Hello and welcome to Reception 2's page.
This last half term is set to be a busy one. We have many lovely activities planned so don't forget to ask your child what they have been up to.
We would like to remind you to look at your child's learning journal on www.eexat.com
If you have anything that you can share, please up load it as we love to see what children do at home.
The children have learnt many different techniques to aid their reading. We have put stickers in their reading diaries to help you encourage them use those techniques in their reading. Some of those techniques are

We are reading a fantastic and extremely funny story 'Supertato' and are loving learning all about how Supertato helps to save the vegetables from the Evil Pea! As part of this topic we will be mashing the evil peas, creating super hero masks and capes, writing shopping lists, creating play dough vegetables, printing with vegetables, creating wanted posters, writing comic strips and much, much more.
We will also be visiting the local Nisa shop with our shopping lists to buy vegetables so that we can make our very own vegetable soup!
Here are some photos of what we are getting up to...
(and make sure you keep an eye out for escapeas!
We had so much fun visiting the local Nisa shop to buy some vegetables which we are going to use to make some vegetable soup. We wrote our own shopping list after reading the story Supertato and took it with us to the shop so we would remember what to buy.The children enjoyed selecting the vegetables and paying for the food.
We must say a big thank you to the Manager at Nisa for giving us free slush drinks to cool us down after our sunny walk.
We received a bit of a surprise when we came to school and found a mysterious hole in the floor of the play ground! Mr Leigh had cordoned the area off for our safety but we were very curious about who (or what) might have made the hole and where it might lead! We spent lots of time discussing our ideas and each came up with our own story setting for 'the bottom of the hole' and thought about who/ what we might meet and what adventures we might have there. We are enjoying lots of activities linked to the process of creating a story such as, role play, small world, puppet theatre, creating story setting trays in the creative area, creating story maps and much more with the hope of writing our fantastic stories to share with you on our 'Story showcase.' Have a look below at the mysterious 'hole' and some of the things we have been getting up to...
