Reception Class 2018 – 2019
This week we have looked at our faces in the mirror and talked about what we could see. We then used wood and metal objects to make a self portrait.
This week we have been exploring the Mud Kitchen. We have enjoyed mixing water and soil to make different mixtures. We have added leaves, sticks, conkers and fir cones to make cakes, cookies and chicken pies!
We have been learning about builders and how buildings are made. Some of us drew the building we would like to make and then worked with others to make it. We enjoyed using the cement mixer to mix cement for the bricks. We showed good sharing, team work and problem solving skills.
Stay and Play
This week Reception enjoyed a Stay and Play session with an adult from home. They enjoyed showing their adult all of the fun things they like to do and their favourite areas to work in.
What a fun day we have had! All of Reception looked great in their pirate costumes and took part in lots of pirate activities. We have been looking for treasure, walking the plank, playing with pirate toys, making pirate flags and hats, reading pirate stories and we finished the day with our pirate run this afternoon. Thanks to all the adults that came to support our Pirate Day. It was a huge success and the children have loved being pirates for the day – aaaaaargh!
This week Reception have enjoyed visiting our Optician role play area for a check up! The children have been testing each other’s eyes and have loved trying on different glasses. It has been great seeing children writing names, sounds and numbers independently when writing appointment cards and receipts.
Lots of Reception have loved being Superheroes this week and have enjoyed making their own masks and coming up with their own Superhero names. Check out these fantastic Superhero poses…
Looking for Minibeasts
Lots of children enjoyed finding creatures in our outdoor area this week. So much so, that the children helped to improve our minibeast area! We moved it around and the children collected logs, sticks, leaves etc. to put inside so that we can attract even more creatures!
First Week at School
Reception have enjoyed a fantastic first few days at school! Everyone has been getting to know each other and exploring their new indoor and outdoor classroom. We are all very excited for the year ahead!
