Learning in Reception (December 2020)

(November 2020)

The children in Reception have been learning various skills this term.  This includes threading pasta onto string to develop fine motor skills and making toast to encourage independence, learn about staying safe and again, develop fine motor skills by spreading and cutting.  They have also enjoyed learning for a purpose and have been have been using lar​ge cardboard boxes to make their own role play - deconstructed role play. Children have made cars, houses, castles, pirate ships and much more!


Remembrance Day- Poppies:

The children in Early Years have been learning through role play and writing for a purpose.  The children have been busy washing up to get their home corner ready for visitors!  This promoted lots of talk of their own experiences of washing at home, developing their vocabulary and also supporting hand eye coordination and arm strength.  The children have also organised resources and planned their own pirate ship.  They had to exchange ideas and create their own stories.  The children have also built a bug house using great team work and written shopping lists!
