Reception children's topic work, Spring Term

Reception children at Cliftonville Primary and pre-school experienced a fabulous finish to their topic of growing last term.


They enjoyed a visit from The National Fruit Show and a mouth-watering apple workshop. The youngsters were completely immersed in a story about the year of an apple as well as learning lots of new apple facts.


They also tried a range of apples as well as apple crisps and apple sweets. and were able to use the juicer to make apple juice and then drink the product of their hard work.


To round the day off, children got messy and used the left over apples to create apple print masterpieces.


As a parting gift, the school was an apple tree to plant so the children are able to take care of it and produce homegrown apples for the future.


Karen Hill, Year Group Leader, said: “What a fabulous way to round off our learning this term. The children thoroughly enjoyed the whole apple experience – from fruit tasting to juicing to getting messy with paint.

“As they left school, we could hear them rushing to tell their parents about this fantastic experience and even asking if they could buy an apple tree for their own gardens.’
