Our new topic in Reception is Spring. In our classroom we now have a small fairy land where the children can create their own little world using natural resources. We also have Percy the Park Keepers Park!
The children have really enjoyed creating their own stories and acting these out!

Multi Sport Festival

This week Class 2 visited Temple Park to take part in a Multi sport festival. We had so much fun. We took part in lots of different sports, for example, netball, basketball, gymnastics, dodge ball, rugby, tennis and football.

Jack Frost

This week Class 2 have been reading Jack Frost. We received a letter from Jack explaining how his hands had dropped off in the freezing cold. Class 2 then found Jack Frost’s hands in the igloo! We then wrote letters back to him explaining how we had found his hands!

Class 2 then did their assembly on Jack Frost. We acted out the story and then we showed off our Jack Frosts we had made in Art!

Winter Homes

As our topic is Winter Wonderland we have been creating our own winter homes for a winter animal. We learnt all about winter animals, we then designed our winter home and this week we have finished our winter homes. Aren’t they fantastic? Well done Class 2!

3D Shapes

This week Class 2 have been learning about 3D shapes. We have learnt the names of the shapes cube, cuboid, cylinder, pyramid, cone and sphere. We have been describing the shapes to our friends to see if they could guess them. We also matched the real life objects to the 3D shapes.

In Literacy this week we have been reading Winnie in Winter. We discussed how Winnie felt during the winter and ten we thought of our own synonyms for cold. The children came up with frosty, icy, bitter, chilly, crisp, cool and freezing. We then out the words into sentences and wrote them.

Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?

This week we have been reading ‘Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?’. As a class we created our own story map, we re told the story, we used adjectives to describe the animals and then we had a go at writing a sentence about one of the animals. Some of the children wrote ‘The polar bear is scary’. We are trying to remember to use capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.

Dear Santa…

This week in Class 2 we have been writing letters to Santa. We made our own Christmas list to send off to Santa.

The children were very good at carefully sounding out the words.


This week Class 2 have been reading Superkid. We created our own story map, completed some shared writing and then had a go at creating our own superhero and labeling him.

It was also Class 2’s assembly this week – this was also on Superkid! Class 2 were amazing. They put on an excellent show with lovely loud, clear voices. Well done!

Wonderful Writing!

Class 2 have been sounding out CVC words and having a go at writing them! We remembered to use our letter rhymes to help us with our letter formation.
