Reception have been having a “crash”, “bang” crime fighting good time in our new superhero den! We dressed up in our capes and masks and set off an adventure to help save everyone! We were able to use our imagination to create different role play situations.img_1470img_1481 img_1479img_1469 img_1465 img_1484.

Reading Buddies

The Year 3 and Reception children have paired up to become reading buddies. Each week the Year 3 children come down to  Reception and carry out a variety of reading activities. The reading buddies read together and demonstrate how to handle books appropriately.  The children have commented on how well the sessions are going.

Imaan: Year 3 “I really enjoy coming down to read to the Reception children as I know it’s helping them with their learning.”

Tanya: Year 3 “I read some of the story and then I ask the children some questions about the story to make sure they understand.”

Sayeda: Year 3 “Buddy reading is great because I love reading.”

Hanzlah: Reception “Reading buddies read lots of stories to us.”

Riley: Reception “The reading buddies help us sound out.”

Reception were very keen to learn all about Ramadan.  They looked at a variety of Islamic books and now understand that fasting is a pillar of Islam and Muslims open their fast with a date. The reception children were very keen to discover how dates tasted!
