Swans – Reception

A Coronation Day Celebration


Making Pizzas 

Around the World
This half term we have been learning about different countries from around the world. We loved learning about India and enjoyed tasting some poppadoms and mango chutney.
Look at the beautiful Indian clothes we dressed up in.

Meeting Mrs Cressey’s Tortoise

We enjoyed learning about hibernation in Reception. Mrs Cressey brought her pet tortoise in to show us. We enjoyed finding out about how tortoises hibernate and how to look after them. We all had a stroke of his shell too!

Meeting Jaxon’s Pet Squirrel

We had such fun meeting Squiz the Squirrel – Jaxon’s pet.   Jaxon and his Mum told us lots about how they look after their squirrel and we asked lots of questions. The children loved watching Squiz eating his favourite food – pumpkin seeds!

Forest Schools

We went on an Autumn walk around the school grounds.
