We have got one more week to go that brings us to the end of an amazing first term in reception. Last week we completed lots of amazing activities and tasks that helped us in our learning. We continued to work on our book Room on a broom. Here are some of the amazing activities!!!
Broom stick races
We flew as fast as we could across the astro and tried to beat our friends in the super witch championship races!
We mixed together baking soda, vinegar, glitter, washing up liquid and food colouring. We made our own potions that exploded!!!!
We worked on our cutting skills and cut out different shapes to make witches. We looked at a picture to show us what the finished withes should look like.
We had so much fun using rolling pins and golf tee to smash holes into our pumpkins. Activities like this help to develop our fine motor skills.
We have had lots of fun again this week in reception. We have been working hard in lots of different ways. This week we discussed our favorite TV programmes. We did this by talking in talk partners and sharing our ideas with the class.
After we discussed our favorite programmes we then used democracy to vote for our class favorite.
We also had a go at working on the ICT software 'busy things'. We had lots of fun completing maths games. It is sometimes hard to take turns and wait patiently but this is something we are all working on.
The most exciting thing this week has been our new role play area! We are so excited to be able to play in our very own Mc Donalds.
This week we have been very busy in RC. We have been reading a new Julia Donaldson book which is call The smartest Giant in town. We have loved reading this book and have done lots of work about it.
We have talk about where the giant lives and who his friends are. We have talked about how the giant felt in the story. We have also done some beautiful giant paintings that we are going to put up on a wall in the classroom.
This week have also had lots of fun in the outdoor area! It was a cold and windy day so we made special dens that sheltered us from the rain. It was SOOOOOOOOOO much fun!
We also had the most amazing time in our forest school area. We had our snack in the teepee and listen to a story. Then we ran around and made wands out of sticks and colorful string.
We have had another fun filled week in reception this week. We have settled in nicely in our new class and have made lots of new friends.
This week we have been doing lots of maths work. We have been practising counting all the way up to 20. . It was lots of fun! We are superstar counters!
We have also been practicing our repeated patterns. We did this on our interactive white board.
In reception we like spending time in the outdoor area. This week Miss Carroll took us into the wild area where we made bird feeders and looked for bugs. We had lots of fun and cannot wait untill we do it again next week.
Next week we are going to be reading a new Julia Donaldson story so watch this space to see what it is.
The blog will be updated every week so please come and see what fabulous things we will get up to next week!!!
We have had a very exciting few weeks in reception so far. We are all very exciting about our new classes and can not wait to find out what the new year will bring!
