Merry Christmas! 
We had lots of fun counting down to Christmas! We wrote letters to Santa and made lots of Christmas crafts including some special cards and calendars for our grown ups. We enjoyed our Christmas disco and party games! We even had a visit from Santa who gave us some special reindeer food to use on Christmas Eve. Merry Christmas everyone!

Being a scientist!

The witch from Room on the Broom left some ingredients and a colour mixing challenge for the children. The children had to mix different colours to find out which colours they made. The children then got to mix ingredients to make their own magical exploding potions.

Ocean Yoga

We have been enjoying our 'Ocean Yoga' sessions in Reception. We have learnt a variety of breathing techniques to help us calm down, relax and slow down our bodies and minds, and we have been practising a selection of ocean themed yoga poses. Here we are learning and using the 'Pause Breath' and 'Shoulder Breath' techniques and holding the jellyfish, shark, dolphin, crab and turtle poses. Can you tell which is which?
