Feelings Web

June 30th, 2013 by

Reception made their very own web this week. We took the time the talk about our likes and dislikes including things we do at home, foods, TV programmes etc. We also spoke about things we are good at and things we could improve on. As we were doing this we were making a web at the same time… Doesn’t it look fab!!!??!!?

My Money Week

June 9th, 2013 by

Reception and the rest of Leamore took part in ‘My Money Week’. Reception class had to decide what they wanted to sell and for how much. Once we decided we then had to think of a name, slogan and design for our product. We sold pots of chopped up fruit (freshly prepared by the children) and sold them as ‘cute fruit’. Every child got involved, whether it was decorating a pieces of fruit for our stall, being a sales assistant, chopping the fruit or promoting it in a school assembly. It was a true success.

Conversation Station

May 7th, 2013 by

We have been trying to improve our speaking and listening skills in Reception and trying really hard to develop our communication and language skills too.
Mr Hickman made this “conversation station” to help us do this. Two children are allowed to go in and chat chat chat…

We must remember to take if in turns though.

The children were really well behaved. They interacted with age appropriate software, used hardware to complete simple computer programmes and took it in turns to hold the Wii remote.

WANTED!!!

March 6th, 2013 by

Some jungle animals got into Reception’s classroom and messed everything up. The children in Reception had to write a letter using sentences to the police and the rest of the school explaining what had happened and to keep an eye out for some jungle animals roaming the school.
We also made wanted posters and stuck them around the school. The children gave meaning to the marks they made as they drew, wrote and painted pictures of the animals.

Reception enjoyed their maths, with a Chinese twist, lesson today. The children were learning all about ‘longest‘ and ‘shortest‘ and Mr Hickman and his snake helper kept the children in suspense, as they revealed pairs of objects from the mystery box. The children were invited to decide which of the items was the ‘longest‘ and which was the ‘shortest‘.

Here’s how the children sorted the objects:
