Bikes and scooters

Date: 24th Nov 2020 @ 2:51pm

Today we got the bikes and scooters out.  We had so much fun riding them around our outdoor area especially going down the hill where we went really fast!  Some of us were a bit wobbly to begin with so we had to work hard on our balance and make sure we looked where we were going so we did not crash into anyone!

For our Thrive session this week we focused on mirroring.  We sat opposite our friend and had to copy each others actions without using our words.  Eye contact and concentration were really important as we followed what our friend was doing.  This activity works on developing relationships with others in the class. 

There's a Monster in the Shed...

Date: 19th Nov 2020 @ 8:28am

A strange thing happened the other day. Reception were outside and we heard a noise from inside the shed.  We investigated and listened carefully and decided there must be a monster in the shed!  We planned and built a monster trap and we haven't heard a noise since.  We will keep checking though - just in case! 

Autumn 1

We have been very busy in Reception exploring our classroom and outdoor area.  

As part of our technology work we have been taking selfies using an ipad.  We had to hold the ipad, turn the camera to face us and press the correct button.  As well as all of this we had to make sure we showed our best smiles!  

We may have got wet but it was brilliant exploring capacity.  We looked at containers of different shapes and sizes, predicted which would hold the most water and investigated to see if we were right!

We have had such a lot of fun exploring our outdoor area.  We have used our imagination to turn the crates into a train and went on a journey to the beach, forest and lavender hills.  There have been many cakes baked and dinners cooked in the mud kitchen, we may get messy but we develop our motor skills, imagination and language at the same time.  We have been exploring the tubes rolling balls and cars and seeing how fast they go.

Look at how hard we have been concentrating to complete the jigsaw puzzles in the classroom.  We have worked together and looked carefully at the pieces to see where they go.  We have been very proud of ourselves when the puzzle is finished!

Butterfly Blog

 Mr Smith has been looking after the butterflies at home, please look at the imaged to see how we got on.  4 butterflies emerged in the end and spent a few days building their strength before being released. We tried lots of different fruit for them to eat. Their favourites were apple and watermelon.

Over the Easter weekend, it was time to release the butterflies. The weather was perfect for them, bright and sunny with no wind. One of them didn’t want to come out and Mr Smith had to help it on it’s way. Once it left the net, it sat on the wall and enjoyed the sun before flying away.
