All about Reception ...

What we have been learning ...Notices and letters ...Useful links ...

The first half term back after Christmas was a busy one, in Reception. We began our ‘Into the Woods’ theme with children creating a selection of bears, trees and caves to decorate our classroom and create our own woods. It was lovely hearing all about children’s holidays and celebrations – we linked this to our work on time and talked about similarities and differences between ourselves in Key Group.

We read the story of ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear’ and made our own rhyming string biscuits and books to show the sequence of our day.  Our next text was ‘Where Bear?’ about a bear looking for a new home. We had great fun making new beds for the bear and his friends, using our measuring skills to make sure they fitted.

As the weather had got really cold, we decided we should try to help the birds outside so made some feeders in Key Group. We all helped make the Three Bears’ Cottage ready for our next book – ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ and enjoyed acting out the story and taking on character roles in it. We had a special treat of Mummy Bear’s Rice Pudding but were shocked when it vanished and we had to use our investigation skills to find clues and make wanted posters to try and get it back. We used our calculation skills to work out how many bowls were left. Parents/carers came into class to share activities that we had been doing and look at how our learning is progressing.

Lots of us had been to Chinese New Year celebrations so we wanted to find out more about it in school – we made a Chinese Restaurant roleplay and enjoyed looking at a display of real artefacts from New Year. We made our own versions of artefacts, writing instructions for these.

In PE, we learnt all about dragon dancing and practised learning to do one, then we made up our own when we were playing, being accompanied by children who had made up Chinese New Year Bands. We finished off the celebration by looking at money and making lucky money envelopes and writing our own menus for a Chinese Banquet – this was delicious!

Our last text was ‘Biscuit Bear’ and we all enjoyed following instructions to make our own biscuits. We used our counting skills to work out how many we had and practised one more and one less with the amounts.

We celebrated Valentine’s with a coffee morning, chatting with parents about children’s next steps, whilst they did activities. Throughout the half term, we have had music sessions from ‘Musical Minis’ and children enjoyed a theatre visit from ‘The Snow Queen’. This was an exciting half term and we are looking forward to the next where we will be going down in the jungle!

Year 1 - Miss Willis and Miss Jones

All about Year 1 ...

What we have been learning ...Notices and letters ...Useful links ...

Our new topic will be 'Pirates' and we are sure the children will enjoy exploring the seven continents and surrounding oceans as pirates once did. In Geography, we will study each continent in greater depth and discuss climates, countries, animals, cultures and many more wonderful things that can be found within each continent.

 

In English, we will be writing about our pirate adventures that we go on this term through keeping a detailed diary. We will make our writing as detailed as possible by using adjectives and conjunctions to extend our sentences
