Reception: Reaching For The Stars


Our Reception classes have certainly been 'reaching for the stars' this week, with the text 'How to Catch a Star' by Oliver Jeffers being one of the focuses in lessons.

The children enjoyed re-telling the story and thought about how they would catch a star before, on Tuesday afternoon, enjoying a variety of activities linked to stars.


The children made star shaped sandwiches and then, after looking at the different star constellations on the interactive whiteboard, the children had a go at making some themselves!


The ones made out of spaghetti and marshmallows were very effective and most of them made it home before they got eaten!
