Reception - China
Welcome to China class. We are in Reception and our teacher is Mrs Barber. Mrs Fletcher,Mrs Waupotitsch and Mrs Riccobena are our Teaching Assistants. We enjoy learning through play and using our outdoor classroom.
We've been celebrating World Book Day!
This week we have been joining in with our first lessons on 'My Feelings' from our new RSE resource. Before the lessons we worked hard together as a class to come up with our 'Working Agreements' which include keeping the conversation in the room and not using other children's names.
We've started some learning around relationships, which builds on everything we've learned about feelings this year. Today we looked at some different faces and gave each feeling a name - e.g. 'excited' 'pleased' 'upset' 'worried', etc. We sorted them into two groups - comfortable and uncomfortable - the children use these words in our PATHS lessons already. Using 'comfortable' and 'uncomfortable' help children learn that all feelings are ok.
This week we have been developing our spatial awareness. We have designed and drawn mazes and made them with large objects and Duplo. We have also made obstacle courses for walking or using wheeled toys on. We have practised using words such as balance, jump, walk, climb, step. We have thought about positional words such as under, over, through, up, around and down. The children have practised challenging themselves to make things harder and shown great teamwork and problem-solving skills.
