Today we learnt about Diwali and Bonfire night. Look at our beautiful fireworks paintings!
Yesterday, we had a visit from the road safety team. The children learnt about how to keep safe when crossing the road and while travelling in a car. They practised crossing the road, remembering to stop, look and listen!
Today we made pumpkin rice krispies. We followed the receipe and measured the ingredients carefully. We discussed the changes that occured to the ingredients when they were heated and mixed together.
This Monday we went into the ICT suite, we controlled and used the mouse to design a farm for the Little Red Hen. In PE we practised going under, over and through the apparatus, we also used our bodies to balance and jump off the equipment.
Today we made bread like the Little Red Hen. We felt the ingredients and talked about the texture. We measured and mixed the ingredients, discussed how the dough felt and how it would change because of the yeast and when it is baked in the oven.
We were very excited today...It is the first time we changed into our PE kits for our PE lesson in the hall!
This week the children have enjoyed painting or drawing their self portraits! They thought carefully about which colours and shapes they should be using and used mirrors to observe their facial features. We were very impressed the result.
Today we explored the ICT suite and used the computer software Espresso. We learnt how to control the mouse to find out information about Harvest and Autumn.
The Reception children have settled in really well to their new class. They have enjoyed making new friends, exploring their new classroom and learning how to use all of the equipment. We've started our daily phonics lessons and the children are enjoying reading and writing the new sounds they've been learning!
