Welcome to Reception!
Thursday 27th April
Reception had a fantastic Wow Day this week when we learnt what it was like to live in a castle. We made crowns and shields, and we also helped to prepare some food for a banquet. In the afternoon we took part in some different games such as jousting, hobby horse racing and blind man’s buff. We finished our day with a Medieval feast.

They then went into the Reception garden to help plant seeds in the flower beds and paint some of the flower beds. They also made bird feeders and cress heads. They had a fantastic day!
