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.

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.

Please arrive in good time to ensure you get a seat.

Up above and down below!

 

Our new topic is ‘Up above and down below!’ To introduce our new topic we visited Greenwich Park and river.  We explored our senses in different environments – at the top of the hill (up above) and deep within the foot tunnel (down below).

We climbed up the bus stairs, and sat on the top deck of the bus.
