This week we have been sent a book from Supertato.
We predicted what we thought the book may be about and used pictures as clues. We then investigated further and found out that it was a book about nursery rhymes.
We found lots of nursery rhymes, some that we knew already and some that we found out about. We then used some actions to develop Humpty Dumpty, 5 little ducks, 10 fat sausages and Incy wincy spider!
As part of our writing focus we have been recording our favourite nursery rhymes and explaining why!
Ask us what our favourite was and how we have been working on them this week - we even created an evil pea game to practise!
This week we have been continuing with our work on learning our new environments and have been carrying out initial phonic and maths work. One of our favourite stories so far is Supertato - we really like the evil pea!
We have started to look at ways that we can help Supertato to capture the evil pea and have created jails and traps!
We have really enjoyed learning how to make dens with the big blocks and how to keep safe!
Welcome to Reception!
What an amazing first week we have had. The children have all worked hard on investigating their new environment. Each day they have talked about what they have enjoyed and what they want to learn next.
We have been into the hall and worked on our listening skills during our movement activities and had a great time!
Some of the things that we have enjoyed most were discussed at the end of the sessions......
I loved working with the horses and making a station for them.
I enjoyed making a story in the bridge area
I enjoy building
I loved working in the den area
The water area is fun!
I enjoy dressing up and playing in the house
We have been very proud of how well the children settled in and have really enjoyed working with them.
Thank you for all your help and support in settling them into school.
