Bears Learning Unit
This week Reception have started their new learning unit on 'Bears'. We asked the children what they already knew about this topic as well as what they would like to find out. The children came up with lots of interesting questions such as 'Do bears eat fish fingers?', 'Do bears have black tongues?' and 'Where do bears live?'
Miss Clark's class enjoyed sharing the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears this week. We have been building furniture for the bears using construction, making porridge, acting out the story using puppets and retelling the story.
Miss Duffield's class have read the story 'The Teddy Bears Picnic' and have enjoyed making sandwiches, collaging large bears and having our own picnic.
Please ask your child what they have enjoyed most about their first week of learning about bears.
Reception children have recently started their daily dough disco sessions. During the session, we complete different actions along to music to support the children's fine motor development, which in turn will help to develop their writing skills.
As you can see from our photos, the children love to pinch, poke, roll and squeeze their playdough.
If you would like to have a go at home, there is a recipe for homemade playdough below.
Autumn 1 - Starting School
This half term Reception started our first learning unit called ‘All About Me.’ We have been getting to know the routines and expectations at school and sharing our interests. The children have enjoyed reading stories such as ‘But Martin!’, ‘Topsy and Tim Start School’ and ‘Hugless Douglas Starts Little School.’ We discussed the importance of making good choices and created our own set of classroom rules.
We have enjoyed talking about being a good friend and loved hearing how ‘The Rainbow Fish’ shared his scales. We have worked together with our talk partner to create our own houses, rockets and sea creatures and have had lots of fun playing a variety of team games.
