2020-2021 St Edward's Reception Class is taught by Mrs Riordan, Miss Lewis and supported by Miss Wilson.



Our fantastic new Year R children have completed their first full week at school! Everyone has settled in well, making new friends and having lots of fun too!

What an amazing Friday! We have celebrated Rainbow Day for the NHS, created bunting and pictures to say thank you. This afternoon we joined in with lots of fun football activities to celebrate England in the final!

We had a fantastic afternoon when the Ice Cream Van came to visit!

Our Kings and Queens dress up day to kick start our new topic. Don't we look fabulous!

We have been reading a new story called Beegu and joining in with lots of space themed activities. In Maths we have been focusing on 3d shapes, learning new vocabulary like edges, faces and vertices. We have been very lucky to get balance bikes and had lots of fun trying them out!

Number Day! We had a very busy number day. We had a number hunt, played number bingo, solved number problems, drew numbers with chalk and counted amounts, counted and matched amounts, recognised and coloured numbers, played a chase games of astronauts and aliens and counted how many we had and compared who had the most and least. During snack and lunch time we joined in with number songs.

We used tissue paper to create flowers to make a wreath for Mary.

We have been helping Mrs Neeves with the garden area and pond.

Easter Egg Hunt

Easter Bonnet Parade

Easter - We have spent lots of time reading the Easter story, sequencing the story, making cards and chocolate cakes, decorating eggs and crosses.

Reflection Day - Today we shared an assembly, talked about Coronavirus and had reflection time. We then went for a walk around the school to look at daffodils. We then created our own sun catcher daffodils to create a happy display in our classroom.

SCIENCE WEEK - We have been doing lots of different Science activities, linked to our story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. On Monday we melted wax to create paintings. On Tuesday we created our own ice gardens and put it in the freezer. On Wednesday we created flitter bottles. On Thursday we used real food to create a crunch building, butterfly and cocoon. In addition to this, we have been drawing and writing about the life cycles of butterflies. We now even have our own caterpillars growing in class!

WORLD BOOK DAY - This week we have been busy creating our own Dear Zoo book, measuring animals, creating masks and characters and using construction to create something from our favourite stories. We have also joined in with whole school activities of finding somewhere crazy (but safe) to read and recreating front covers of books.

9th February - Today is Internet Safety Day. First we shared a story about Buddy the Dog and how to ask for help when on the internet. Then we shared a story about Smartie the Penguin and spoke about different scenarios and what we should do next. We then created Smartie the Penguin masks and drew what we enjoyed most on our tablets with a sentence to match.
