Reception enjoyed visiting Farmer Parrs.

We have been learning about 2 famous artist called Hundtwasser and Kandinsky. We mixed colours and tried to do our own version of their paintings. 

Today we held our first family Friday since covid began. We loved inviting our parents into school to make their family tree painting. It is a pleasure to get to know our new families and welcome them to the family of St Kentigern's Catholic Primary school.

Today we have had a GO green day. This follows on from our virtual assembly where we learnt about us being 'the eyes of the world' and looking after the world, our common home for future generations. We made Green promises and we hope to make a difference.

School dinners are so yummy. Before we ate our meal together we said Grace to thank God for our food.

Bless us O God as we sit together. Bless the food we eat today. Bless the hands that make the food. Bless us O God. Amen.

We have had a wonderful start to the school year in Reception. We have made many new friends and the children are starting to settle. Our theme has been based around the story 'Here we are' By Oliver Jeffers. Already the children have impressed us with their excellent creations. 

We met a real life author this morning! Tamar gave us a very important message through her story - we need to look after our wonderful world

We loved watching 'The Wizard of Oz'

Today we used maps of the local area to see what we could find. We found lots of places of interest and identified roads, houses, schools, churches, parks, health centres and Stanley Park. The list goes on!

Virtual visit to the dentist and how to look after our teeth

Today we brought our toothbrushes and toothpaste to school and cleaned our teeth. We talked about how we should look after our teeth and even had a talk from a real dentist. Thank you Dentist Jordan!

Thank you to all the parents who sent in a video about your Jobs. We really enjoyed sharing them and made a lovely display about the people who help us!

We enjoyed learning about Queen Elizabeth and we had a Royal tea party.

We celebrated Earth day on Thursday 22nd April. We focused on plastic pollution.

Reception have been reading Super Worm! We thought about what makes us a good person and decorated stones displaying the positive words. We made personal rainbows with different words describing ourselves. We enjoyed measuring different worms in maths. Can you describe yourself positively?

Easter fun in Reception!

Our theme for Spring 2 has been New Life. We have learnt about the lifecycles of chicks, how to care for animals, the role of a vet and much more. The children in Reception loved having the chicks in class.

World Book Day 2021! The theme is share a story, Marley our school dog enjoyed a few stories in Reception. We even had a virtual bedtime story on Zoom in the evening!

Our story focus this week is The runaway pancake. We have celebrated Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday. Everyone made their Lent promise this week.
