Look out Reception .... Here we come!
What a fabulous start to Reception! It has been lovely to see the children lining up so beautifully outside the classroom ready to start the school day and it has really helped their independence, finding their peg, hanging up their own belongings and putting their water bottle on the table before starting our morning Movers and Groovers – A favourite to start the day!
The children have been really busy forming friendships and developing relationships with adults in the class. It is lovely to see them all so confident and eager to share their experiences! They have also been exploring their new environment, enjoying the different areas and adapting to new rules and routines.
It’s been a busy half term and the children have enjoyed sharing our class book ‘Owl Babies’. It has been lovely to see them joining in with the text and reading along with the story. It also inspired some children to become an author to re- tell and write their own versions of the story using puppets.
The children have shown an interest in pirates this term, with lots of children making their own pirate maps and eye patches. We went on some exciting adventures with our trusty parrots on our shoulder, finding treasure around our inside and outside learning spaces.
We enjoyed our special Disney International Day this half term where we were able to learn about Colombia. The children found Colombia and South America on the map and listened to Colombian music, making their own musical instruments and dancing along! We also did our maths lesson in Spanish, learning the numbers to 10!
We ended the half term with a Thrive day, where we were able to celebrate all the things we love. We enjoyed our grown-ups coming into school to do some of the fun activities with us and to learn a bit more about Thrive.
We have really enjoyed getting to know the children and their families this half term and look forward to seeing what the next half term will bring!
