Week 4 – We’re Going on a Bear Hunt
What a busy week we have had! The children have really been inspired by our class story. They enjoyed retelling the whole story and even wrote their own story maps. Other interests in class have been boats, including canal boats and ocean liners. The children were fascinated by the weather this week. They explored the wind by making their own kites and talked about their likes and dislikes of thunderstorms. The week ended in a teddy bears picnic and the children loved bringing their favourite teddy into school. The children have enjoyed learning our letter sounds this week.

Have a lovely weekend and don’t forget to go splashing in muddy puddles!
Week 5 – Oliver’s vegetables
Last week was filled with a lot of firsts and the children demonstrated a lot of bravery. On Tuesday we tried a variety of vegetables including radishes, beetroot, sugar snap peas and baby sweetcorn. The children all tried their best and surprised us with how willing they were to try the new vegetables. We encouraged them to use this skill in the dinner hall when they met a new food. In the afternoon we went to Harvest assembly and the children sat so beautifully for the performances. Everyone commented on how well we had listened and behaved. On Wednesday we took our shoes, socks and ties off to do PE. The experience was brand new for some of our children and took a little getting used to. Next week we will be getting changed into our PE kits. We painted our Christmas cards for parents to purchase and there were some amazing designs. We hope you will be very proud to purchase them and show off the children’s amazing art skills. Have a great week and keep up the great reading.
Week 6 – Funny Bones
This week we have enjoyed the story of funny bones. The children acted out the story, pretending to be the big skeleton, little skeleton and dog skeleton and what acting skills they had! It was a busy week in the Reception class garden; we found lots of worms and then lots of seeds to plant. We had another successful PE lesson with children listening carefully to instructions and a fun game of traffic lights.
