A Visit from West Yorkshire Police
Reception have been busy again this half term and have been visited by some very special people.
Police officers, Steve and Hannah visited Reception in their uniform.
We all listened very carefully as they explained how the police do a very important job helping us.
The children learnt about keeping safe in cars. We know how important it is that we always wear a seatbelt when we are travelling in a car, even if it is only for a short journey.
Police officer Hannah explained what the children should do if they see something on their computers or mobile phones that they didn’t like. This is helpful for being at school and when they are at home.
After the Police had given their talk, the children were excited to show them our Police Station in the Outside Area!
“Hello, who has burgled you?” Amelia
We all enjoyed playing in the Police Station after the visit, remembering about the things they had learnt.
When the Fire Service came to give Year 5 a safety talk, Reception class got to go outside and see the Fire Engine they had arrived in!
Here are some photos of us learning about the important job the Fire Service do in our local community, to keep us safe.
Here is Reception class joining in a Zumba lesson!
We all had to watch Mrs Harnby as she taught us the different steps to do in time to the music.
We had so much fun all doing it together!
We are only a few weeks into our first term in Reception Class, but we have already been so busy!
In Reception we have lots of different areas where we can learn and play.
We have been learning how to work and play nicely with our new friends.
We all try our best to share all the resources that we are using so that everyone gets a turn.
Our Number Challenge this week was seeing if we could match the number of bears in the cup to the number written on the front.
We loved learning to count out the bears and check using our fingers!
You can see how we were counting in the photograph.
“Look at me, I can count! 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6!” Maya
“Look I’m doing it too!” Ravneet
Reception classes were very lucky to have had a visit from the nurse this half term.
Nurse Jacky has been teaching us about how important it is to wash our hands.
We used the light box to check if we had washed our hands properly.
Can you see the special coloured light shining on our hands?
This light showed up any germs we hadn’t washed off! Yuk!
In another visit she showed us how to keep safe and healthy.
We learnt all about why we need to keep clean and how important it is to eat healthy food.
As a school, we are all are encouraged to bring healthy snacks to eat.
She showed us ‘Mucky Mabel’ who is a doll who didn’t keep clean and had no friends.
We looked at the poison symbol on cleaning products and know we mustn’t touch anything with it on.
After all that we had been taught, we couldn’t wait to get home and tell our families how to keep clean and healthy!
