What's going on in Goldcrest Class 2020/21?

W.B 12th October . Kitchen Disco week.

What a fun week we have had! We have read, chanted, made musical instruments of our own and used saucepans to make a drumming work shop. We have danced and boogied and written a poem together. We have drawn funky fruit and we have counted and matched numbers of fruit . We have "shaken our pips" and "wiggled our hips" and done the conga many times.  We have even painted with kitchen utensils like a potato masher and a whisk .What fun!

October 2nd We have had fun this week. Painting, ordering, playing, writing in role and mixing outside. The gingerbread man continues to be a focus and we have played with the salt dough biscuits that we made (we are finding raisins everywhere!) The children innovated a lovely story - we have sent it home to share. Our first wet playtime too.....


Have a lovely weekend, rest and relax.

Family Learning 1st Oct 2020

What are we learning about in Goldcrest Class?

First week and so impressed with our new children. Coming into school, new faces, new places! This week we have been discovering our learning spaces together and observing the children in their play. We have seen new friendships forming and high engagement in self-chosen learning. We have eaten lunch in our dining room. We are learning the routines of collecting our food and clearing away afterwards. Well done!

Family Learning 11th September. Each week we will send home some suggested tasks to support classroom learning. Tasks are voluntary and we seek to make them playful and fun! This year particularly it will be an opportunity to share what we have been working on in school and extend home/school links. Please send your Family Learning book back into school on a Wednesday. Thank you.

Welcome to another new year in Reception! 

We are so excited to be starting in Goldcrest and we have had a fun few days exploring our new classroom.

We are looking forward to getting to know each other and to begin our new learning journey.

Goldcrest have enjoyed a gingerbread man themed week. We even made and ate our own gingerbread biscuits out in the meadow. 
Well! What  a lovely first term we have had. We have made lots of new friends , we have worked together to explore different stories and ideas, , we have enjoyed learning new sounds and digraphs in Phonics and we have been discovering different areas of learning inside and outside our classroom. We have finished with our Nativity story which we performed to all our grown ups. We have had so much fun!

We have had fun exploring The scarecrows Wedding and castles and dragons.
