Making bird feeders

In Reception, we have enjoyed a super start to our ‘All Creatures Great & Small’ topic! We have created handprint zoo animals and have spent an afternoon creating bird cakes ready to hang in our outdoor area. We really hope they give us chance to spot lots of springtime birds!

Here we are when the bird cakes were a work in progress…

The Lighthouse Keeper

This week, Reception have been inspired by The Lighthouse Keeper book series. One of our craft challenges this week was to create a lighthouse using cardboard tubes. We looked closely at images to ensure we included the red and white stripes!

It’s all about being a good friend in Reception .

Rainbow Fish created on the computer.

We wrote all about what a good friend does.

This week, along with Rainbow Fish, we have been looking at what a good friend is and how to be a good friend. The children came up with lots of super ideas!

The children also did lots of creative and ICT work around Rainbow Fish. A fantastic week’s learning was had by all.

Our trip to Attenborough Nature Reserve.

On Wednesday we all went to Attenborough Nature Reserve. It was great fun. The children fed the waterfowl and enjoyed a squelchy walk through the woods where they then created their own musical instruments. On returning to school the children had fun using different ingredients to make a bird feeder to take home with them.

“It was fantastic .” Gurshaan.

“It was so muddy in the woods!” Taha .

“Awesome.” Yousef.

Celebrating the start of Chinese New Year.


It’s the year of the Rooster. On Monday, all the Reception children gathered together to learn about Chinese New Year. Katherine was able to explain what her family had done over the weekend to start welcoming in the new year. The children listened to the story of the Jade Emperor, and how each Chinese year was named after different animals. They had a go at using chop sticks, painting Chinese numbers, re-telling the story and made roosters. Great fun was had by all.

Yousef, “We looked for birds like big birds and small birds.”

Wania “We have found a robin and a black bird a crow.”

Aman “We saw magpies.”

Grace “I liked using the binoculars.”

William H “I loved doing the bird watch, I just love birds.”

“We all loved bird watch.” Said Katherine .
