As part of our Chinese New Year Celebrations, our wonderful Dragon came to life as we created a dance to perform to the children in our nursery.

Kung Hei Fat Choy!

Reception class joined with the rest of the school to support the NSPCC's Number Day fundraiser.

The children dressed up, wearing numbers on their clothes and there were some really fantastic outfits. 

We had great fun using our counting skills to create Number posters for our classroom.

Yesterday, the cuddly toys came to school too.The children earned their 100 marbles in the jar. 

They can earn marbles for being great in lots of different situations, for example, going to assembly sensibly; everyone looking and listening during carpet times or 100% attendance. 

I wonder what they will choose as their reward, next time? 
Well done everyone!

The children have loved looking at our montage of Verona and images from Romeo and Juliet as they enter our Key Stage area.  We have been looking at mystery objects that arrived in a special trunk and wondering what they are and who they might belong to.  They had really good ideas and in groups we then went on to think about how we could describe Romeo and Juliet. 

Cooking this term has also been great fun and very tasty. We thought about food that you might eat in Italy and that Romeo and Juliet may have also eaten. We hope that the children will have a try at home with their families, now that they know how to make really great pizza with healthy option toppings.

We have been exploring how people might show their feelings when they meet someone they like or someone they dislike. 

We explored how we greeted each other. How did our faces look, change? How did our bodies move or change? 

We linked this to how family members or friends of The Capulet and Montague families may have felt when they met each other, maybe in the street or in the marketplace. 

" Do you bite your thumb at me, sir?" The children's first introduction to the text and language of Shakespeare!
