The Animal Man!

Yesterday Henry the animal man visited Reception with lots of different animals for us to look at, stroke and hold! He bought 2 snakes, a hedgehog, 2 geckos, an owl, a huge cockroach, a bearded dragon and a tanuki (Japanese raccoon dog). He told us loads of interesting facts about each animal and we were all so brave holding and stroking them!

Our trip to the library!

On Friday Reception enjoyed a trip to south yardley library! We walked together and enjoyed a session with the librarian Sarah! She told us all about the library and how to join and what we can do there. She read us a story and then gave us the chance to look at some of the books by ourselves! We love reading in Reception!

1A visit South Yardley Library

On Tuesday morning we walked across the park and went under the underpass to get to South Yardley Library.

We were very quiet while we had a look around and explored all the different types of books.

   
 
Then we met Sarah who works in the Library. She told us about all the fun things they do in the holidays and told us that we could borrow 10 books to take home if we have a Library card.

   
 
Then Miss Arthur read us a funny story about a boy who turned green because he ate too many peas!

   
 
Finally we chose some books to borrow on our class card.

  
We can’t wait to read them back at school!

Villa Park

On Thursday Year 5 spent the day at Villa Park. Despite a lot of us supporting different teams, we had a great day. We spent the morning in The Academy, where we were split into  7 different European teams. Each team played 6 games, with bonus points awarded for being ready and respectful. England and Spain finished equal first so played in the final where no goals were scored. The winners were decided with a sudden death penalty competition. After 5 pens each, Spain were the eventual winners.

In the afternoon we were given a tour of the ground, where we visited the players lounge, both home and away dressing rooms, the media room and finally the tunnel onto the pitch.

Everyone was impeccably behaved and had an amazing time. St Andrews next?

Jill Rowe

We enjoyed listening to Jill, head of Oasis Ethos, in assembly. She talked to us about putting on the nine habits: honesty, forgiveness, compassion, patience, consideration, self-control, being humble, joy and hope, like we would clothes.

Later on we had a workshop, where we discussed what we are good at and watched some funny videos.

Think about this quote: ‘If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.’

We thought about questions we would like other people to ask us to help us make ourselves better.

Which habit would you like to work on?

What questions could people ask you to help you to be a better person?

Aspire Week in Reception!!!

This week throughout OAH it’s aspire week. Today in Reception we started thinking about our identities and what we looked like. We learned that not everybody is the same and we all have different hopes, dreams and aspirations. We used a mirror to describe ourselves and then drew pictures of ourselves in our aspire week books.
We loved it!
