This week Reception went to the farm. We loved looking at all of the animals. we went in search of ‘The Little Red Hen.’ We found her in a run. We had a conversation about what hens look like and their feathers. We saw two different types of hens and we looked at the differences between them.
‘I loved the farm’ said Heba
‘Why do hens have feathers?’ asked Ishaq
‘How do ducks swim?’ asked Zaynah
This week we have been learning the song ‘Doggie Doggie Where’s Your Bone’
We learnt the different parts of the song and have really enjoyed singing by ourselves front of the whole class.
In Reception this week we have been learning the song ‘What shall we play in the children’s band?’
We have been learning the names of new musical instruments and using them to keep the beat.
What would you like to play in our children’s band?
We have been reading the story of Goldilocks. We made our own delicious porridge by adding some new ingredients. “The best porridge ever” said Umar. “I like the white chocolate” said Aila.
“It’s yummy” said Suleiman. “It’s good- me gusta!” said Yaqoob.
Now we will be writing about how we made our porridge and next week we are going to make a disgusting porridge instead!!
At Thomas Buxton we have been doing Helicopter Stories with the children. This is where a child tells a story and the adult scribes it word for word. The children then gather around a stage and the stories are then acted out. We are brilliant actors in Reception.
Here are a couple of our amazing stories
Ayra – France Class
Once upon a time there was a little girl called Matilda and a little girl called Sophie. It was time to go home. They played with their friends. All her friends were having a disco because it was Matilda’s birthday.

Once upon a time there was a dragon. Then the bear was making some footprints. The dragon followed the footprints then the dragon saw the bear. He opened his mouth and breathed, then fire came out. Then a monster came, then the dragon went to the house and put the fire on. The house went down then the monster came inside the house and ate the dragon. Then that’s the end.
