Reception’s Memorable Event! Superhero Day!

Today is Superhero Day!

First we introduced ourselves as superheroes and told each other what our super powers were.

Then we received a letter from Spiderman which had been written in invisible ink! It read…. Today we are going on a rocket to the Planet Pea to get the superheroes their powers back!

First we ate some super food (raisins).

Then we had to line up with our passports (you can’t get into Planet Pea without one!)

After that we sang the song ‘Let’s Go Superheroes’!

We had to show our passports and get them stamped before we entered the Planet Pea!

Next we moved around space slowly in, on, under and over the apparatus.

Then we collected a special stone that helped us breathe in space and then we  entered the rocket.

We counted down 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 …Blast off!

We zoomed into space and swapped our special stone for a pea blaster (bean bag)!

Then we blasted Evil Pea and he was defeated!

We entered a dark tent so we could use the special light to get back our superpowers!

Finally, we all came back to Planet Earth!

What a fun adventure we had!

Do you think Evil Pea was really evil? Why? Why not?

Our Superhero Visitors – The Paramedics

We are learning all about Superheroes!

We had real life superheroes who came to visit us.

Paramedics save people everyday and help them when they are not feeling well or if they have had an accident.

What does a superhero do?

Has a paramedic ever helped you? How?

Can you remember the special equipment a paramedic carries with them?

We asked them some very interesting questions! What would you ask a paramedic?

Have a look at our photos from the day.

Can you tell your parent/carer what is happening in each picture?

Looking Up, Looking Down – Our Christmas Performance!

This half-term our topic has been ‘Up Above and Down Below’.  We have been reading stories and learning about things that we see up in the sky and under the sea.  Our Christmas show told the story of all the learning we have been doing.

 

Some children had lost their friends, and so decided to look ‘up above’ and ‘down below’ for them.
They looked up and spotted some astronauts blasting into space, but they could not see their friends.
The astronauts made friends with some aliens.
The children could see all the planets of the solar system.
Next, the children looked down and spotted sharks, clown fish and jellyfish swimming below the surface of the ocean. However, they still couldn’t see their friends.
After that, the children spotted someone stuck in a chimney!

 

 

 

 

 

It was Santa!
Then, they saw some children acting out the Nativity story.
Finally, the children spotted a present. What could be inside? What a surprise – the children had finally found their friends!
The fabulous cast of our show!

Our Visit to Greenwich Observatory.

This half term we have a new topic, ‘Up Above and Down Below’.  We visited Greenwich Observatory to explore the topic.  Our class friends, Harry Hornbill and Monkey, had told us they would meet us there!

Waiting for the bus.
On our way to the observatory.

We received a letter from Harry Hornbill. He had got lost on his way to the observatory.

We couldn’t spot Harry Hornbill, but we did find Monkey!

We explored the galleries. We tried to find out some of the answers to our questions about space.

We watched a show in the planetarium. It was about a Teddy who went in search of the Great Big Bear in the Sky.

We went down below the River Thames to look for Harry Hornbill. He wasn’t there, but we found some of his feathers, and a note telling us he would meet us back at school.
We rode home ‘up above’ on the top deck of the bus.

We enjoyed our time in Greenwich learning about Space, and observing our surroundings from ‘up above’ and ‘down below’.  Thank you to all of the parents who helped us have a fantastic day!

 

 

 

Our visit to the park!

We received a letter from Mummy and Daddy Bear telling us to meet them at the park to have some fun!

We talked about how we could stay safe on our visit.  We decided we needed to walk along the pavement with the help of some of our parents.  We held hands and wore bright jackets so we could be seen.IMG_0522IMG_0520

We were brilliant at walking safely and listening to our adults! We arrived safely at the park, ready for lots of fun.  We played on the equipment and took turns doing parachute games.

We joined the three bears for a snack and a story, before playing some more games and heading back to school.

We had a fantastic time on our first educational visit in Reception. A big thank you to all the parents who helped us on the day!
