Welcome to Reception
We have had a lovely half term in Reception. We learnt all about traditional tales and were able to pick our favourite at the end! We had lots of fun measuring the length of the Giants footprint from Jack and the Beanstalk, we built a castle in the sky for Jack to go to and we compared the size of the teddy bears from Goldilocks and the three bears. When we came in one morning we found a broken chair in our classroom. It was our challenge to look for clues to find out who broke the chair. We have worked very hard and are now looking forward to our relaxing Christmas holidays. See you in January!
It was our first half term in Reception and we were very busy getting to know our new teacher, new friends and new classroom.
In maths we were learning all about numbers 0-10. There were numbers all over our classroom and we loved searching through the sand to see what we could find. We sang number songs together and are now super and doing our doubling rhymes!
During our first half term we learnt all about the Harvest festival and why we celebrate it. We had a fruit and vegetable tasting session and tried lots of new things. Some things we loved but others we were not so sure about.
We played lots with our new friends both inside the classroom and on the playground. One of our favourite things to do is to play on our adventure playground were we have to go over, under and through different obstacles. We were all very brave and were not afraid to give it a go.
We have had a very busy first half term in reception and are looking forward to having lots more fun!
We had have lots of fun learning all about the Chinese New Year. We made Chinese lanterns, lucky red envelopes and in the sensory tray we made lots of mess playing with the noodles and chopsticks!!!! Some of us even made our own Chinese New Year cards. Everybody got involved in making large Chinese dragons from junk materials.
We were very lucky to have a visit from the Owl Sanctuary as part of National Bird Week. We got to learn about the different types of owl and what owls like to eat.
Since returning to school after Christmas we have learnt all about winter. We had challenges that involved melting ice quickly and finding the most suitable materials to make a warm coat. We also learnt about how to look after birds in the winter and made some bird feeders that we hung in the school grounds.
We hope to have lots of fun this half term.
