WOW! What a great first week we have had in Reception.
Reception have been settling into school over the past week and have begun to familiarise themselves with the school routines. They have been introduced to their timetable and this week have begun lessons, including Phonics, Choir, Music, French and PE. The teachers in Reception have been amazed at how grown up and sensible all of the children have been. The children have had lots of fun meeting new friends, exploring their classroom and having lunch in the hall.
The boys have been introduced to our first story ‘The Gruffalo’ and we explored the characters in the story. They worked together in groups to decorate big versions of the gruffalo character. We also learnt our first sound ‘s’ in phonics and found out some words beginning with s. The Outdoor Area has been very popular with the boys. They have enjoyed using the wooden blocks to make a pirate ship whilst singing ‘We’re working together’, already demonstrating their great collaborative skills.
We had our first visit to Hinchley Wood on Wednesday. We learnt the rules of the bus before leaving and upon arriving we explored the woods. We opened a horse chestnut and found some pine cones.
What a busy week!
Miss O Gara, Miss Winter, Mrs Roberts and Mrs Campbell are all very proud of how well everyone has settled in and we look forward to another exciting week next week.
