Reception having been working really hard this week exploring numbers beyond 10 and the patterns we can see in the numbers. We used the numicon to make and label our own number lines from 11-20. What fantastic Solveosaurus Rex children we all were.
We had a wonderful time on our trip to the scout hut this week! It was a very busy day filled with lots of fun and exciting activities. First, we went on a summer walk around the grounds and looked for signs of summer and thought about the changes we could hear, see and feel compared to spring. Next, we made a nature rainbow where we collected different things of every colour of the rainbow. Then, we went on a fairy door Hunt where we looked at the different shaped fairy doors hiding in the woodland. We also used our school iPads to take photos of what we found. We finished the day by making our very own fairy doors.
It was a fantastic day filled with lots of fun and adventure and we are very proud of the Reception children! ⭐️
We have been thinking about the different life cycles we have learnt about this year. We then made a diagram of the life cycle of a butterfly. We remembered when we had the caterpillars in our class and that they turned into butterflies. What fantastic Explorasaurs we are!
We had a fantastic time telling our friends all about our favourite book and we talked about why we like it. Take a look at our book cover designs! I love the story Owl Babies by Martin Waddell because I love the way the owls look after each other. What is your favourite story?
The Singing Playground Leaders were in Reception today, teaching the children songs and dancing games. Everyone had great fun!
We know that things will change after our Summer holiday, because we will be in Year One with new teachers! We visited the Year one classrooms, saw the Year One lockers and looked at their playground. We’re excited about going into Year One in September!
We have enjoyed exploring different numbers and number bonds using the rekenreks this week.
What a fantastic time we had at our Reception Sports Day this week. All the children joined in fantastically and we had great fun! Thank you to all the families who joined us for the event.
We listened to African drumming music and talked about how it made us feel. We then painted while we listened. Sometimes our painting was fast and sometimes it was slow… We felt excited, happy, calm and sleepy!
We learned how to play African drums. We kept the slow and fast pulse.
