This term our topic is 

'Out of this world!' 

We will be looking Bonfire night, Diwali making a range of pictures and candle holders as well as exploring the story Whatever next. 

Keep an eye out for some of the fun things we have been doing in class.


We have been looking at Diwali this week, watching videos to help us learn more. During our topic session we have been using clay to create our own Diwali candles that will be coming home with us soon. Here are the results of our candles so far! 

We have been using magnifying glasses to explore the forest area. We have been looking closely at bugs, leaves and any other interesting things we can find! Take a look at the pictures below. 

As part of Forces Friday we created our own poppies to create a poppy display on our classroom wall. 


We have looked at fireworks and bonfire night this term. We have watched videos on Bonfire safety, seen a video of a firework display and had a go at creating our own bonfire and firework pictures. 

As part of our Space topic we have looked at pictures of space and have been listening to a planet song. We have created our own pictures of space using black paper and coloured chalk. Here are some of our pictures that are currently on display in the main area of Reception. 

We have been enjoying running and walking around the track seeing how many laps we can do! We have been writing down how long we have been running for back in the classroom. We have been aiming for 15 minutes when we can! You can see some of our pictures from the track below!
