It’s a pleasure to have the new children in reception, they are excited and enjoying getting to know their new environment. They have had their first couple of weeks in school and they are learning the day to day routines.
The children are discovering a variety of learning opportunities where they put in to practice ideas of sharing, turn taking and being creative such as the mud kitchen, sand pit area, water area, the performance area, the digging area and so much more!
Our Reception children were really excited to have their lunch in school. They were all able to follow the rules and behaviour of getting ready to go to lunch in the hall and how to behave once in the hall. We were happy to see most of our children try a variety of different food from our school meals and they are having a go and trying to finish their food.
We have been exploring Early Years pre-writing activities where the children learn rhymes and draw patterns. This helps them to develop the skill of writing from left to right, pencil handling and control.
In maths we have started looking at Early Mathematical experiences where we have been classifying and sorting a variety of objects into various groups and adding similar objects to a group.
