Reception Week of March 20th

NB: Apologies for the formatting of this post. Having problems getting images and text to go where I want it to go for some reason this week.

We started Well Being week off with some yoga, which the children said they enjoyed, and finished the week discussing and sorting foods into healthy and unhealthy. Miss Boby and I were impressed with the children’s awareness of foods containing too much sugar and which foods were good for them.

 

Sorting healthy/unhealthy foods

We have been seeing lots of lovely imaginative play this week. Role play, creating representations of our world, and even boys drawing pictures and painting!

 

William wrote a lablel for his models.

Outside we also observed the children taking their learning and problem solving skills into their own hands. The boys used magnifying glasses to observe the bugs and worms they found and want to make a wormery next week. Others used various resources to explore roads, ramps and tunnels or build using large blocks.

 

 

Brilliant large scale construction.

A few more: 

 

Next Week: We are looking at the Easter story and Easter traditions. We have a video of traditional egg rolling and would like to offer the children the opportunity to dye eggs and build their own ‘road’ to see how far they can get it to travel, based on observations this week of road building. The children can also design and decorate their own eggs using water colours, various materials. The role play area will be ‘An Easter party.’
In maths we are working on subtraction.

NOTE: Could children please bring in a HARD boiled egg. Please ensure it is hard boiled as one child has an allergy to raw egg.
If you have any Easter themed books we could share with the children please send them in (Put child’s name on inside cover please). We have the traditional Easter story and I have just purchased The Cow That Laid an Egg, BY Andy Cutbill, but I’m a bit thin on the ground for fun Spring/Easter themed stories.

ALSO: I’m still trying to build up a stock of guttering, down pipes, planks of wood for building outdoors (ideally scaffolding type planks) and any off cuts of soft woods for the woodwork area.
