This is what some of the children said they liked about Reception.
Alisha said “My teachers help me read.”
Aaminah said “I can write and play with my friends.”
Mikaeel said “I learn phonics and play with my friends.”
Ibrahim said “I like going outside to learn.”
Humarya said “I like playing with my friends and pretending I'm the teacher. Teaching my friends sounds."
In Reception the children have a safe learning environment where they are encouraged to take risks, challenges and become independent learners through interactive play and focused activities. The staff in Reception are very passionate about what they do and want all children to thrive in their learning and to achieve the best that they can.
Staff in Reception:
Come and see how busy we have been.
In Reception the children learn through play. Here are a few examples of them doing this. They are learning to add, take away and write number sentences. The children are learning to name shapes, make patterns and order items by size. All activities are done in a fun and engaging way.
We have been learning to recognise our numbers and count.
We have been learning to order items by size,make patterns and much more.
Making bird feeders
Reception made bird feeders to help look after the birds when it gets cold.
The children have lots of opportunities to develop their literacy skills. In the morning, when the children first come in there is a morning read.The children have a 20 minutes phonics session everyday. During the day, children have the opportunity to write around the classroom. They can practise writing their name, write in the role play areas and outside. The children can also develop their reading skills in our reading castle and around the classroom. They also have a guided reading session once a week.
We have been practising how to write our names and simple words.
The children learnt about a range of different jobs. The children went on a local walk around the community,to look at all the different types of shops. We had a visit from a Paramedic who showed us all of his equipment. The children had the opportunity, to act out first hand experiences in the role play areas.
Our next topic was Transport. The children learnt about the different types of Transport.
The children carried out a road survey making a tally chart of the different types of vehicles they saw. The children had the opportunity to look inside and outside the teachers cars. They were shown the engine and recorded what they saw on a clip board.
