It’s been another very busy week in Reception!
We started the week off by reading the book ‘Joan Procter, Dragon Doctor’ alongside the rest of the school. This proved to be a real hit with the children and shaped the learning that followed for the rest of the week.
Joan knew that she wanted to be a scientist from a very young age and that got the children thinking about what they would like to be when they are grown up. There was a lot of interest and excitement during discussion about this particular topic! Each child then painted a beautiful portrait of their future self which will be available for all to see during the celebration morning in a couple of week’s time.
Reception class were also very keen to have a vets role play, so that they could look after the animals, just like Joan Procter. This proved to be an extremely popular learning area and so the children decided to start a register, so that every one got a turn. What a great way to practise writing names!
On Tuesday, the class had lots of fun participating in a skipping workshop. It is a very tricky skill to master, however there were a lots of examples of children using their learning power- having a go and not giving up! Lots of children then applied this new skill during Child Initiated Learning throughout the rest of the week.
In RE this week, Reception have been learning about what it takes to be a ‘Steward of the Earth’ and ways that they can help God’s creation. The adults around the school were so impressed with their ideas!
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend,
Mrs Theo and Mrs Gymer
