Reception Latest News- Summer 2- Week 2

Yet another week of wonderful sunshine! The children have been busy practising their races in preparation for Sports Day and have been supporting one another wonderfully. The children have been very responsible and taking turns to get to the poly tunnel to help water our plants and vegetables, they are very excited to observe that the flowers have started to appear and are looking forward to observing more changes over the next couple of weeks.

We revisited Austin’s butterfly this week, where we followed the process of ‘Austin’s Butterfly’. The children carefully sketched their own butterflies using clear lines and shapes and added shading for detail. We had some very beautiful sketches and could see excellent progression from the Spring term.

The children have enjoyed watching the chicks as they have started to grow their adult feathers and visiting the school coop during the day to enjoy the sunshine. They have been helping to look after them, giving them fresh water and food each day and helping to clean out their coop.

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.
