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 get changed for PE, fill up our water bottles 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.
Our first role play was a shoe shop. We tried on different pairs of shoes and talked about large and small, big and little. We wrote down the numbers we saw inside shoes. We measured our feet.
We enjoyed our Harvest Celebrations in Rosen Class. Thank you to all the children who brought in 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 our favourite foods and drew them. We remembered to be thankful for our food. We enjoyed sharing the harvest loaf made by the kitchen staff.
In maths, we counted the items in our harvest baskets and wrote the numbers down.
We are having a busy time in our message centre making marks. We have been pirates and made our own maps, we have been cave men and drawn on cave walls, we have written on post it notes, passed notes under doors, made letters, wrote messages in a bottle and made our own drawings.
We have been looking at how our environment is changing around us. We have talked about seeds and nuts, looked at things that are decaying and growing old and collected pine cones, conkers and leaves for our Autumn Table.
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 cardboard boxes, painted our homes and made collages of our pets.
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!"
