Spring 2- What could it be? (Stanley's Stick)

Busy using our imaginations...what could the stick be?

We have been learning to work as a team in PE with our new game ‘Stanley’s Stick’, each ‘stick’ had to stay with ‘Stanley’ at all times and even copy the movements!

Our group stick poems 📝

We have loved learning anout 3D shapes this week! We have been on a 3D shape hunt around school, even sneaking in some KS2 classrooms whilst they did PE! How many 3D shapes can you find at your house?

Did Granny have an iPad? 🤔📱

This term, we are busy exploring lots of different toys using our new book Knuffle Bunny. We have been sorting toys into groups of new and old, looking at the similarities and differences between different toys and thinking about our favourite toys and games.

Children in Need 💰🐻🙌

We had lots of fun raising money for Children in Need, we explored lots of colours, spots and stripes and even made our own Pudsey Bears. As a school, we raised £186 for such a worthy cause. Thank you so much for your kind donations 💕

❤️Celebrating Remembrance Day 2018 ❤️

In Reception, we paid our respects to the fallen soldiers with a morning of lots of Remembrance activities. We were extremely lucky to have a very special picture to look at too, the children very respectful and took part in a minutes silence to remember those who lost their lives at war. ❤️💕❤️

Welcome to Reception!

 

In The Early Years Foundation Stage, the children follow a play-based curriculum that will provide them with the opportunities to

 

· Develop their confidence, independence and social interaction

· Encounter a range of new and exciting experiences, through the power of play

· Build upon the skills they have as they leave the home environment to start school

· Develop these skills as an individual

· Prepare for the next stage in their primary school education

 

Throughout the school day, the children will learn in a range of different ways. Through whole class focused group work, small group learning, adult-led activities, child-led activities and independent play.

 

Please find additional details about this academic year below.
