Sparrows – Reception

Welcome to Sparrows class page.

We are a Reception Class.

Our teacher is Miss McGrattan.

We have P.E every Monday and Tuesday and library every Thursday.

Some firemen came in to see us and we got to go inside the fire engine!

We loved tasting lots of different fruits!

Some of our stars of the day so far!

We have been listening to lots of different types of music and we even tried making our own music using the instruments.

We have also been learning about the famous artist Vincent Van Gogh. Did you know he used to be a teacher before he became an artist? We loved looking at all of his paintings but our favourite was A Starry Night. We even painted our own versions!

The Sparrows really enjoyed playing in the snow! Some of us even tried to make snow angels!


Happy New Year Sparrows! I am so happy to have you all back in class! We have had a very fun first week back. Our new topic is favourite things and this week we were learning about houses. We did some lovely paintings of our own homes and some of us even used Lego to make houses!

We had a fun P.E lesson outside where we developed our underarm throw and we tried to balance a bean bag on our head as we walked around.

Then on Friday morning Champlins theatre perfomers came in and we got to watch Cinderella. We loved the character Buttons as he was very funny!

We are also very happy and excited to now have Mrs Griffiths in class helping us!

This week we had fun exploring a pumpkin.

We all really enjoyed seeing the animals with the Natural History lady.

We loved meeting Stephen from Kind charity and the Kind dog Benji.

All our Sparrows have settled in really well! We have been ejoying doing Spanish, yoga, using the iPads and playing in the outdoor learning area. We have been learning some sounds and have been practising our numbers, as well as showing off our lovely singing voices. We have painted some lovely displays of our class bird and self portraits.

We will be giving out reading books next week, so make sure to have a look in book bags.


Welcome to the new Sparrows.

I am looking forward to seeing you again in September. Have a lovely summer!

Best wishes

Miss McGrattan
