Welcome to Reception!
Ms Wilson, Mrs Loxton and Mrs John
What a lovely first half term we have had in Reception! The children have settled in brilliantly and are doing so well with the routines of school. We have really enjoyed getting to know them all and think we are in for a fabulous year!
In this second half of the Autumn term our topic is Light and Dark and we begin this by looking at 'What comes out at night?'
After our brilliant introduction to stars when the Planetarium came to visit, we will be looking at lights in the night sky, this will include stars, the moon, torches, street lights and of course fireworks! We will be trying out new painting techniques inspired by Jackson Pollock to make some night sky paintings.
you could have a try at home too!
We will also be looking at animals that come out at night, specifically hedgehogs and bats. We are very excited to be having a visit from the Warwickshire Hedgehog Rescue again this year. We will continuing to visit the woods each week as part of our learning, so please make sure you have wellies in school.
Our attention will also turn toward learning about the celebration of Christmas and practising for our Christmas production - you will be guaranteed to know all the song words!
Also look out for our letter about the trip to the Warwick Arts Centre to see We are Going on a Bear Hunt. This theatre visit is always a super trip and never disappoints. It is such a lovely introduction to live theatre productions for the children.
Thank you for the donations of cat food for Warwickshire Hedgehog Rescue. They were very grateful and we all loved meeting the little hedgehog.
Here is a link to their web page which is very informative.

This is such a lovely time of year to observe seasonal changes and to collect natural treasures. We would love some of these for our investigation area! Can you collect some conkers, acorns or golden leaves and bring them in to share with the class?
