This week in Reception children have been reading ‘Here We Are’ by Oliver Jeffers.  The story looks at where we are and shows us how we belong.  Children have been thinking about what makes their world wonderful and particularly enjoyed an introduction to Sir David Attenbrough.  In Phonics we have been practising reading and writing using the sounds ‘s, a and t’.  The children really enjoyed making toast as part of their learning!  We have been practising counting by making sure we point carefully to objects as we count them; the children enjoyed arranging and counting natural objects from the woods.

This week we have been learning about the stories that are associated with our group names so we have enjoyed reading Elmer, The Hungry Caterpillar, Kipper, Rainbow Fish and The Gruffalo.  We have been impressed with the children’s listening skills and how they are able to retell the stories they have heard.  Reception have been very motivated to complete the challenges we have set them relating to each story- keep up the good work Reception!  We have also been continuing to enjoy our time in the grounds and have been looking at conker shells, conkers and talking about all the creatures and seeds that we have been finding.

We have had another wonderful week in Reception.  The children have enjoyed staying for lunch; we have been impressed with how independent they have been with making their meal choices and eating their lunch- good work Reception!

Even though we had a very rainy start to the week the children enjoyed singing in the rain and were very motivated in their first PE lesson.

The children have been brilliant at completing a full school day; an afternoon highlight was visiting our meadow.  We found a baby frog (and learnt it was called a froglet), we also looked at the different types of leaves on the meadow floor and made some pictures using what we had found.  Well done Reception for being so enthusiastic in your learning.

Reception have had a wonderful start to school this week! The children have settled well into routines and expectations and have started to develop lots of positive relationships. They have really enjoyed getting to know each other (and we have really enjoyed getting to know them!)  and they have become familiar with their classroom.  Highlights this week have included playing in our role play area, enjoying the outside area, exploring the castle and playing games in our circle on the carpet.
