Reception News Summer 2 – Week 6

Reception News WB 11.7.22

This week we were very excited to visit our new Year 1 classrooms. The children met a Year 1 buddy who showed them around the classroom.  They explored the inside and outside areas with their buddies who showed them where all the resources are kept.  The children then had some time to ask their buddies any questions they had about the learning in Year 1. The children can’t wait to start their next chapter at Malvern Way.

Later in the week the children were very lucky to have a visit from the School Sports Partnership Team who led all the Reception classes through various activities to help develop their strength, agility and co-ordination.  We all had lots of fun challenging ourselves in these areas.

We ended the week watching our friends take part in a karate and hip hop assembly. We all enjoyed the experience and were inspired by their skills and confidence.

This week the children have all enjoyed their first woodwork sessions. First they explored the safety aspects of woodwork including the importance of safety goggles and safe use of tools. They used a variety of different size and thickness of balsa wood, different sized nails and a variety of mixed media such as bottle tops, corks and beads for their creations. They also learned how to use a Japanese saw safely with an adult. The children had lots of fun exploring and we were very impressed with their creations.

This week in maths, we learnt about patterns. We had to identify patterns but also create patterns ourselves. We noticed that a pattern could be made in lots of different ways. For example, you could make a one by alternating two types of shape or by changing the colour of just one shape.
