Learning in our outdoor area
From peddle rolling to firefighters, water painting to potion making, we have truly engaged in all areas of our wonderful outdoor learning environment.
Indian cuisine restaurant
The children engage in the role-paly of a restaurant experience. They all had different roles; customer, waitress and chef. Some delicious food was being served.
Places of worship
The children have been building places of worship in the block area. Here is a church that somebody has built.
We have been learning all about the Diwali festival.
Here are some diva lamps that we have made using play-doh and other media and materials.
We have been exploring how to use the bee-bots.
Even though halloween was a little different this year, we still enjoyed making pumpkins with play-doh and scary masks in our creative area.
We had a wonderful last day of our first half term in reception.
We dressed up, had Halloween P.E., did Halloween activities and had Halloween treats.
Enjoy your well earned half term holiday everybody!
See you soon!
Happy Birthday Westie!
We had a fantastic day celebrating Westie's birthday. We had a party, played party games, did some party dancing and of course no party would be complete without party food and a birthday cake!
Westie even sent us a special thank you message!
We are now reading the story 'Kipper's Birthday.'
The children recently found out that it is Westie's birthday soon too!
They are very excited about this and have been busy writing birthday cards and party invitations. They have also been making party hats, play-doh birthday cakes, mud birthday cakes, all ready for Westie's birthday!
The children have been making repeating patterns and exploring shapes by making arrangements and pictures with them.
Some children made necklaces designed as a repeating pattern and some children decided to use natural objects that they found in the outdoor area.
There were some fantastic pictures with shapes. I love the one a child made of their dad! The children loved arranged the large shapes in the outdoor area. We have disco floors, to rockets and even a farm!
We started our school year with the story 'Owl Babies'
The children loved the story and would often retell it to their friends. They made owl collages using natural natural materials and other creative resources. Some children drew pictures of some of the characters and wrote their name!
Well done children!
