Superfoods week

This week we have been learning about ‘super foods’ as part of our Heroes and Villains topic. Earlier today, we were visited by Jo Travers who is a nutritionist as well as a parent of a child in our class. We talked about why food is important in helping us to grow, stay healthy and become ‘super’ learners. We discussed our favourite foods and learnt about ‘everyday foods’ and ‘sometimes foods’.

Later on, Jo helped us to create healthy plates that included vegetables, carbohydrates and proteins.

We got hands on as we explored, touched and tasted foods with different textures. We used the words ‘same’ and ‘different’, and adjectives like ‘crunchy’ and ‘slippery’ as we talked about them.

We will be thinking about our ‘super foods’ learning when we eat our lunches in school each day.

Educational visit to Telegraph Hill Park

Last week both Reception classes went on an educational visit to Telegraph Hill Park to round off our topic Up above and down below. We walked up a steep hill to the upper park, where we looked at London from ‘up above.’

We then walked around the lower park and looked at the pond ‘down below’. Go to Reception B’s blog to find out more!

The Christmas Star

On Monday 8th December, we performed our Nativity production “The Christmas Star” with our friends from Reception B. We had been practising our singing, acting and dancing for weeks and we tried our very best. We are so proud of the final performance. Thank you to everyone who came along to support us.
