A day at the zoo

We couldn’t have picked a more beautiful day for our trip to the zoo.

Pancake Day!

Reception class had a pancake-themed day of activities at school to mark Shrove Tuesday. During the course of the day they wrote sentences about their favourite pancakes, talked about how pancakes are made and then ‘bought’ the ingredients they would need by counting out the correct money. In guided play the children made playdough pancakes, coloured in pancake pictures and read pancake stories.   

Visit to the Hindu Mandir

They were most welcoming and the children enjoyed finding out about the religion.

There was great excitement in the Reception class today as we transformed the Home Corner into our very own shop. To tie in with our work on recognising coins and counting money,  the children thoroughly enjoyed their role-play, filling their shopping bags with goodies and paying for them at the till.
