Thank you for the fantastic turnout at our Stay and Learn session. It was wonderful to see parents/carers and children spending time together, enjoying learning. We hope this continues at home and that you can join us again for our next session on Monday 5th February at 8.50-9.30am when the focus will be letter formation.

Perfect Pizzas!

Reception are well underway with their latest child initiated topic of ‘pizzas’! It all began when they decided to turn the paper circles in the mark making area into delicious pizzas by adding colourful toppings and a crust. Evie W then told us that her Mummy had made dough at home and she had chosen the toppings to make her very own pizza. The next thing we knew, we were drawing a giant pizza on the floor, writing lists of ingredients so Mrs Booth could go shopping, and actually making our own pizzas to eat! We used our 5 senses to think of lots of describing words for the pizzas we had made and did our own fantastic writing about them too! We loved them so much that we decided to make a Pizza Café role play area so that we could continue the fun. The children have shown super turn-taking skills, being the waiter, customer and chef in our restaurant and listened extra carefully to make sure the orders are correct! We even managed to squeeze in some pizza based maths activities, sharing our pizzas fairly between friends and looking at the shapes we could see when we made a paper plate pizza. Phew – what a busy week!
