Reception

Reception Term 1 - 2020 (8 images)

We have had a fantastic start to term 1 in Reception. The children have enjoyed exploring resources both inside and outside. We have been learning about what makes us special and the children enjoyed sharing their memory boxes and talking about some of their favourite things. The children are becoming super independent as they choose their own resources and explore the environment. We have listened to many traditional stories such as ‘The Little Red Hen’ and the ‘Enormous Turnip’. The characters in these stories help teach us about the importance of resilience and never giving up when things seem difficult! In Maths we have been exploring numbers 1-5 through Number block characters and reinforcing our learning, with hands on resources, to help our understanding. In phonics, we have played lots of listening games which will help us when we begin to learn to read and write.

New Reception classes (4 images)

Over the summer holidays whole new indoor and outdoor areas were developed for our two Reception classes. The classrooms are beautifully light with plenty of floor to ceiling windows and large doors opening onto the wonderful outdoor learning area. The children are really benefitting from these new spaces and the impact on their motivation to learn is noticeable.

Happy Pancake Day from YRA! (10 images)

We started today by sharing stories and videos about Pancake Day and discussed why we celebrate “Pancake Day”. Reception then had lots of fun following instructions to make our pancake mixture. We took it in turns to weigh and measure the ingredients before whisking it together. Once our mixture was ready, we watched a “Cooking Show” where Miss Amos cooked our mixture on the hot plate. We watched our yummy pancakes cooking before choosing our toppings. We loved eating our pancakes at snack time.
