Welcome to Reception Class
On World Book Day, we read an old favourite of ours, ‘Elmer’ by David McKee. After listening to the story the classroom had been set up with lots of fun Elmer themed activities for us to choose from, here are some of them.
Busy busy, busy, looking out for signs of Spring!
Reception have been thoroughly enjoying their weekly music and movement classes called Boogie Beats led by Cat with her companion Giggles the monkey. The sessions are energetic, fun and combine music and dance based around a different theme each week. So far we have learnt about transport, hibernation and fireworks.
The classes help the children to develop their confidence, coordination and social skills whilst they learn to express themselves in a friendly and relaxed environment. It’s lots of fun and the children as well as the adults joining in love it!
Reception had a fun packed Christmas which started with a traditional Nativity Play performance followed by a Christmas themed ‘Make and Take’ session with their families. We had Father Christmas’ Workshop set up in the classroom as a role-play experience, went to the church for a Christmas service, had a class Christmas party and also visit from Father Christmas himself!
It’s fun in ‘The Secret Garden’, exploring, digging for treasure, mark making and cooking in the mud kitchen...
We are getting to know each other and making new friends!
