Welcome to Reception!
Reception team: Jordan Cockette (Teacher), Kayley Ship (Teacher), Louisa Baker (TA) & Ann Litchfield (TA).
We have been busy in Reception this half term celebrating different events and preparing for Christmas!
For Halloween, the children have been counting spooky objects and recording numbers. They have also been making bats using different tools and materials. In the role play we have been dressing as witches and making potions.
We really enjoyed the fireworks at the High School for Bonfire Night. We explored creating our own fireworks using a range of media and materials. The children have tried to independently record words describing fireworks. In Forest School we ate marshmallows and made a Guy Fawkes.
For Remembrance Day, we made a large poppy collage using different red materials. The children used their cutting and sticking skills and arranged the pieces. We also created a 1940's school role play and a hospital role play.
For Thanksgiving we made sweet potato pies! We measured out ingredients and used the balances. We then ate them altogether and discussed the taste with our friends.
Reception had an important visit from Tinsel the elf on December 1st. She brought a bag full of books with her. Each book had a number on and was to be opened each day.
All of the children worked extremely hard throughout the weeks leading to Christmas making calendars, Christmas cards, clay Christmas decorations and rehearsing for their Nativity!
We are all looking forward to next half term! We will be learning about 'Water'.
