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.
This week The LDC, Reception and Year 1 visited the Garage in Norwich to see 'My first panto - Rapunzel'
Last week we had a really busy week. We had our reading cafe and stay & play. We read 'The Book with No Pictures' and created Robot Monkeys / Monkeys / Robots. It was great fun!
This week we have been busy rehearsing for our Nursery and Reception play 'The Night Before Christmas.' The children were filmed for the DVD which is available
to order. Thanks to Steve Turner for the beautiful photos!
The weather recently has been horrible and there have been days when lots of children want to stay indoors. This week has been cold and dry and we have been making the most of our outdoor classroom. The children have developed their own balancing tracks - making it increasingly challenging with changes of height, slopes and large spaces between blocks. Their game has evolved into a Three Billy Goats Gruff scenario where the troll hides in the tunnel then they use their track to run away. We have also enjoyed the mud kitchen
We've been doing lots of autumn-inspired artwork, looking closely at the autumn squashes and drawing their shapes carefully, selecting the right colours. We also used clay to make some tiles - we practised rolling the clay and using leaves, conkers and cones we have collected to print into the clay. When they're dry we'll decorate them to hang up at home.
