Welcome Back Reception!
For the final weeks of the Spring term, we welcomed back the children who had been learning at home. It was great to see them all and everyone was excited to be back together again!
To mark the occasion, we set up a photo booth in the classroom which provided lots of fun and giggles. The children used the iPads to select the camera and take photos of each other.
The children also enjoyed creating their own patterns and designs to create their very own Reception Rock (except we used a wooden discs!) They enjoyed hiding them around the Reception garden for their friends to find and hunting for them.
To celebrate all children returning to school we decided to delay World Book Day so we could enjoy the event together. The classroom was full of wonderful animals, creatures and characters from their favourite stories. The children had lots of fun at our socially distanced Teams Assembly where they showed off their costumes and completed a quiz all about Traditional Tales.
The children also returned to find presents that had been hidden around the Reception garden. Each day they would find a new present. A garden gnome had been leaving them cards and letters. The gnome gave them new equipment for the digging area.
The children really enjoyed our class book ‘On the Way Home’. They listened carefully to the story and enjoyed joining in. After listening carefully to the story, they were able to sequence the story. They became actors and actresses and took on the role of Claire, using their imagination to make up a story of what happened to their knee!
The children have also enjoyed developing their understanding of number. They have been exploring different ways to make 10.
We are really looking forward to our learning this term!
