Every day in Reception is different!  We follow the Early Years Curriculum when we plan our topics and activities, but most of our learning happens through play and exploration.  The Reception children learn how to be a good friend and the importance of following rules to keep them safe and happy.  "British Values" are reinforced through our exciting, enriched curriculum.

Bonfire Night and Autumn

We have had such a fun week thinking about Autumn and Bonfire Night!
Our “Autumn Celebration Day” gave the Nursery and Reception children the chance to play alongside each other whilst becoming involved in a variety of Autumn themed activities. We had great fun playing in the leaves!
 

 

We have also done lots of activities about Bonfire Night throughout the week.  We created our own firework dance on the playground, as well as chalking lots of different firework pictures.  We watched "Fireman Sam's Safety Tips" to make sure we all understood the rules for keeping safe around fireworks, bonfires and sparklers and we talked about our own Bonfire Night experiences.

 

Ilkeston Fair!

This week the children have enjoyed activities around the Fair. In Maths each child was given an amount of Pennies to spend at Larklands Fair. They were able to spend their money for a go on ; Hook a Duck, Tin Can Alley, a ride on the Bikes and finally a Doughnut!

 

          

National Poetry Day - 4.10.18

It was "National Poetry Day" on Thursday 4th October.  In Reception, we listened to a poem called "Autumn Winds" and we made up actions to go with the words.  We talked about some of the changes that happen in Autumn and we made a yummy shortbread biscuit in the shape of an Autumn leaf. 

Animaltastic - 9.10.18

After listening to the story of "When Willy Went to the Wedding," we talked about all the different pets he took to the church and how their different coats might feel.

On Tuesday 9th October, Animaltastic came to visit us and we got the chance to touch or hold some real animals. We described how they felt using words such as soft, spiky, hard and bumpy.  EVERYONE joined in and remembered to be really quiet and gentle so that the animals didn't get frightened.
