What an amazing turn out for our workshare this afternoon! Thank you to everyone for coming and helping to celebrate the children’s learning across the school. 🎖️
This week we have been thinking about how to use the bikes and scooters safely. We talked about the importance of always wearing a helmet to protect our head and to look where we are going. The children decided to use sand timers to help them to share the bikes and scooters so that everyone could have a turn.
In Reception this week we have been learning about Lunar New Year. We have made lanterns, decorated our classrooms and had a go at writing some numbers in sand. We also learnt the story of the race and talked about the different animals. Thank you to Asha’s mum who brought in some real envelopes and decorations to look at! The children have really enjoyed learning about a different holiday and culture.
Each term the children in Reception draw a self portrait and sign it off with their name. We have been so impressed with how much they have improved since the beginning of the year in both their drawing and their writing. We also use this as an opportunity to discuss our similarities and differences. We look in the mirror as we draw, paying close attention to what we can see.
Each term in Reception the children do a piece of ‘drawing into writing’. They draw a picture of something they have done in the holidays and then write about with the help of an adults. We have been really impressed at the children’s communication skills and also their use of their sounds to write.
Today we hosted our very first whole-school workshare. Thank you to parents and carers for coming along and helping to celebrate all of our pupils’ amazing learning so far! We will be hosting a work-share towards the end of each half-term. We will keep everyone updated with future dates in our monthly school newsletter.
