Welcome to Reception Class!
Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let your Teacher know!
Our story this week has been 'Construction Destruction'. and this has led us into a lot of thinking about playgrounds. We have talked about how to look after ourselves and others on the playground. We have made playground collages by cutting out and sticking pictures of playground equipment and then we made playground equipment using lollipop sticks!
In phonics we have been thinking about the sounds s and a. We have been thinking about different words and objects that begin with these sounds and have been familiarising ourselves with what these sounds look like when they are written down.
We have been counting a lot this week as well! We also began our Maths Mastery this week, and we have been finding out lots about the number 1.
This week we have read the story of Pete the Cat, who was 'Rocking in his school shoes' and finding out all about his new school. We decided to rock in our own school shoes, and we visited lots of different places in our new school. We then printed off the photos we took and used the photos to mark make.
We also painted pictures of Pete the Cat and decorated his school shoes using lots of interesting creative materials. We thought a lot about lunchtimes and food, and cut out and stuck pictures of food on to plates. We have continued to explore the different areas of our new classroom, and had lots of fun using all our classroom resources in interesting ways!
Reception have had a fantastic first full week at school! We have enjoyed getting to know each other and exploring our classroom.
