It has been a very busy week in Reception Class!
On Monday, the children had an online road safety session with the Hertfordshire road safety team. The interactive session covered the important themes of:
- Seatbelt safety
- The dangers of traffic/the road
- Getting into the car on the pavement side
- The pavement being the safest part of the street
The children have also been thinking about the people around us that help and serve our local community. They learnt about the importance of key workers and as a result, have expressed a lot of interest in the emergency services and in particular, the role of the police. The children helped to create a role play police station, where they had lots of fun booking in prisoners, looking for criminals and taking 999 calls.
This theme spilled into the outside area, where the children were inspired to independently build police vehicles and prisons.
The children also enjoyed creating disguises, building police stations from construction, making emergency vehicles and police props.
Yesterday, Donnie’s mum came into class to talk about her role as a nurse. Thank you so much!
Finally, this morning as part of the RE lesson, Reception went outside for a walk in the school grounds to refelect on the story of creation. They used their senses to explore and appreciate the beauty of God’s creation all around them.
Next week, we will be opening a Tapestry account for each child in the class, following our initial assessments. You will be sent an email with a link to your child’s account which you will need to activate. In the past, this has ended up in parent’s junk email, so please remember to check the folder over the week. We will also send home a parent’s guide, with instructions on how to add your own photos and special family moments for you to share with us.
Have a lovely weekend,
The Reception Team
