This week in Reception, the boys and girls have been building an obstacle course in the outdoor area. They used a variety of objects such as bricks, tyres, hoops and blocks. The children used their balancing skills to walk along the obstacle course.    


In Reception, we have been writing our numbers and counting natural objects. The boys and girls counted pom poms onto the numicon. They are getting very good with their counting skills.  


During plan, do and review, the boys and girls made a bus in the outdoor area. It even had stairs as it was a double decker bus. The children said it was the number 10 bus and it was going to Newcastle. They made signs and tickets for the bus. Everyone worked together as a team.


Wednesday was a very windy day so we decided to make kites. We took them on the school field to fly them. The children had lots of fun trying to keep their kite in the air.  


The children had lots of fun making funny faces with natural resources. We talked about what we would need such as some eyes, a nose, a mouth and some hair. The children’s ideas were fantastic.


This week, the boys and girls have enjoyed sharing their stories and pictures in their summer holiday books. It was great to see what everyone got up to during the summer. Thank you for all of your hard work!


We are so proud of how our Reception children have settled into school. Their first full week has been very busy! We have had fun both indoors and outdoors. The children enjoyed climbing on the adventure playground and exploring the different areas in the classroom.  


We have had a busy few days in Reception. The boys and girls have enjoyed settling into their new classroom and making new friends. They have been exploring the different areas and have been very creative.
