Today we had to say a sad goodbye to Alessandro.  Alessandro is moving to Italy and we want to wish him and his family the best of luck in their new adventure. Alessandro has been a valued member of RL and we will all miss him very much. Good luck in your new school Alessandro we know you will make lots of new friends and learn lots of new exciting things. 

We also said goodbye to the wonderful Miss Gaijda. Miss Gaijda is going off to have her baby and will be back at Clapham Manor in June 2018. We are all going to miss her so much as she is such an important part of RL and has done so much to help the children and teachers. We wish her all the very best of luck and look forward to hearing her exciting news very soon!

Massage

Posted by Mrs Tennant & Mr Saunders on Friday Jun 23, 2017 Under Personal, Social and Emotional, Physical Development

As you know we have been taking part in the Massage in Schools Programme. Studies have shown that, when children give massage to each other, they become calmer, concentrate better and have more confidence. Why not have a go at some of the massage techniques (pictures below) at home on a family member. Remember to ask permission first.

Measuring Distances

Posted by Mrs Tennant & Mr Saunders on Friday Jun 23, 2017 Under Uncategorized

For the last 2 weeks in RL, we have been learning about distances, how to measure them using non-standard metric units and practicing to use everyday language to talk about distances.  We discussed things that are ‘near’ and ‘far’. We also used a variety of things to measure the distance between objects, such as blocks, bricks and even our hands and feet.

QUESTION TIME.

Can you measure how far it is from your bedroom to the front door?

What will you use to measure the distance?

Is your bedroom ‘near to’ or ‘far away’ from your bathroom?

Fairy Fun

Posted by Mrs Tennant & Mr Saunders on Friday Jun 23, 2017 Under Expressive Arts and Design, Literacy, Maths, Understanding the World

On the first day back after half term, we noticed that our classroom was very messy, in fact there was glitter all over the place. We found a tiny door and a very small letter. The letter was from a group of fairies and they told us that Imps had stolen the ‘Unicorn food’ and hid it in our classroom. We worked together to search the classroom for the Unicorn food. Luckily, C found the Unicorn food upstairs in our book area so we wrote letters back to the fairies notifying them that the Unicorn food had been found.

The next day, to show how grateful they were, the fairies wrote back to the class to say thank you and to show their appreciation, they sent us some special ingredients to make ‘Fairy Sandwiches’. To make these sandwiches suitable for reception children, RL, needed to use their doubling skills to add the right amount of ingredients.

Our Second Trip to the Spinney

Posted by Mrs Tennant & Mr Saunders on Friday May 19, 2017 Under Uncategorized

We had another fantastic afternoon at the Spinney on Thursday. There was so much to see and do. Some children used different materials to make The Three Little Pigs houses, lots of children experimented with the coloured water and containers and some of us went on a ‘Creepy Crawly Hunt’ with Mr Beldon. Can you remember any of the mini-beasts we found? Who can remember what the toad did on Mr Beldons hand?
