We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Reception at Springfield and we look forward to an exciting and successful year together.

We have had such a lovely, lovely day together today. Running, playing in the garden and even a trip from the ice cream van!! The children certainly brought their smiles, as requested and we hope they have had a day that they will remember. 

We hope to see you all again soon, but in the meantime, please keep us updated with your activities on Tapestry. But most of all, please stay safe, look after each other and enjoy some time with your beautiful children.

Mystery Reader

Our latest Mystery Reader was William's Dad who read Dustbin Dad; which the children found very funny. Remember -

"Never leave food where your father can grab it. He's likely to start up a scrap-eating habit. Then he, too, might suffer a similar fate-unless you eat ALL of the food on your plate!"

Pancake Day Fun!

We enjoyed some pancake fun on Tuesday, learning all about Shrove Tuesday and the traditions behind the celebration. We discussed the ingredients needed to make a pancake and also what favourite toppings the children would be having on theirs at home. We listened carefully to the 'Mr Wolf's Pancakes' story and even retold it in our role play area. For some it had an unexpected ending! During the afternoon each child had the chance to visit the snack table to try a pancake. They chose either sugar and lemon or syrup or jam for their topping. Every child had at least a nibble, some demolishing the whole lot!! If you and your families celebrated “Pancake Day” at home, we would love to see some of your flippin’ moments shared on Tapestry.

Happy New Year!

We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and are ready for the exciting Spring term ahead. 

The children returned to school full of beans, excited to tell us all about their Christmas holidays. We loved hearing about all the places they had visited and of course all the gifts they received from Father Christmas. We would like to thank you for all our lovely cards and generous gifts - we are very lucky teachers!

 

Following on from our visitors before Christmas, where we learnt about Christmas celebrations in other countries around the world. Reception celebrated ‘Three Kings' Day’, a traditional Spanish celebration. The children learnt about how it took the kings until the 6th of January to reach Bethlehem to visit baby Jesus and about other Spanish traditions, such as Roscon de Reyes (Kings' cake). The children really enjoyed making crowns and decorating their very own Kings' cake (a donut with sweets on top).

More Christmas Around the World...

Teresa's Mummy came into school to talk to us about Christmas in Italy.  We loved hearing about the different cakes to eat, especially pandora and panettone.  It was interesting to hear that all the towns in Italy have a life size nativity village which you can walk around. All families on 24th December go to church for a midnight service, even little children and babies.

We were also fascinated to hear that on the 5th January, an old lady on a broomstick, called La Befana, visits the children and brings them sweets if they have been good or a piece of coal if they haven't behaved themselves!

Buon Natale!

After we learned about the Nativity Story and Advent, we began to talk about how countries around the world celebrate Christmas differently.

 

Max's Mummy came in to talk to us about how Christmas is celebrated in Sweden. We learned about receiving presents on Christmas Eve from Santa Claus himself, known as Tomten, and having a feast on the evening of Christmas Day.  We also heard about the celebration of Santa Lucia on 13th December and tasty kanelbullar (cinnamon swirls) that are enjoyed.

 

Marco's Mummy came in to talk about Christmas celebrations in Spain where Epiphany is very important. We learned how Spanish people receive a visit from Papa Noel on Christmas Eve. Then Children and families in Spain attend a special parade on 6th January and celebrate the arrival of the Wise Men. We heard how children leave their shoes out and receive presents from the Wise Men as well as having a delicious ring-shaped cake to eat called Rosca de Reyes representing the Wise Men's search for Jesus. If you find the hidden toy King in the cake, you are King or Queen for the day!

We are now learning tricky red words. These words cannot be sounded out.  We often use the statement ‘you can’t Fred a red’ (you cannot Fred talk (sound out) a red word).  These words need to be learnt by sight.  The children will use the letter pattern and initial sound to help them recall the word.  They are common words we use everyday. Please practise the new red words we send home each week. Thank you for your continued support.

Odd Socks Day during Anti Bullying Week

We have been especially thinking about being kind and how to be a good friend this week.

On Tuesday the children came to school wearing odd socks to show that it’s ok to be different and how we should be proud of who we are. We enjoyed lots of activities in class, such as pairing up odd socks, designing their own odd socks, pegging up odd socks on a washing line.

We also had a special surprise, a video message from CBeebies presenter Andy from Andy and the Odds socks, for all the children at Springfield. He told us how important it is to be kind to each other and reminded Mrs Chard to wear her odd socks too! 

Thank you for supporting such an important week in school.

We love to read!

We have a wide range of story books in our Reception classrooms of both traditional, popular and new authors.  We also visit the school library every week which is well stocked with high quality stories and non-fiction books for the children to choose from.

 

If you would like an idea of appropriate high quality stories to share with your children at home, we have attached a list below as a starting point.

School Nurse Visit
Today, the School Nurse came into Reception and talked to us about the importance of brushing our teeth and washing our hands. She talked about when we should wash our hands and we learned how we should be washing them to keep those germs at bay! Look out for the leaflets in your child's book bag. Maybe your children could show you how we wash our hands properly!

Road Safety

We have enjoyed having visitors from 'GIST' to talk about the important message of road safety.  We loved the talk from Paul and Pete and what a brilliant experience being able to sit in the drivers seat!

 

...and listen to our road safety reminder!
