Mrs Mayman & Miss Pinchin
Welcome to the Reception Class Page!
Keep checking this page to see all the fun things that we have been up to!
Last week we had a new visitor to Reception. Spike had managed to curl up and snuggle down in one of our covers until he was found by Mrs Hussain. We didn’t want to disturb him so we decided to move him carefully into the wildlife area where he could have some peace and quiet.
We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who managed to take part in our Inspire Morning fun. We had such a lovely morning and the work produced was fantastic!
Take a look at some of the photos…
Let’s Get Measuring!
We have been learning about measuring this week. We have been measuring ourselves with string and then our teachers set us a challenge to find things in our environment that were taller or shorter than us. We had to make sure we were being really accurate when measuring the string. Some of us got really clever and started to predict which objects would be taller or shorter.
We had so much fun building a den together for the first time. We had to work as a team to work out how to get the equipment to fit together securely. We had lots of problems along the way and kept having a ‘team meeting’ to sort out what we could do to improve things. We decided that it looked like a castle. Some children then went to make crowns and tiaras in the modelling area. Just look at King Thomas on the throne – doesn’t he look posh! We had so much fun!
Roald Dahl Day!
We had a brilliant day celebrating Roald Dahl day. We all came dressed up as a character from our favourite book. We did a fashion show and loved showing off our spectacular outfits! We spent time listening to different stories and worked as team and learnt some phrases from them. All the children dressed a Matilda loved shouting ‘But I just want to go to school!’ (In a wonderful American accent!) We loved making golden tickets for the chocolate factory in our modelling area. What a fun filled day!
Our first week….
The children have all settled beautifully into Reception. They are all busy making new friends and learning how to use all the different areas of provision. We had so much fun playing in all the outside area. We collected all the water into the buckets using the water ramps, we worked as a team and built a climbing frame, we drove our super ‘cool car’ and loved playing ‘bowling’ with our tyres! What a lot of fun!
