Farming Week

This week in Reception we have been looking at the story of 'The Little Red Hen' the children have been exploring the story in our Literacy sessions, which they have supported using puppets and props. The children enjoyed the use of puppets so much that they shaped thier choosing time to suit this, creating a whole class puppet theatre! Fantastic use of imagination, they even created tickets!

In Maths this week we have been looking at using Numicon to familiarise ourselves with what different quantities look like and then matching to numbers. We also had a very exciting visit from a tractor from Willoughby Foods, where we had the opportunity to sit in the tractor and learn more about what tracters do. Another busy week from Reception.

Tractor visit

Apple Week

This Week in Reception we have been looking at 'Apples'. In maths we looked at the book 'Ten apples up on top' which had a catchy song to go with it, this led our learning into more, less and the same. I am sure that you have heard about our 'apple crumble making' from your child as they were all extremely excited to be both making and tasting it, this steered our Literacy to writing about the key ingredients. Towards the end of the week we did an apple investigation looking at what happens to apples when you cut them and leave them open. In PE this week we have continued to play listening games but also looked at the importance of warming up and cooling down properly. In our choosing time we have been putting alot of focus into our fine motor activities lots of threading, tweezer using, brick tower building and pencil control. A very busy week. looking forward to the next!

Little Acorns

This week in Reception we have been looking at the story of the 'Little Acorn', its a story about how an acorn changes into an Oak tree and then grows more acorns. The children really loved their learning this week about all things Autumnal, We began the week going on an Autumn walk, we were so inspired by the changes that we could see occuring we decided to collect different objects which relfect Autumn and create an Autumn exploration tuff spot in the classroom, from this the children used pastels to draw parts, collaged leaves to create hedgehogs and counted acorns.

We have been trying hard in our PE sessions to get changed by ourselves and keep our clothes safe and tidy, this has been tricky, its important to keep practising at home aswell as at school. In PE we have played lots of short games, 'The Bean game' being a favourite and we have been working together to help one another on and off equipment to show how being kind and supporting each other is important.


Exciting beginnings!

Well we have had a great start to the term, we have been learning rules and different routines which we have in school, we have been practising lots of new skills. We have been having lots of fun with our number this week bringing nursery rhymes to life, see below for the fun we had with 'ten in the bed'. We have been exploring our classroom and learning where different things are kept.
