Easter Break

Hello everyone! I’ve really missed teaching you all over the last few weeks. It’s the Easter Holidays now, but it doesn’t mean you can’t stay active.

You can continue with the Joe Wicks workouts on his YouTube channel, (I will keep doing them too!), or you can redo some of the other activities that I have set over the last couple of weeks. You might have found other ways to keep yourselves moving too, which is wonderful. Keep those going if you can! Remember to keep drinking lots of water, and getting plenty of fruits and vegetables into your diet so that you can continue to stay healthy.

Stay safe and enjoy the break.
Miss Cox

Week beginning Monday 30th March

Well done to everyone who managed to complete a challenge every day last week. If you managed to complete all of Joe Wicks videos, amazing effort as I know he worked you all very hard. If you managed to complete my shorter challenges, again, super effort to make sure you are keeping moving everyday. You are all Sports Stars! Joe Wicks is continuing his live challenges so here is a reminder of the link to his YouTube channel. https://www.youtube.com/user/thebodycoach1 Keep moving everyone, you are all doing a wonderful job!

Remember, keeping healthy isn’t just about exercise, but about your diet too. Make sure you are thinking about what you are eating and drinking. Remember to get your 5 a day of fruit and vegetables and drink plenty of water to keep you hydrated. You will feel so much better for it! As a side challenge, maybe you could take a photo or draw a picture of a healthy meal you have had this week and share it in your class padlet. It would be a good opportunity to share ideas with each other, to find out what you like and don’t like. Maybe you might come across a healthy food that you have not tried before that you could try.
Stay safe everyone, keep washing your hands and keep moving!

Our 30 Things Challenge

Our 30 Things Challenge is a seven year endeavour to be completed by pupils during their time with us. We have worked with children, parents, staff and governors to identify our own twenty-five tasks and combined it with five selected by our academy trust, which will be common to all children attending a LAAT school.

We have now turned these ideas into our very own “My 30 Things Passport”, which will be updated as each challenge is completed. We feel sure that you will agree that in order to meet their thirty challenges the children will be kept busy over their seven years with us!

For those children further up the school, or who join us later on in their school journey, we recognise that it may not be possible to meet all thirty before they leave us but we will endeavour to meet as many as possible in the time we have available.

Santa Visit 5 December

We took Scout and Sparkles (our elf) to see Santa. We were so excited for our coach ride to Baytree’s Winter Wonderland. We had a photograph taken as an elf, walked through the Winter Wonderland and even had a sleigh ride before meeting Father Christmas. Father Christmas spoke with everyone. He asked us to make sure we were all very good. He told us to go to bed early on Christmas Eve and we just go straight to sleep! He said he likes mince pies and cookies, he also likes sausage rolls - but they must be from Greggs!

A Frosty Morning

This morning when we arrived at school we noticed that the field and trim trail were covering in frost. So, we asked Mrs Adie if we could miss assembly to go and play in the frost before it melted away. Mrs Adie said YES!

We had great fun using our hands to melt shapes into objects, we even tried to write our names! We also noticed that if we held a frosty leaf in our hands we could turn it back to a normal leaf!!!

Firework Painting 6 November

On Tuesday the children had the task of making a Firework painting with Miss Markillie. So, we sent Miss Markillie outside with a really big piece of black paper, paint brushes and paint.

We are really happy with what the children produced. It looks ace! They even stayed quite clean, and the windows behind the children didn't get too much paint on them either.

Celebrating Diwali 30 October

Reception have been working hard in the classroom this week finding out about Diwali. We even showed the whole school the Diva Lamps, Rangoli Patterns and Lanterns what we had made during collective worship.

Celebrating Autumn

Little Daffodils 29 October

As part of their centenary celebrations, Taylors Bulbs have launched a nationwide campaign to get children planting bulbs this October. As part of The ‘Little Daffodils’ initiative Baytree Garden Centre visited us on Wednesday to deliver pots, bulbs and compost. We were so pleased to be able to give the children the opportunity to learn more about nature and grow their own flowers. It would be wonderful to see some pictures once the daffodils have bloomed.

Using the balance bikes 17 October

The Toast Table 16 October

Today we introduced the toast table to the class. After talking about how the toaster works and how to keep safe we let the children have a slice or two if they wanted. We encouraged the children to be as independent as they could and they were all brilliant at spreading their butter, jam or marmalade. They even had to wash up afterwards.

Superhero Day 9 October

Magic potions, fruit kebabs, den building, target blaster and biscuit decorating were challenges the Superheroes needed to complete. We ate a picnic lunch in the classroom.

Mrs Porter presented us with special certificates in the hall this morning.

Well done Super Reception!

A Fire Engine came to visit

On Monday 7th October,  4 Fire Fighters from Spalding Fire Station came to visit Reception. The children thought of lots of questions to ask before the visit and were very polite when asking them to the Fire Fighters.  After we had spoke to the Fire Fighter’s the children got to go outside and inspect the Fire Engine. All the children got a tour of the equipment on the engine and again asked lots of very sensible questions.They all then got to sit in the Fire Engine and two children got the chance to flash the lights and sound the siren.
