Week Commencing 18th May 2020

Hello Reception! 

 

We hope you are all still enjoying the weather and had fun looking for butterflies outside in your garden or on your daily walks.  

 

Are you keeping active and keeping fit?  What is your favourite sport and what activity do you enjoy doing that gets your heart beating and is making your bodies fit and healthy? Perhaps you can make up some assault courses in your garden and have a family sports event.  

 

This week we have a new topic-Growing! At this time of year there are so many things that are growing. You have already learned about how caterpillars grow into butterflies, so now you could think about other things that grow and change. Have any of you seen any frog spawn? This week you can learn about how frogs grow. You could have a go at growing your own plants and vegetables especially carrots from the carrot tops we don’t use. Send us some pictures, we would love to see if we have any gardeners in our class.  

 

This week for well-being we are thinking about being safe at home. We hope you enjoy watching Doctor Ranj talk about keeping your hands clean and how to stay safe. Being safe is very important so talk to your family how you can keep on being safe and why it is important to do so.  

 

We have loved seeing some of your work at home, you can use the new school email to send us your learning  hello@gig-mill.dudley.sch.uk (Please put YR in the email title/subject). All the teachers enjoy seeing the hard work you have been doing and how happy you are.  

 

We are really missing your voices and smiley faces and can not wait to be with you at school again. But until then, keep on being safe and trying your best at home. We are all so proud of you. Here is a gold star for all of you ⭐️. 

 

Have a lovely half term,

Week Commencing 11th May 2020

Hello Reception! 

 

We hope you been enjoying some of the sunshine this week and have been enjoying the activities that we planned last week!  

 

We are hoping you are enjoying our new topic of ‘It’s a Wonderful World’ and managed to spot lots of ladybirds outside. We also hope you all enjoyed VE day. I know there have been many flags in windows which has been lovely to see.  

 

This week we are going to be carrying on our topic all about minibeasts and we have chosen the beautiful butterflies! There have been lots around recently and they all have beautiful patterns on their wings. All butterflies start out as caterpillars so see if you can spot any of those around before they go into their cocoons to start their change. We have added lots of creative activities for you to create your own butterflies too. 

 

This week for well-being we have added a fun activity that we know you will really enjoy! These activities are to help you keep your brain and body active. Make sure to get you parents and siblings involved too as it makes it much more fun 😊 

 

If you want to share your work or send us any pictures, you can use the new school email hello@gig-mill.dudley.sch.uk (Please put YR in the email title/subject). We really love seeing the work you have been doing as it always keeps us smiling! 

 

We really miss all of you in Reception and keep up the fantastic work you are doing at home!  

Keep on smiling.

Hello Reception,   

We hope you and all of your families are keeping well and staying safe. 

Miss Whitehead, Miss Carpenter, Mrs Dudley and Mrs Smith have all been in school recently and have seen how beautiful and colourful our school gates look with lots of your hard work! It has also been so lovely that on our way to school we have seen all your beautiful rainbows in the windows, well done! 

We also hope that you have all seen our video from all the staff at Gig Mill. It was really lovely to take part in this and we hoped you enjoyed watching it as much as we did.  If you haven’t seen it yet, visit our school website and see who you can see :) 

We hope you have enjoyed last week’s activities. We thought it would be lots of fun for you to go on a minibeast hunt and we hope you spotted lots of different minibeasts. For week 2 of our topic, it’s a wonderful world, this week, our activities are all about ladybirds. We have included a lovely science activity, songs, books and dances for you to enjoy.  

 

This week, we'd also like to invite you and your family to join in the celebrations for the 75th anniversary of VE Day, which is happening on Friday 8th May. Please click on the link on the school website homepage or here.  

 

Again, even though it is important that you complete some of these activities, you must also make time to have some fun and enjoyment with your family members. Try and get your family to join in with this week’s songs and dances too! 

 

Keep up the hard work Reception, we are all so proud of you and miss seeing you in school. Make sure you continue smiling :)
