Today in Reception we’ve been on an autumn hunt where we’ve explored the forest looking for the different signs of autumn. On our autumn hunt, we were given a checklist of things to find. These included a pine cone, conker, red leaf, fungi, berries and many more other signs of autumn. As a class, we have discussed the similarities and differences of the different seasons as well as describing the objects we found on our walk. We will be building on our autumn knowledge next week when we explore the book ‘Leaf Man.’
Reception have had an incredible time exploring the different religions and cultures the world has to offer this week. Alongside the African mask workshop, African dance workshop, samba drumming workshop and the Indian dance workshop, the children have had the opportunity to construct different religious buildings such as a mosque, church, synagogue and Mandir. The children have also looked at maps to see where we live in relation to the rest of the world as well as creating flags from different countries. What has been the highlight of your week Reception?
Miss Venner 🙂
We’ve had an amazing first week in Reception 🙂
We’ve played with the water, the sand, made birthday stars and even learnt some new songs and dance routines.
Miss Venner and Mrs Bennison are soooooooooo happy that you’ve joined our Lostock family and we are looking forward to spending this year with you 🙂
Reception have been having a fabulous time at their forest school sessions. So far we have made journey sticks, we have made rafts and watched them float, we made magic wands and we have used the bit and brace to make tree cookies.
We also love our free time where we have been den building, making ninja stars and playing lots of games. Here are some pictures of our super learning so far.
Over the past couple of days, Reception have been getting ready for the Royal Wedding. We have been making cards to send to Prince Harry and Meghan, wishing them a very happy wedding day. Miss Alexander is going to send our cards off. We have also been designing a wedding cake for the big day as well as a dress for a Meghan and a suit for Prince Harry. We have had lots of royal fun!
This week we are thinking all about Spring, this morning we have been on a Spring walk. On our walk we used our eyes to look, our ears to hear and even our nose to smell. We spotted lots of signs of Spring.
We saw buds on the trees and leaves starting to grow, we saw beautiful pink and yellow flowers. We heard the birds tweeting and we heard a buzzing bee. We used our nose to smell some of the beautiful flowers.
