After a week of reading ‘Superworm’, we decided to make our own wormery. We wrote instructions and were able to follow them in order to make it. All we needed next were worms!
This morning Reception went on a bug hunt around the school grounds as part of their new topic ‘Ugly Bug Ball’. We found many insects including a spider, beetle, snail, slug, worms, ants and woodlouse. Most of these were in our garden area, lifting up plant pots and old stones. We used the bug pots and magnifying glasses to look at them closely before releasing them back to their habitat.
Reception and Year 1 had a fun filled last day of term. We went on an Easter egg hunt around the school, finding eggs with actions on for us to complete. Pretending to be a chicken was by far our favourite!
This morning the lovely Caroline from Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue came to visit us. She taught us how to stay safe and what to do in the event of a fire. We enjoyed dressing up as firefighters and listening to the stories she told to support our understanding.
Reception enjoyed exploring the apparatus for the first time in PE. They demonstrated superb balancing skills and were able to think of alternative ways of travelling on the equipment.
'Today, Kingsley class predicted what would happen when we poured ice onto a piece of string and some ice. We found that the salt made the ice sticky. Look at how the ice became stuck to the string.
Redgrave and Kingsley had lots of fun at their Christmas Party. Look at our amazing dance moves!

Reception wrapped up warm and seized the moment to go on a hunt for signs of winter this morning. We used lots of rich vocabulary to describe what we found and even conducted our own ice melting experiment upon our return to the warmth
Over the past few weeks Reception have been celebrating and remembering special people and times of the year. Many of us have discovered our creative flair and experimented with new mediums.
Reception have been learning about 2D shapes. We went on a shape hunt around the school to see what 2D shapes we could find in our environment. What shapes can you see?
In PE, Reception have been exploring the different shapes their body can make. We had tall, flat, wide and long shapes. We even worked with a partner to create new shapes together. There was a lot of creativity and some very good balancing on display
On Friday morning Reception found out how dirty their hands really are. Using the hand washing kit we could see the germs on our hands and toys and how easily these can spread. We learnt how to wash our hands properly in a bid to prevent the spread of those pesky germs.

Reception have made a super start to Holbrook! Here are just a few pictures of the things we have been up to and exploring in our first few weeks.
This week Reception had their first PE lesson. We learnt how to find a space and moved around the hall in different ways whilst listening to instructions. Changing was a success, with no items of clothing lost . . . so far!
