Reception

ICT 

In Reception we have been looking at beebots. We needed to tell the beebot which direction it needed to go by giving it  instructions. We programmed it by pressing buttons and spaces. It was lots of fun. 

Planting!

We have been learning all about plants. We are able to talk about the different places that we will find plants. We have also been learning about the different parts of a plant and can name the stem, root, leaf and petal. 

We also enjoyed planting our own sunflower seeds and learning about how they grow. 

Team Games Outside We enjoyed exploring the sunshine and playing some team games on the field. We practised lots of skills inclduing throwing, catching, jumping and running.

Our first term in Reception

 

The reception children have really enjoyed their first term in 'big school'! We have been learning about lots of different topics including All About Me, Traditional Tales and Julia Donaldson books. We are so impressed at the progress that all of the children have made over this term. They have all been superstars and have settled in really well. Here are some pictures of the children in Miss Mellor's class and Miss Foster's class having fun in the different areas in their classrooms. 

Numberblocks

 

In reception we love using the Numberblocks to learn about our numbers to 10. This term we have been learning numbers 1 to 7. We have explored different ways to make each number and have learnt how to write addition and subtraction number sentences. 

 

If you would like to support your child further at home you can find Numberblocks games, songs and quizzes on the Cbeebies website.

PE

 

In PE this term we have been playing lots of listening games and we have been practising moving around the hall in different ways. Some of our favourite games have been the bean game and traffic lights. Miss Foster and Miss Mellor have been really impressed at how independent the children are becoming at getting themselves changed before and after PE. Below are some pictures of Miss Foster's class enjoying one of their PE lessons. They listened carefully to the instructions and were very good at moving between the cones without knocking them over. 

Outdoor Learning

 

We are very lucky in reception to have such a fantastic outdoor space to use. The reception children spend time playing in our outdoor area each day developing their physical skills such as balancing, climbing, throwing and catching. Here are some photos of the children having fun playing with their friends outside.

Reminder - Just a quick reminder that weekly phone calls home will no longer take place. If you would like us to call, please let us know via the year group email and we will ring as soon as we can. Usual contact via the class emails will continue.
