Reception Latest News- Summer 1 Week 5

What a wonderful week we have had in the sunshine! We began our week reading the story ‘Rosie’s Walk’ where we explored the positional language used such as; across, around, through under and over. In our colour teams we then went on our own walk around the school grounds where we used the same language to describe our walk. The children enjoyed walking around the spinney, through the woodland and under the climbing frame! Inspired by the story, some children chose to create their own windmills with a moving part.

In PE, the children negotiated space safely as they took part in an obstacle course where they learnt to run along agility ladders. They showed good balance and coordination as they jumped over hurdles and practiced their jumping jacks on spots on the ground.

We are very excited this week as our caterpillars have finally formed their chrysalis. We are waiting patiently and hoping for some more changes soon!

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.
