Autumn Term 1 - Week 3 – 15 September 2021

We have had a lot of fun in Reception this week. The children have been taking part in speaking and listening activities about themselves and learning about the other children in their new class. We have read some books during story time about starting school and discussed any worries that the children may have. We have created hand prints to show that we are all unique and we have used different materials to create a collage of ourselves. We used mirrors to look at our colour of skin, hair and eyes. We have been counting, playing circle games and singing lots of songs and nursery rhymes. This week the children have started to have their lunch in the hall and have continued to learn the routines that we follow in Reception such as finding their peg in the morning, lining up for lunch, putting their belongings in their tray and sitting in their carpet space.

The children are doing incredibly well with settling into their new class and routine and we continue to be very proud of them 😊

Autumn Term  1- Week 2 - 8 September 2021

We are incredibly impressed and proud of the children and how well they have settled into Reception this week. We have had lots of fun exploring the different areas in the classroom and in our outside area. The children have been busy painting portraits of themselves, matching numbers, singing songs, making mud cakes in our mud kitchen and designing new buildings in our ‘builders yard’. The children are beginning to learn some of the rules and routines in Reception and have enjoyed making new friends. It has been a pleasure getting to know the children and their little personalities and we look forward to learning more about each and every child in the coming weeks and as they start their school journey with us. We hope that you and they have a restful weekend and we look forward to welcoming you back on Monday.
