Ducklings - Reception

We have had an amazing start to the term. The children are confident and happy to come into school, which is a real blessing. Miss Ballard and I will be spending the first few weeks getting to know the children by providing activities which allow us and them to ask questions and provide observations.

 

Tapestry is up and running and hopefully will prove to be a success and show parents and family what the children have been learning with us at school. 

 

In Reception we have no set topics for the year as we believe that it supports the children's engagement by learning through subjects that interest them.

Welly walk - We had planned to go on Thursday for our walk but the weather kept tricking us into thinking it was nice. So as a bonus we went for a longer walk on Friday. We worked in pairs to find the objects on the scavenger hunt list. The children were absolute stars and worked together well.

Squiggle While You Wiggle - This week we have started doing Squiggle While You Wiggle. As you can see we have a very long piece of paper and all the children gather round armed with a pencil. Then with music playing we do lots of drawing using gross motor movements. All this helping to prepare us for writing.

Exploring the frosty morning!- We made the most of our first hard frost by dressing up nice and warm and going outside. The children loved looking at the patterns the frost had created and we talked about why it was frosty. The children also worked out why the ice turned back to water when they rubbed their hands on it.
