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' 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 wash our hands regularly, take our coats on and off, fill up our water bottles and go for lunch with our friends!
We have enjoyed new learning opportunities inside and outside.
Our class mascot is Rosen Bear.
In our first few weeks in Reception, we enjoyed learning about our class author Michael Rosen.
We have spent a lot of time talking about ourselves, our families, homes, pets and groups that we belong to. We have painted our portraits, made different types of houses from different materials and drawn and painted our safe and special places.
This term we have been learning about festivals and celebrations. We have been very busy ..... Halloween, Bonfire Night, Remembrance Day, Children In Need, Diwali and Christmas. We have talked about who celebrates, why and how. We have looked at what people eat, wear and where they go to celebrate.
We have used our fine motor skills to make and shape Diwas, cut out saltdough Christmas decorations, make fireworks our of "KNex". We have dressed up in the Diwali and Christmas house and selected our own props.
We have been creative with instruments and dance. We have learned how to work the CD player and have enjoyed expressing ourselves to a range of Christmas tunes.
We have really enjoyed learning this song about the very first Christmas. We have watched carefully and learned all the signs. We wanted to share it with you out in Forest School, after we had shared hot chocolate and a biscuit together.
We have had lots of fun this term, looking at number pattern, careful counting and measure - long and short, tall and short, heavy and light.
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!"
