In PE the children have been experimenting with different ways of moving. They enjoyed adjusting their speed or changing direction to avoid obstacles.
In reception we have been learning about space this half term. The children have really impressed us with their knowledge - they have been able to tell us lots of facts about space and even name some of the planets! Here are some of the things we have been up to during this topic. The children have enjoyed role playing as astronauts and writing about what they would take to space. We even had a visit from an alien!
LA - We played a new song from the Caribbean called 'Sally, Sally Water'. The children responded excitedly as they could choose their friend to dance with in the middle: Sally, Sally Water, sprinkle in the saucer. Rise, Sally, Rise, Sally Rise and wipe your eyes. Sally turn to the East. Sally turn to the West. Sally turn to the very one that you will love the best. [Child to choose a friend to take into the middle of the circle.] Dance around and dance around and dance a-round. Dance around and dance around and dance a-round. (5 Photos)
MA - We learned an English song from History called 'London Bridge'. We looked at choosing which side of the bridge we wanted to be part of when we were captured by the closing bridge. (4 Photos)
HA - We sang and moved to the song, 'In and out the dusty Bluebells'. We worked hard on weaving in and out the circle aka dusty bluebells. (4 Photos)

Miss Mellor's class had a fun week last week reading the story of The Gruffalo. We learned about what the Gruffalo's home in the woodland is like and went on a walk around our school grounds to see what we could find in our own environment in Autumn. The children then enjoyed making their own Gruffalo masks.
The children enjoyed solving the problem of matching the numicon pieces to the correct bus. They then counted the dots and matched them to the correct number. The children made their own bus by adding two numicon pieces together and found the total.
The children have been so excited to use our new climbing frame in the outdoor area. The children are now using their spacial awareness to control their movements before they move to a new part of the frame.
The children have been learning about the different houses we have in our town. They then made a picture of their house using the shapes in the art and craft area.
