We have set up a new Our Work From Home display board in the Reception classroom. Drawings, writing, photos or anything else which showcases any work you child does at home can be brought in to display until the following Friday when it will be sent back home. This is a brilliant way to encourage all our children to be creative and use their skills. We can't wait to see what is brought in!
Can I switch it on? Pictures from our exploration of circuits, switches and battery power
We completed an Autumn treasure hunt, the children found the correct amount of Autumn treasure to match their number.
We have been learning phrases such as; on top of, underneath, behind and next to. The children were hiding their nuts in the cups and whispering to the squirrel where they had hidden them. Pictures are below.
Making the bread; all the children took part in kneading the dough, we got very messy and had good fun!!
Taste time!! Parents came in to share soup, bread and stories with the children, here are some pictures.
Phonics - Read Write Inc
So far we have learnt the sounds: m,a,s,d,t,i,n,p,g,o and we are now learning to put them together to be able to read words. Here is some of our amazing work we have done.
This week we have been looking at autumn, we've walked to the outdoor classroom to collect leaves, conkers and apples. We've discussed where they come from, how they feel and what they smell like. We've had some fantastic descriptive words such as spikey, smooth and one child even said that a red autumn leaf looked like it was bleeding. We've been counting and sorting conkers and even using them to make words.
We have been so busy last week, here are some pictures of us exploring and learning how to do new things!
Alfie and Robert throwing away their name cards!!!!1
If your child brings home a piece of paper with a star on, it means they are star of the day, please keep the star and collect 5. Once you have 5, bring them back in and they can go in the Reception Treat Box.
Thank you :)
We have a lovely week in Reception. We have learnt how to squiggle, which is helping us to develop our mark making skills through movement to music. We like to turn the music up and use scarves to dance with. We have also become more independent and now can get a healthy snack and milk by ourselves.
Mrs Catlyn has taught us how to use the play dough shelf properly and we know all the equipment names. Miss Leggett is helping everyone to tidy up independently because we love to keep our classroom tidy.
Mr Lingard has had great fun outside with your boys and girls in the wind.
