Reception First Half Term 2017

We have had a very busy first half term in Reception! We have been learning all about ourselves in the ‘Magical Me’ topic.

It’s been great fun exploring our new classroom, the outdoor area and making lots of new friends. We loved meeting our Year 6 buddies and inviting them to play in our classroom. We have all settled into school life well!

Over the half term, we have been looking at ourselves, our family and home, our bodies and keeping healthy. We enjoyed exploring our 5 senses, especially the taste and smell tests! We really liked bringing in our favourite things inside our ‘Magical Me’ bags and enjoyed sharing with the children and talking about all the different items.

We made a ‘Who Am I?’ book which had lots of baby pictures of the children inside. The children loved exploring the book and trying to guess who the babies were!

We have also been learning lots of new letter sounds and counting numbers 1-10.
