RECEPTION LEARNING JOURNEY

 

On Friday Reception and Year 4 took part in ‘paired reading’.  Every Friday reception choose a library book to take home to share with their family; Year 4 enjoyed sharing the books with Reception before they took them home.  We all really enjoyed the session and are looking forward to doing it again next week.


 

 

 

Reception Class visited ‘Susan’s Farm’ at Houghton. We saw lots of different farm animals and enjoyed splashing in muddy puddles!

 

This week we in Reception we have been learning about the Bible story ‘Noah’s Ark’.  We have enjoyed recreating the story with the wooden ark.

In gymnastics we have been developing our skills of jumping and landing safely.  We pretended to be different ‘desert animals’; when we did star jumps we were kangaroos – we jumped with our arms and legs out wide together.

In Art we loved creating art on the light table; transient art (art without glue!). We enjoyed creating patterns with the shiny beads, sticks and shells.

 

Who is the tallest?

We built towers and compared the height of them. Who had the tallest tower? Who had the shortest tower? We had a very special delivery which came inside a very tall box. It was a giraffe!


Looking after our teeth

We brought our toothbrushes into school and practised brushing our teeth. We know why we need to brush our teeth in the morning and at night. A few children have lost a tooth and enjoyed telling their peers about their experience of the tooth fairy visiting them!


Our Local Environment

We enjoy exploring our local environment every Friday. Together, we made a map of our journey and use this in our provision areas. Visiting Stocks Wood brought the story of Dear Mr Postman to life.


Making and Baking


Baking in our school kitchen is lots of fun. We practise rolling, mixing, pouring, grating and cutting. Our Pudsey Bear biscuits and fruit kebabs were delicious!


Learning Through Play

There are many exciting areas to explore in our continuous provision. We develop many skills in these areas and love talking about our learning.
