"Play is the highest form of Research" - Albert Einstein 

Autumn 2 Week 1 – Children settled right back into school after a lovely week off, we enjoyed sharing what we got up to over half term. We explored Bonfire night this week and created our very own fireworks with chalk. Children enjoyed playing outside on our balcony, they were busy building a house as you can see! We have loved watching the children grow in confidence and this week they blew us away with their wonderful writing, they have practicing to write and read CVC words. Well done Reception, we can’t wait to have another fantastic week with you!

Autumn 2 Week 2 – This week children have been learning all about Diwali. We have exploring how people celebrate Diwali and how they will be celebrating it a little bit differently this year. We explored the wonderful story of Sama and Rita. We even made our very own Diwali cards, Rangoli and mehndi design! To mark Remembrance Day children listening to the bells of the cathedral ring for 2 minutes and sat in silence, we were so proud of them!

Autumn 2 Week 3 – This week is Anti-Bullying week and to start it off the Bella and Bertie Classes worse odd socks to school. We enjoyed taking part in a wake up shake up and explored what makes us special and unique from one another. Can you spot your odd socks in the picture?

We are learning all about the country Italy this week, children have loved exploring Italy in PBL. We have even got our very own Italian Restaurant in our classroom this week, it’s called Fritto. Have you ever heard of Fritto before? You might have seen it around Liverpool before as it’s an award-winning Italian Street Food and we are so lucky to have it in our classroom. Luca who owns Fritto Street Market has been very kind and shared with us how to make our very own pizza and pasta. Luca's son Oliver kindly taught us all how to make pizza just like his Daddy! Reception children enjoyed eating the pizza they made in Golden time. 



Autumn 2 Week 4 - This week we went on our first journey outside of LIPA Primary School. We walked to the Cathedral and performed our Christmas Performances, we can not wait to share it with you soon! 

We have also enjoyed exploring the season winter and making snowflakes! 

Autumn 2 Week 5 - Our class elf Jingle came to visit us this week and left an important job for us to do! They left us a recipe booklet to follow instructions on how to make Reindeer Food. We have loved following the instructions step by step to make our reindeer food. We have decided that we are going to sell it at our Christmas Fair, we can't wait to share it with you!


Autumn 2 Week 7 – This week we enjoyed watching our project outcome. All children felt very proud of what they have achieved this term. They have all worked so hard! We had a movie afternoon with popcorn, we were the stars in the movie! We hope that all our grownups loved our movie as much as we did. Children also enjoyed a week of fun Christmas activities with all of their teachers!


Autumn 2 Week 8 – This week children have enjoyed doing lots of celebrating, exploring and playing as we prepare to go off on our Christmas Holidays. We had two very special visitor this week. One of them was Father Christmas, he came to join us during lunch time. We performed Rudolph the Red nose Reindeer and he absolutely loved it! We felt very proud. Our second visitor was our lovely governor Jacqueline Neve. We shared story, showed Jacqueline some of the lovely things we had made and also performed. We can’t wait to share a story with Jacqueline again soon. We are now at the end of term and are definitely ready for our well-earned break. Thank you to all of the wonderful parents for helping us on our learning journey this term. We look very forward to seeing you all again soon. From all of the EYFS Team we wish you a safe, peaceful, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
