Reception B – “The Gruffalo” writing and pictures

“The Gruffalo” is a wonderful story that we in Reception B have really enjoyed.

It has really captured our imagination and we have developed a wide range of descriptive vocabulary.

How would you describe the Gruffalo? Look at the words we have used……….purple prickles, orange eyes, black tongue.

…and what about the mouse?

We have done some amazing writing, we have used a range of vocabulary and we were able to write our own words and sentences using our knowledge of letter sounds.

 Look at our fantastic display!

We are so proud of our work!

Here is the  video we made about the Gruffalo. It was so much fun!

Pre 2 Little Bears – Dinosaur Dinner – Do you like biscuits…………..?

Continuing with the story “Dinosaur Dinner”, we decorated some dinosaur-shaped biscuits  with icing sugar and sprinkles.

First, we mixed the icing sugar with water and observed it changing from a powder to a liquid. That’s science!














After mixing it, we spread the icing sugar on our biscuits with a small spoon. It took a lot of skill to spread it, as it is quite sticky!! Look at the concentration!Finally, we decorated our biscuits with coloured sprinkles.






And what do you think we did next…………? All gone!

Reception A – Yoga and Mindfulness

In Reception A we have been promoting mindfulness and how we look after ourselves in body and mind!

We have been looking at yoga postures and mindfulness exercises to make our classroom a calmer place. Here are just some of the postures that you can try!

The snake                                                                                                            The whale







                                                                                                                                              The hedgehog




                                                                       The boat with a partner       



The owl




We wrote about all the animals and we made butterflies too!

In this video we tell an African Adventure Story using yoga positions.


We live in a busy world and are in a rush, just to get through the day. Mindfulness is about staying connected to the present moment. It teaches us to cope with new challenges and helps us look at ways to reach our goals. 

Another yoga video to practice your moves……….

Relax, be focused, be happy!
