Reception Latest News – Autumn 1 Week 5

We began this week with a whole class art session where we learnt to use clear lines and shapes to draw our self-portraits. This was the first time we had used 2B pencils and our new Malvern Way sketch pads, we were all proud of the end results.

In PE this week we continued to develop our independent dressing skills and explored a variety of tuck and star shapes in a seated and standing position.

Later in the week we explored more areas of the school, first we visited the woodland where we saw trees, badger setts, a den and even a dragon. We ended the week with a visit to the pond and surrounding areas where we talked about pond life, plants and birds.
