This week, the children did a shape hunt around the classroom. We talked about the different objects that we found and their properties! We also did some still life drawing by looking at which shapes we could spot.

This week in Reception, we have been reading the tale of ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’. The children have enjoyed acting out the story in small groups using repeated refrains and actions.
We have also been learning the sounds ‘ch’, ‘qu’ and ‘x’ and practising them in class as well as doing lots of lovely singing for our Christmas production called ‘A Wriggly Nativity’.

Thank you so much to all of the grown ups who were able to join us at our Explorer Café on Tuesday. The children loved having you here and we hope you enjoyed it too! Can your child remember any of the ways to be safe around fireworks?

Look at our firework creations! We used our fine motor skills and our imaginations to help us make these. Lots of us also enjoyed going on a Number Hunt around the classroom trying to recognise different numbers.

On Monday we came into our classrooms to find a terrible mess!!!
The children investigated what could have happened and came up with some great ideas.
“Maybe it was a bear because he would be strong to flip the table.”
“It was a giant ant!”
We then read the story ‘The Great Storm’ and the children helped build some new homes for the animals.

We got back to class after lunch to find there had been a storm in our classroom!

We talked about what we think had happened and we found a Percy The Park Keeper book called ‘After the storm’ which we read in class. We talked about the storm in the story and what Percy and the animals did to fix the damage.

This week Reception have been reading ‘The Scarecrows’ Wedding’ and enjoyed making some scarecrows in the outdoor area.
We have also been talking about the changes in Autumn and discussing all of the things we notice. I wonder what you can find on your way to school? Can you find some different coloured leaves?
We have also focused on being ‘safe’ in school this week, which is one of our school rules. Today the children in Reception had a fire practise and were all super stars!! Well done Reception.
Thank you all of the parents and family members who attended our first cafe on Thursday. We look forward to seeing you at the next one 🙂

This week in Reception we made an interesting discovery! We found some mystery foot prints in our classroom and have been investigating who they belong to. The children came up with some great ideas…

“They might be a dinosaur”

“It’s a big bear”

“It could be a tiger. They have big feet!”

We measured the size of the prints and thought about what animals it couldn’t be.

Reception have been settling into their daily routines and rules and exploring their new classroom and outdoor area.
