This week we looked at the book "Can't you sleep little bear?" In the story little bear can't sleep as he is scared of the dark. Big Bear gives Little Bear lanterns but he is stilled scared of the dark all around him. The children discussed what helps them to sleep and we looked at a range of old lanterns before making our own out of junk box modelling.
As it was Bonfire night this week we have been busy thinking about fireworks. We have explored the different sounds that they make and have enjoyed making our own fireworks pictures using lots of different art materials. We also wrote some group poems.
Term 2: Week 1
This week we have been learning about Diwali. The children listened to the story of Rama and Sita and have made their own Diva lamps using clay and coloured rice.
Week 5: This week we have had some fantastic work in our construction site. The children created their own car wash using the crates and bricks. They then rode their bikes through the car wash.
Week 3: This week in Reception we began "word time" in our phonics lessons. We listen Fred the frog as he sounds out a word to us and then watch as our grown ups show us the word using the sound cards. We then use magnets to make the word ourselves and then point and sweep to read it. Finally we have a go at writing the words in our books.
Week 2: We have been very busy this week. We have enjoyed lots of outdoor learning.
Finley created a road block in the bike area after seeing the road block on Nash Road. He made a sign to tell the bikes that they needed to stop.
We have also enjoyed exploring portraits using paints and the transient art resources. The children really impressed us with the detail that they used.
