Week 5


 Tynemouth Aquarium

Reception enjoyed their visit to Tynemouth aquarium. We began with a small workshop where we learned about different rockpool creatures.  The children enjoyed looking at and had a feel of a starfish, sea urchin and anemone.  We then had time to explore the aquarium ourselves and were thrilled to find lots of different types of fish and creatures, including stingrays, seals and sharks! The children loved looking at all the different types of fish and particularly enjoyed going through the ocean tunnel.

Week 3



Summer has arrived in Reception!  This week we have been talking about the changing of the season and spotting signs of Summer.  Due to the weather being so warm we have also been learning about the importance of keeping ourselves safe in the sunshine including wearing a sun hat, drinking lots of water and putting sun cream on.


This term Mrs Williams will be delivering cycle coaching in our Reception class.  The children loved their first session using a balance bike and lifting their feet. 

Big Me Day

    Bee Awareness Day

Reception made bee crafts and enjoyed learning facts.  Here are some of our favourites:

  • Bees look out for each other and work together like one big family 
  • They are hard working and most live in a hive. 
  • Without bees there would be no plants. 
  • They collect pollen using baskets on their legs.
  • Bee's have 6 legs and 5 eyes.
  • They have a long tongue to suck up nectar.

Week 2



This week the children have been introduced to rekenreks in maths. Rekenreks are similar to an abacus and we have been learning how to use them.
We know that instead of counting each bead across, we can subitise (instantly look at a number of objects and recognise how many there) and move a number across at the same time.  We have been practising this subitising by putting our finger in the correct place and moving the beads across together. We can confidently do this and have achieved and demonstrated this in just a couple of lessons!
