  • Goldilocks and The Three Bears Apple Porridge

    As you have been doing work about Goldilocks and the Three Bears, I thought it would be nice for you to have a go at making your own porridge. This is a lovely recipe but you can add any flavouring you want.

    Porridge is a good source of energy and will keep you going all morning.

    Make sure you have an adult with you at all times.


    Goldilocks and the Three Bears Apple Porridge


    50g                              Porridge oats

    350ml                         Milk

    2 tablespoons        Sultanas

    ½ teaspoon              Cinnamon

    ½  teaspoon             Grated apple

    What to do:

    • Mix the oats and the milk together in a bowl
    • Microwave on high for 2 and a half minutes
    • Stir the porridge
    • Microwave on high for another 2 and a half minutes
    • Let it stand for 1 minute as it is very hot
    • Decorate your porridge with the apple, sultanas and cinnamon.

    (If you don’t like apple and sultana, try jam, syrup, berries, banana whatever )


    You could upload pictures of your porridge to Tapestry. It might make us hungry though!

    The Reception Team

  • Phonics – Tuesday

  • The Rainbow Fish

    There are many different activities you can do with the Rainbow fish story.

    • draw a fish shape with scales and practise writing a letter (or a tricky word from last week’s worksheets) in each scale
    • act out the story and pretend to be the Rainbow fish or the little blue fish or the octopus
    • write a list of people you would give a shiny scale to. You could make shiny scales and actually give them to them if you like. How did that make them feel?
  • Washing

    Hello Elephants and Zebras,

    We know what amazing helpers you all are so we hope you’re using these skills to help your grownups at home. We’ve heard that some of you have been busy making your beds, helping set the table at meal times and even doing a little bit of tidying up. Well done!

    Maybe you could try folding your pyjamas up under your pillow this week or matching pairs of socks when they’ve been washed.

    Washing activity (adult supervised):

    Colour sort the washing and count the items as you throw them into the machine.

    Measure washing powder and conditioner

    How does it smell?

  • Squish the Fish Yoga

    Hello Reception

    Here is some fun yoga for you to try at home.  See how long you can hold your Yoga poses for.

    You can also join Squish the Fish for a swim too, what will happen on your adventure?

    Have lots of fun.

  • Keeping Fit

    Did everyone hear the news that Joe Wicks is going to be doing his exercise classes again? We are looking forward to joining in with those and there are lots of other ways we can all be active. We are lucky in Bushey and Watford to have lovely parks such as King George’s and Cassiobury Park which are great for running around, splashing in muddy puddles (in your wellies, of course!) and riding your bikes. I know that some of you like cycling. Have you been on the Ebury Way with your grown ups? It is a long ride but a really good, fun way to exercise those legs.

    We are also very lucky to have fields and woods nearby to explore Attenborough Woods and Merry Hill Fields stretch for acres; so many walks and adventures! If you look carefully you might see squirrels and birds gathering food.

    It would be lovely to see where you go for your daily exercise and what you do. Your grown ups could put the photos on Tapestry, we would love to see them.
