This week we have been looking at the story of the Three Little Pigs. We have been building houses using different materials and also we have been painting the houses.
We have also enjoyed retelling the story. 'Not by the hair on my chinny chin chin.'
Reception have had another really exciting week in class. We have been making ramps for our cars and enjoying the story of The Gingerbread Man. But one moment really stood out this week, where some children really persevered with a alphabet puzzle. They spent 30 minutes never giving up and trying their best to complete the puzzle. When they finally finished they gave a massive cheer and all the class gave them a big round of applause.
Reception really enjoyed our Shape, Space and Measure morning. We went around the school and looked for different shapes. We have also coloured in shapes, made shape patterns and drew our very own shapes. We are settling really well into our new class environment and all our teachers are really proud of how much we enjoying school. We also made our own troll bridges to go across the river. We had to really preservere as it was quite tricky but we never gave up. We always enjoy using the lego.
This has been our first full week in Reception. We have been enjoying staying into the afternoon and having lots more fun with our new friends. This week we have been doing lots of outdoor learning where we're have been making ramps for the cars. We have also been looking through books which gets us a picture on our, 'Look who got caught reading' display. We have also been making repeating patterns using the peg boards and making shapes from lollipop sticks.
This week in Reception class we have been getting to know each other and our environment. We have started our phonic sounds; ask your child if they can remember the sounds we have learnt this week.
We have enjoyed ending our day with yummy lunches and look forward to full days next week.
