Enjoying the Sun in the EYFS Garden!

Enjoying the Sun in the EYFS Garden!

The children in Reception at Bierton Road had a fun-packed day as they got to enjoy the sunny weather in the garden! Staff have recently re-designed many of the areas in the garden and lots of new resources have been added. There was so much fun and excitement as the children had the opportunity to explore and develop all areas of their learning.

We can’t wait to continue our learning in the garden over the next couple of months!

 

Juggling Jim Visits Reception at Bierton Road

Juggling Jim Visits Reception at Bierton Road

The children in Reception were treated to a special visit from Juggling Jim! He wowed us all with his hilarious show full of magic and circus tricks – he even got the teachers involved in some messy fun! We were very lucky to spend time with Jim learning how to ride pedal-goes, catch flying bean bags and spin plates! It was so much fun!

We can’t wait to practise our newfound circus skills more over the next couple of weeks!

 

Science Week in Reception at Bierton Road

Science Week in Reception at Bierton Road

The children in Reception have had great fun this week as they have been super scientists! They have enjoyed making predictions and testing their ideas by taking part in lots of investigations and experiments.

Some of our favourite activities have included making bubbles, exploring magnetism, colour mixing and observing the changes that occur when celery and flowers are put in coloured water. The children also had the chance to learn about our planet using a globe and Google Earth, as well as blasting off in the space station role play area!

Our week was finished off perfectly when the children spotted a double rainbow in the garden!

 

Reception Writing Workshop at Bierton Road

Reception Writing Workshop at Bierton Road

We would like to say a big thank you to all of the parents and carers who attended the writing workshop this morning. It was fantastic to showcase all of the writing opportunities available to the children in school, whilst also sharing simple ways you can encourage your child to write at home. Hopefully you now have lots of ideas to support your child with their writing at home!

If you weren’t able to attend the workshop, you can view the presentation by clicking this link.

The video below shows you the pure sounds we teach in phonics. This will help your child with their reading and writing.

 

 

Thanks for you continued support.

World Book Day in Reception at Bierton Road

It has been a very exciting day in Reception at Bierton Road as we celebrated World Book Day! The children looked fantastic in their costumes and they had great fun showing them off during our fashion show! Throughout the day the children enjoyed reading their favourite stories and sharing their love of reading with each other.

We would like to say a big thank you to all of our parents for making such an effort with the costumes – they were brilliant!
