Describing our families and sequencing the human life cycle


Today we have been talking about our families and thinking about how change as we grow. 

We have enjoyed drawing our families and talking about the life cycle of a human. In small groups we have sequenced the human life cycle and discussed what we can and can’t do at each stage of life.

We talked about what age we are when we become a teenager and an adult.

Piet Mondrian - The Primary Colours


Today we have been looking at primary colours once againWe have studied famous art work and observed the use of primary colours

We used the programme ‘paint’ on the computer to create our very own art work to look like Piet Mondrian’s.

We also worked together to create a large class picture just like Mondrian’s.

Religious Education 

Exploring the wonderful world that God created


The children enjoyed going on a nature walk around the school grounds. They talked about all the wonderful things they could see that God has created. They each took it in turns to take a photo of something they could see that God has made. The children also collected natural objects. We then made a class collage with our photos and objects found on the walk.

Describing what we look like and our likes/dislikes


Today we have been talking about what we look like and describing our facial features. We have also been discussing what we like and dislike and that not everybody likes the same things. We share similarities, but differences too.

We are unique!

The Creation story


We have been learning all about the Creation story. We have learned that God made the world in seven days. In groups, we made a large collage to represent what God made on each of the seven days. Our collage helped us to recall keys parts of the story.

The Primary Colours


Today we have been learning all about primary colours. Some of the children went on a little hunt around the classroom to find objects that are red, yellow or blue. We then made 3 class collages for each of the primary colours. We enjoyed cutting and sticking a range materials to create the collages. We know that primary colours cannot be made by mixing other colours.

Understanding the world

Describing where we live and mapping our route from home to school


Today we have been talking about where we live. We looked at a map of the world, then maps of the United Kingdom, Birmingham and then Weoley Castle. We spotted where our school is on the map of Weoley Castle. We talked about how we get to school and what we see on our way to school. The children drew maps of their route to school and labelled them.

Knowing our way around school and who's who...


This year we are unable to go on a scavenger hunt around the school, but we had a look at a number of photos of the key places in our school, e.g. Mrs. O’Meally’s office, the school hall etc. We talked about the different areas in our classroom and what we can and can’t do.

We also looked at pictures of the staff members and discussed who they are and what their job roles are.

Our first self-portraits


We all had a go at painting our first self-portrait in Reception. We used mirrors to help us.

You are a child of God...

You are wonderfully made, dearly loved, and precious in His sight.

Before God made you,

He knew you... 

There is no one else like you!

Psalm 139
