People that help us

Last week in class we were learning about the different kinds of people that help us. We had a visit from our lollipop lady who helps us cross the road when we come to school.

We went out and visited our local zebra crossing where we were able to learn about the different colours that are on our zebra crossings.

Norfolk Wildlife Trust

In the first summer term Reception had a challenge from Norfolk Wildlife trust. We were challenged to encourage minibeasts into our school environment. We decided to plant new plants in the garden to encourage them. We succeeded and Norfolk Wildlife Trust came in to see our garden at the end of our topic and were really pleased with our efforts. They gave us a certificate to say well done. We also successfully looked after tadpoles and watched them change into froglets before releasing them back into a pond.




Time and Tide visit

Reception went to visit the Time and Tide museum on Monday 12th June. We had lots of fun following the adventure of a herring fish and were amazed by how tall the smoke houses were and how stinky they were.

In the afternoon we looked at a herring and had a go at drawing it. We also tried smoked haddock. 17 of us really enjoyed it.




Welcome Back

We hope you had a great half term. We have now finished saving the school as Paw Patrollers and our learning about Julia Donaldson books for the next two weeks. This week is ‘Sharing a Shell’. Click on the link below to see the parent sheet.

New Paw Patrol mission!!

Today Mrs Fearns was very distraught as she couldn’t remember her bike lock combination!! Luckily Reception Paw Patrol were on hand and were able to channel their ‘Chase the Police Dog’ skills to sort the problem out. They even used real walkie talkies in the challenge!! ‘No Job is to big, No pup is too small’

Paw Patrol Missions in Reception

This week in Reception we have had 3 Paw Patrol missions. The first came through on Monday with a very concerned Mrs Fearns who had lost the keys for school!!!! We had to use our senses like Paw Patroller Tracker to find them!!

The next mission on Thursday was helping to create light in our dark shed so Mr Himpleman could see to tidy it up!

On Friday Mrs Fearns was insistent she needed our help to promote recycling in school. We decided to channel Paw Patroller Rocky and designed recycling posters for our new recycle bins we are getting in class. Mrs Fearns was super pleased with them and announced the posters which will be used around the school. Well done Yasmine and Andreja-great work.
