It’s been another busy week in Reception, it’s hard to believe that we are almost two thirds of the way through the year!
In RE this week, the children have been learning about the Last Supper and thinking how we are reminded of this story every week in church when we receive Holy Communion. They also spent a long time examining and talking about the painting, ‘The Last Supper’ by Leonardo Da Vinci, one of the most famous paintings in the world.
With the help of the adults, the children role played receiving Holy Communion themselves.
The children then demonstrated their understanding of the story through role play, writing their own versions, painting the story and building their own Last Supper scenes with junk modelling materials and other large and small construction.
The weather yesterday was glorious and so we took the opportunity to take the PE lesson with Mr Dugan outside. The children enjoyed participating in some team games that focussed on developing their throwing and catching skills.
You should have received an email to activate your Tapestry account on Tuesday. Thank you to the parents who have already activated and have liked and made comments about their child’s learning already!
Please add your own observations and photos- remember only you and the Reception staff can see your child’s account, so don’t worry about getting it wrong! Your observations will help the staff to have an all round picture of your child, which will help when they come to make final judgements against the early Learning Goals at the end of next term.
Wishing you all a lovely weekend and a wonderful Mother’s Day.
Mrs Theo and Mrs Gymer
