Reception children have continued to 'wow' us with growing resilience and independence when learning. Our topic this half term has been 'Superheroes' and the children have certainly proved they are 'real life' superheroes in many ways! Of course, we learnt about the amazing, cool superheroes in films and comics, but we also learnt about what it takes for us to be respectful superheroes. The children suggested you are a respectful superhero by saying 'please' and 'thank you'. We have been learning all about the number bonds to 10 and will keep practising next half term. The children have investigated the number bonds in lots of different ways; Numberblocks have helped us along the way, too! Have a look at our Spring 2 highlights to see all of the wonderful learning opportunities that the children have loved this half term.
We have had another action packed half term in Reception full of fantastic learning. Our topic has been 'Just the Job'. We have been learning all about people who help us. The children have loved being police detectives in our police station role-play area and we were lucky enough to have a real life fire fighter who came to visit and teach us all about her job. One child said, 'I love the firefighter's helmet.' The children continue to amaze us with their intricate models and imaginative play. They have been making lots of hotels and imaginative worlds, which has sparked interesting conversations and even involved some maths learning!
We have had a busy Autumn term in Reception! The children settled so well and are forming some lovely friendships. They are confident to try new things in the classroom and in the quadrangle. They have particularly enjoyed our autumn work: going on an autumn walk, making clay hedgehogs and using their autumn finds to make their own leaf people. They even used an app called Chatterpix to make their leaf-man come to life!
We have had some exciting visitors this half term. We built a rocket ship and went to the moon in an imagination workshop with Tots pretend, a lady from Leeds Road safety team taught us how to stay safe for road safety week, but our most exciting visitors were five little ducklings who spent the day with us!
