Reception Class Assembly

Posted on May 17 2017

The Reception children have waited nearly all year, but this term they finally got the chance to perform a class assembly, showcasing all their fantastic learning so far.

They worked their way through a typical day on the Reception timetable, starting with our singing register. They had some difficult names to remember and articulate, but they did it without any help from Miss Killian.

Next, they taught the audience some important phonics terms including digraphs, tri-graphs and phonemes. Then came literacy and it was time to share how to write a super sentence with the super sentence rhyme. We now know that a super sentence needs a capital letter, finger spaces and a full stop. The children then shared some sentences taken from their PSHE lessons about how to keep healthy.

Then it was time for maths, and to learn all about skip counting.  I think it is safe to say we all left chanting '2-4-6-8 who do we appreciate!'.

Next it was over to Mrs Wainwright, to perform her made up song about lunchtime, which started with just a few of the children’s favourite foods from school lunches.  She is so clever that she taught our 4 and 5 year olds how to create music with instrumental poles and xylophones.

Just when we thought it was all over, Reception stepped up to the challenge of acting out the story of ‘The Enormous Turnip’. They taught us about the author and the illustrator and then got to work as a team trying to push and pull the enormous turnip from the ground. Little did the audience know that Receptions fake papier mâché turnip took the children four whole weeks to create, it was an enormous task. The children were faced with an enormous problem after the assembly of how to turn it back into just a plain old space hopper.

The end of the assembly finished with the perfect line, when the turnip finally came up “thank goodness for that, I am hungry”.   The children were hungry to carry on as they concluded with not one but two rounds of singing their favourite song ‘The Turnip Song’.

Miss Killian and her team are so proud of all the children; they worked very hard preparing props, learning lines and songs. The Reception class assembly has always been very much about teamwork and without everyone at home it would not have been possible to produce such a polished performance. So, thank you once again for all your help and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
