Badgers class really enjoyed the Ugly Bug Ball. The costumes were fantastic, Miss Warren was especially impressed with the home made ones. Well Done!

We made and decorated our own clay minibeasts.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Queen's park to look for signs of spring. Our teachers were very impressed with how well behaved we were. As a treat for being so good, we were allowed to play a game of Duck, Duck, Goose. We can't wait for our next visit!

In Badger class we love our maths lessons and particularly enjoy learning new maths games we can play with our friends.

We have had an eggcellent time in Reception preparing for Easter. We enjoyed tasting hot cross buns, making Easter cards and going on Easter egg hunts.

Mondrian inspired art - In maths we have been learning about squares and rectangles. As part of our learning, we looked at the Dutch artist Piet Mondrian and made our own artwork inspired by him. Piet Mondrian is best known for his abstract paintings made from squares and rectangles. He often used primary colours and did not use a ruler to measure out the lines. Take a look at our AMAZING art!

Diwali - We have had great fun this week learning all about Diwali. We made our own Diya lamps, rangoli patterns and flower garlands. Ask us about what we can remember about Diwali and how it is celebrated.

This week we have been learning all about how and why we celebrate Bonfire night.

We had lots of fun making our own edible sparklers, firework pictures and we even made a pretend bonfire and Guy in our outdoor area.  


Here are some things the children learn about Bonfire night.  

"It's on the 5th November" Andia

"We celebrate with fireworks" Kaiah-Rose  

"If you not wear gloves, your hands will get burned" Chris  

"Guy Fawkes wanted to kill the King." Mariah  

"Guy Fawkes put golden powder under the Houses of Parliament." Maryann  

"The guards stop him and arrest him. They put him in jail." Xavier  

We have made a super start to our first year at Holy Rood. We have been busy making new friends and learning the school rules and routines. We have been having lots of fun exploring our new environment. Take a look at some of the things we have been doing since starting school.
