Reception

 

Welcome to Reception!

 

Summer Term 2018.

 

We have been making the most of the lovely weather and the children have been delighted to explore more activities outside as the door is always open. Our topic is still 'All Creatures Great and Small', but this half term we are going 'Under the Sea'. We have our own rockpool outside and a discovery centre in the classroom where the children can learn lots of amazing facts about sea creatures and where we can handle different resources, listening to the sea through huge shells. The topic also lends itself to imaginative story telling and we are actively encouraging the children to make up their own stories. This topic will also lead up to a Pirates celebration where we plan to have fun partying with our big buddies. Here are some photos from the last few weeks.....

Mrs Eaton from Ainsdale Methodist Church helped us explore water and Baptism through another Godly Play session. The children had a go at baptising their own baby. Graham our vicar also took us into church where he showed us the font and big book full of babies' names. Thank you for sending in photos from your child's own baptism. This really helped the children relate to the theme.

We studied tadpoles and found out about the life cycle of frogs and butterflies

ICT- the children took an old laptop apart with the help of Mrs Potts and some screwdrivers to see what was inside....

Exploring the World and safely using tools. We made Bug Hotels which we have now placed down at Rainbow's End...we will be checking to see which creatures move in!

Our wonderful day at Farmer Ted's

Lots of practical maths activities have been helping the children develop their understanding in this area....

Numbers numbers everywhere....

Computer Programming

Computer Programming 1
Mrs Myers and the big buddies have been helping the children learn all about computer programming. The buddies help so much with mouse control and logging on - they have lots of time and patience as they help the children complete the different activities.

We loved dressing up so much during our Diwali activities! Miss O'Hagan has given us some amazing costumes so last week we had even more opportunities to use our imaginations.
