Scarecrow Making

This week the children have read the story `The Scarecrow's Wedding` and were given the opportunitiy to create their very own scarecrow. All the scarecrows were entered into the `Great Oak's Scarecrow Competition` alongside the reception class from Wyberton Primary School. For this activity, the children had to use a range of craft materials to bring their scarecrow to life and use different tools to cut and stick the materials. Every child enjoyed making these and also enjoyed talking to Wyberton via Skype. The winner for St Thomas' Primary School was chosen by Mrs Taylor and her class and they recieved a copy of `The Scarecrow's Wedding.`

Reception's Tractor Visit

This afternoon a tractor from Willoughby Foods came to visit Reception and all the children were very excited. This week the children have been learning all about the Harvest season and have read the story The Little Red Hen. During the tractor visit, all the children got to ask their own questions and talk about the different parts of a tractor. After, each child had the opportunity to sit inside and sound the horn. 

 

                   

 

   

Little Acorns

This week the chidren have started their learning based around the season `Autumn`. We started the week by reading the story `Little Acorns` and discussed what happens to the leaves and acorns during this time of year. All the children pretended to be an acorn on the tree and discussed the different vocabulary that was used in the story. They then used actions to represent how an acorn might fall from the tree and explored the life cycle. Some children then went onto create their own giant acorn sculpture using paper pulp. This was very messy and was enjoyed by the boys in the class. 

Outside the children have noticed the weather becoming colder, wetter and windier. This week, the children also created their own rainbows in the puddles using powder paint and sweeping brushes. They explored how the colours changed when mixed together. 

In Maths this week the children have been exploring shapes. We all went on a shape hunt at the start of the week and some children during their child intiated went on to searching for different 2D shapes in the sandpit Some children created their own ramps to investigate which 3D shapes roll and slide. 

Our first full week in Reception

Reception are now in school full time and the children are settling in well. The children have started learning their set one sounds and are beginning to identify the first sounds in words. They have also been taking part in different fine motor activities in preparation for writing. On Wednesday the children had their first P.E lesson in the sports hall and participated in different sporting games.
