Reception enjoyed a visit from our Yr6 digital leaders as part of our coding week! The leaders showed us how to complete a simple programme using the iPads! In doing so we created some beautiful patterns that included spirals, butterflies and even fireworks! It is safe to say that our session was tech-tactic! We look forward to using the iPads during our time in Reception! 
The Early Years enjoyed an afternoon of fun activities that helped to raise awareness of Fire Safety. We enjoyed watching video clips of Fireman Sam's safety tips on Bonfire Night and how to stay safe around fire and fireworks. We discussed this in depth and shared what safety tips we learned. Then, some of our peers who are 5 years old used sparklers to learn how to hold them safely- wow, what risk takers! We all enjoyed gathering around a bonfire and staying safe around an open flame plus making s'mores with marshmallows and biscuits. We also created our own firework pictures and edible sparklers! We were very lucky to have the help from our Yr5 buddies! 
In Reception we believe a healthy body is just as important as a healthy mind! We aim to take extra special care of both! Please take a look at the activities we have been participating in!
