The Making of our Gingerbread Men

As a part of our 'Once Upon A Time' theme, Reception have been reading about the Gingerbread Man. They all enjoyed the story so much and RP wanted to make their very own Gingerbread men to see if they would come to life.

  • First we weighed out the Ingredients together using scales


  • Then we measured and mixed together the ingredients

  • After the dough was made, we put it in the fridge for 10 minutes to cool. "We used a sand timer to measure it"



  • Then we rolled out the dough and carefully cut out the gingerbread man shape and placed them on a tray ready for baking.


  • Once they were baked, the Gingerbread Men didn't run away so we got to take them home to eat.


 The Gingerbread Man

Last week in Reception, we read the story of the Gingerbread man.  We went to the ICT room and used Purple Mash to create pictures of the Gingerbread man. It was a little bit tricky but we all tried super hard to use the mouse and choose the colours. We are all looking forward to our next ICT lesson.

Jelly Making Fun

This week in RJ, children have been making squishy, wobbly jelly. We mixed the warm water and the jelly and stirred it until it all dissolved. We then used a pipette to put the jelly into two different moulds. We placed the jelly in the fridge so that they would be ready in time for our Alien Tea Party!

We can't wait to eat it.




Remembrance Day

Children in RJ made their very own poppies in the 'creative' area. They worked super hard to cut around the shapes and put them together. All the children were proud to wear their poppies for Remembrance Day.




Science Day

 For Science Day, children in RJ made bubble wands using pipe cleaners. They used washing up liquid mixed with water to make the bubbles. They had so much fun creating their own shaped bubbles.








Summer 2015-16


Our reception pupils have had so much fun writing out tricky words using paint and cotton buds. We are so impressed with the work they have produced and would like to show you a completed piece. We are sure you will agree that they have done great.
