How the time has flown! RHG it has been an absolute pleasure to teach all of you this year. You’ve brightened every single day with your endless smiles and laughter! You will always hold a very special place in my heart ❤️
I would also like to say a big thank you to all the grown-ups at home! It’s been a very strange year and we couldn’t have done it without your continued support. You’ve been the best home teachers over this year.
I have no doubts that you are going to absolutely blow Miss Webster and Mrs Southall away with your amazing personalities, and how hard you will hopefully continue to work.
I hope you all have the best summer, you deserve it! Please keep in touch and I’ll see you all in September.
On Thursday it was the best day of the year– Sports Day! We dressed up in our team colours and tried our best to win the races. These included the egg and spoon race, a relay race, a water race, throwing beanbags, and seeing who could jump the furthest! It was such good fun– just look at those massive smiles!
The final results for Reception were… 1st place Green team, 2nd place Red team, 3rd place Yellow team, and 4th place Blue team. Well done everybody!
On Friday we learnt all about the skill of ‘Hapa Zome’, a Japanese craft translated loosely as ‘flower pounding’.
We used flower petals and leaves to create patterns on pieces of fabric. We then folded the fabric in half and gave them a thorough bashing with a hammer! This caused all the juices to come out of the flowers and leaves, leaving a colourful pattern on the fabric.
Today we had an art workshop, all about nature. We learnt a very important new word- texture. We talked about the textures of lots of different materials, and how to create this on paper!
There were three stations: creating texture using paint, doing leaf rubbings, and creating magic patterns using wax crayons and watercolours.
The workshop leader was very pleased with everyone’s work. She commented on how lovely it was to see everyone’s creativity and willingness to have a go at every activity. It made me so proud to hear such lovely comments about our class!
We had a wonderful drum workshop, all about Sammy the Spider! Sammy helped us with the rhythms of the session, as we played our instruments to the beat of his name. We also met some of Sammy’s friends along the way, including Charlie the Camel, and the Giraffopotamus!
