Our class teacher is Mrs Steeley.
Did you know we are called Rosen Class after the author Michael Rosen? We have really enjoyed reading some of his books and poems in class including 'We're Going On A Bear Hunt', 'Chocolate Cake' and 'Little Rabbit Foo Foo'.
We have had a great start to Reception, getting to know our school, classroom, and grown-ups. We have made lots of new friends too. We have also become much more independent, we get changed for PE and go for lunch with our friends!
Our class mascot is Rosen Bear. Rosen Bear gets to spend the weekend with our "Star of the Week".
In our first few weeks in Reception, we enjoyed learning about our class author Michael Rosen. We enjoyed bear themed activities and had fun retelling the story of "We're Going on a Bear Hunt" using the African Drums.
We have been learning about People Who Help Us. We thought about people who help us at home, at school and out and about. We also learnt about how to stay safe, which grown-ups we can ask for help if we have a problem and who would help us in an emergency.
We have had lots of visitors including Ray the Postman, the firefighters, the refuse collectors, a scientist and baby Charlotte and her mummy. There are more visitors still to come !
We have enjoyed caring for animals in our role play vets.
We enjoyed our Harvest Celebrations in Rosen Class. Thank you to all the children who brought in home baked bread and food for our harvest display and to share with our elderly neighbours.
We enjoyed singing our harvest songs and listening to "Harvest Samba" at register time. We talked about how food is grown.
We had fun with our parents and grandparents with a morning of harvest activities in our class. We performed our "Big Red Combine Harvester" song and then were able to choose from lots of different creative activities including conker rolling, making bread and jam sandwiches, drawing and describing our favourite foods, a "BIG PAINT", counting activities with conkers and cones and "guess the mystery vegetable" game.
We have had a lot of fun learning about Diwali and how it is celebrated. We used our creative skills to make clay divas, chalk rangoli patterns and mehandi patterns. We acted out the sory of Diwali in our class and some children worked together to make a 10 headed demon king mask. We tried some indian food in our circle time.
We enjoyed showing our work to our parents in our Diwali assembly and performing our special songs. We shone torches and held lights and some of us wore special clothes.
Our 2017 Ofsted inspection commented - that we still provide good quality education & a stimulating & caring environment. Individual needs are well met & children quickly grow in confidence. There is a positive culture for safeguarding & pupils said that they feel happy & settled in school.
"I am amazing. Together we are magnificent!"
