Week Beginning 12/3/18

It has been a busy and exciting week in Reception this week.  The week started with ‘The Teeny Weeny Tadpole’ and a trip to the pond to go pond dipping where we collected some of our very own frog spawn.  We will watch these grow into tadpoles and put them back into the pond soon.  At the end of the week we had some very exciting visitors arrive, our very own caterpillars! Just in time too as we were reading ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’.  We were busy making potions using the fruits from the story to help the caterpillar feel better.

AND… we filled up our marble jar too! What a busy week.  Children chose to have a movie afternoon with popcorn or fruit.  Well done again Reception, you are working so hard!

Week Beginning 5/3/18

In Reception this week children have been learning about minibeasts and went on a minibeast hunt around the school on Wednesday.  After reading ‘Superworm’ children created their own potions and wrote recipes in potion bottles in order to save Superworm from Wizard Lizard.  We also read ‘The Bad-Tempered Ladybird’ and understand how we can calm down when we feel bad-tempered.  We discuss the importance of having friends and how to be kind.

Week Beginning 19/2/18

This week in Reception children have been reading ‘The Enormous Turnip’ and ‘Oliver’s Vegetables’.  After reading ‘The Enormous Turnip’ children worked together to complete lots of different activities to understand the importance of working as a team and helping each other. Later in the week after reading ‘Oliver’s Vegetables’ children learnt a song to help them remember the days of the week. We used this song to order the days of the week and sequence the vegetables Oliver tried on each day. We discussed the fact that not all children like the same things and that this is ok.  Some children made careful observational paintings of the vegetables from the story and chose colours carefully to match each vegetable.
