term with a bang!


We looked at fireworks and explored the language that describes them and used a variety of media to create different representations.


Reception Class celebrated Diwali through the story of Rama and Sita, learning the meaning of light to Hindus. We carefully followed instructions to make salt dough for our diva lamps. Our work looked closely at repeated patterns and Rangoli. For a special treat we tasted some traditional Diwali sweets called Laddu. To finish our celebrations we took part in a Bollywood workshop and at the end of the day we were a part of a whole school performance to our families.
