Reception Latest News- Summer 2- Week 1

The children have enjoyed being back at school and sharing their half term news with their peers. We began the week learning the poem ‘Our wildlife’. We talked about the rhyming words we could hear and closed our eyes to imagine we were in a woodland. The children came up with their own actions to help them learn the poem and have explored new words such as ‘scuttle, soar, hover, and scamper’. Throughout the week, the children have become ‘poets’ themselves as they wrote their own version of the poem. We had some fantastic ideas such as ‘glide like a bird’, ‘march like ants and crunch like a caterpillar’.

The children have enjoyed taking part in an orienteering activity this week through the woodland. They followed the path to find pictures of mini beasts and had different questions to solve. They worked brilliantly in teams.

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.
