EU Voting (School Version)

Today 23rd June 2016, in Reception, we learnt about what our grown ups would be doing today. Some of us knew it was voting day! Miss Dosanjh told us about why they are voting and why it is important. We looked at an example of a voting card and read through the instructions and rules to follow.

 

Miss Dosanjh set up a polling station inside the classroom. Mr Lickers helped out and handed out the voting cards. Here, some children are confirming their names and our voting question was 'Should we wear uniform?'

We voted and remembered to keep our answers a secret!

 

We folded our slips and put them into the box. Miss Dosanjh counted the slips and the results were...

26 children said 'yes' to school uniform.

9 children said 'no' to school uniform.

 

We had a little debate about our answers.

'We look smart'                    'you know we are in school'

            'the teachers don't wear school

        uniform, and we do and that's not fair!'

 

We learned a lot about voting and really enjoyed today!

 

Food for Life Planting

Mr Gilford talked to us about plants...
we all had a go at planting...
we planted pumpkins, strawberries...
lettuces and sweetcorn.
We all had a go at watering these too!

Forest Day in Reception

On one of the sunnier days this month, Reception decided to have a Forest Day! We took our things from the classroom and had a whole day in the conservation area exploring, writing lists and making tents and dens. We even found a frog which we let go in a safer part of the conservation area. 

 

We saw all sorts of insects and mini-beasts and we worked together to help each other make our dens!
