We love our music lessons in Reception! Can you find the pulse of this song? How does this song make you feel? What instruments can you hear? The children then decided to carry on making music outside πŸ‘πŸ»πŸŽΌπŸŒŸ

Finding the pulse...We love music 🎢

How do polar bears keep warm? We really enjoyed carrying out today’s science experiment. The children were able to talk about how their hand felt that wasn’t covered and compare it to the one that was covered πŸŒŽβ„οΈ

Oh no our winter animals are frozen! How can we free them?

“Let’s get a hammer.”

“I like this”

“Put it next to the radiator!”

“I’m getting some water...warm water on it.”

“Let’s fill it with water and get them out.”



We are super excited each week for our gymnastics sessions.

We start each session by stretching our muscles. We know that stretching keeps our muscles flexible, strong and healthy.   


We know that warming up our body prepares the body and mind for the main activity. After we warm up our heart rate increases

"I can feel my heart beating faster and faster" Jaxon

"The blood is moving around my body so fast now " Eden 

"The heart is a muscle , it beats all the time - when you exercise it beaters quicker" Lexi

Each week we learn new skills and movements. Over the past few weeks we have been exploring 'Jumping' . We can create a jumping sequence... 

"A tuck jump,star jump, tuck jump, star jump ..." Elodie

"Pencil jump,star jump and half turn jump..." Sam

We performed our new skills for an audience ...

Cool down

We know it's important to cool down our body at the end of our exercise session. Our heart rate and breathing will slow down. 

We enjoyed developing our art skills by rubbing, washing and sprinkling to create Arctic Art ...

Polar Explorers continued...Today we had great fun finding out more about penguins. We are geographers! πŸŒŽβ„οΈ

Number Fun... recognising numbers to 20 πŸ‘πŸ»πŸŒŸ

We have made a busy start to the year! The children have decided they would like the role play area to be transformed into a doctor’s surgery. The have all had an enjoyable time acting out different roles. They have been developing their writing skills by completing doctor’s notes, patient information and medicine forms. Most importantly, they have been treating poorly dolls, teddies and teachers that happened to walk by!

Miss Polly had a dolly...

Polar Explorers 

We have started to find out about the Polar Regions- The Arctic and Antarctic.

The children are learning to identify these regions on a world map. We have set up an arctic tray and a antarctic tray for the children to explore and enjoy.
