This year in Primrose Hill is the year of Independent Thinking.
Learning in Reception happens within children’s play and through small focused activities with an adult. Often children will talk about their learning as play. Provision within the classroom is designed for children to engage, explore and learn. Giving children real life experiences allows them to express themselves and learn within the real world. Listening to children and tailoring learning to their interests and needs maximises learning opportunities.
Please remember if you have any questions, queries or concerns about you child and their learning then please come and speak with me. I will be in the playground every morning and afternoon.

A big thank you to all the help collecting the milk cartons! WATCH THIS SPACE.....the Igloo is now under construction! We will add pictures in stages as the structure is built!

Summer is nearly here!

Express Yourself - I Like Performance

During our Express Yourself Focus Week, we learnt a new dance and wrote a poem about things we like. We made hats from art work of things we like, such as chocolate, milkshake, animals and people.

Pudsey Park Adventure

We had a great time at Pudsey park. Receptiobn children had the opportunity to explore the park with all their friends. We went into the animal house and found evidence that Dr Bad had visited and he even left Len and Terry. We are so glad to have them back! Playing in the park gave us plenty of opportunities for physical deveopment! It was a really great afternoon!

Dr Bad takes Len and Terry!

On Superhero dress up day children were presented with an email from Dr Bad. He had taken our class teddies and it was our job as superhero's to get them back. Children have written letters to Dr bad, made wanted posters and painted pictures of his face. The email from Dr Bad created lots of excitement in Reception and now it is our mission to rescue Len and Terry.

Superhero cooking!

We have been learning about super foods that are healthy and good for us. We looked at foods we like and foods we dont like. We decided to make Superhero buns made from carrots to give us super eyes and a healthier treat! We also used our phonic knowledge to write our superhero sounds!

We have been collecting milk cartons in Reception so we can build our very own igloo! Collecting the milk cartons led to lots of interesting and exciting learing. Take a look at our maths and literacy learing. Have you ever tasted blue, orange or purple milk?

We spent our money on some fun and exciting things to use in the classroom including Twister and a knights castle! We ended our visit with a drink and bun in Asda cafe. We had crackers to pull with our friends and an exciting sticker activity! A very busy morning for Reception!!
