On Monday we were visited by a circus performer called Obby.

He knew lots of tricks and circus skills.

His performance made us all say “Gosh” and “Wow!”

We asked Obby lots of questions. We found out that he loves learning new things. He started learning tricks when he was just 6 years old. Also, he learns his tricks by watching other people or videos.

At the end of the day some children performed the skills Obby had taught us.

A visit to the Wildlife Centre

 

This half term our topic is Mother Earth.  We visited Peckham Wildlife Centre to find out about the living things we share the earth with.

IMG_0251We pretended to be trees. We couldn’t move because our legs were roots which grew into the ground. We had to reach and collect raindrops. If we collected too much or too little water we would not grow well. Trees need just the right amount of water to grow.

Real Life Superheroes

To end our topic ‘Heroes and Villains’ we were visited by some real life superheroes.  We asked them lots of questions about their jobs.

IMG_0219We found out that the police help to keep us safe.  They wear a special uniform that protects them.  They have gadgets like radios and handcuffs that help them to do their job.  They told us that boys and girls can grow up to be in the police.  They also told us that to be in the police we have to do good listening at school.

IMG_0225IMG_0228Tess and Jackie, our cleaners, help to keep our classroom tidy.  They also help to keep us safe during our lunchtime.  We can help them by tidying away our belongings, and remembering to put the lids back on our pens.

Thank you to the real life superheroes for visiting Reception T!

What’s going on?

The photos from the Reception end of year performance are up!

We read The Way Back Home by Oliver Jeffers as part of our Up Above and Down Below topic. It inspired us to create our show entitled What’s going on? In the book, a boy makes friends with an alien. We imagined what would happen if an alien visited Earth at winter time.
