Look what we have been doing in Reception!

We have had a very busy few weeks settling into our new classroom. We have been talking about starting school and thinking about how to behave in the classroom and getting used to our school rules and routines. We went on a walk round the school to explore our new environment and surroundings. We have been in to join collective worship where we sat beautifully and showed really good listening skills for our whole school worship.

We have been very excited to take part in our Welly Boot sessions and had to put on special waterproof clothes and our wellies. We had great fun exploring the welly boot area and we even played a game of hide and seek!

On Friday it is time for PE. We have to put our PE kit on and then we go into the hall. We have played games and used some of the different equipment.

As part of our RE topic we have been thinking about ‘Being Special’. We have read different stories and reflected on what makes each of us unique! We have been painting our self portraits by looking closely at our features in a mirror. We also talked about what similarities and differences we have to each other in the class.

Our classroom has many areas to explore and some of us have been busy in the construction area building models while others like to spend time making things in the creative area. We have a role play area in our classroom and some of us like to pretend we are having a picnic or creating a tea shop. We have also been busy exploring the different colours we can make when we mix the paints!
