    Arts Week


    This week is Arts week and we have been looking at the artworks by Damien Hirst currently on display at Houghton Hall. We also read 'The Dot' by Peter Reynolds which is all about being confident and proud of your own artworks.The children thought of lots of different ways of creating dots. Here are two of their ideas:
    They have learned how to roll, join and cut clay. Then they they used circular templates, pegs and beads to shape, stamp and pierce the clay. they also joined citcular spots on top.
    They also used weaving skills to weave a large circular dots.

    Creative Writing

    We use as many opportunities as we can to write all the time in reception. In the classroom we’ve been doing guided writing. The children work together and use sounds as much as they can to write words. If they’re not sure, they have been using the letter mats to find out how to write the sounds they need. This piece was a postcard they wrote after half term to say what they have been doing in the holidays.

    Outside writing examples include writing lists of whose turn it is to act stories out on the stage, but they often write mud kitchen menus, signs and other labels too.

    Our creative writing is ‘Helicopter stories’ which gives the children the chance to be an author to their own stories. They tell their story to an adult, who scribes it exactly, then we act out together in a group. Here are some children in our role play area illustrating the stories they have just told, then acting them out for the class. We include objects like gates, houses and so on when retelling and ask questions such as ‘How would the gate move open? How does the dog walk?’ The children have loved telling their stories as well as acting them and are beginning to use story language too. Some children even go home and tell their own stories too!

    New Term

    Well, we have all been back at school for quite a few weeks now. All the children are settling in very nicely and we are learning lots of new things every day. So far we have introduced letters S, A, T, P and I and numbers 1-9. We have been out in our mud kitchen and lovely ourdoor area. We have even ventured in to assembly. What a fantastic start!



    We are having fun in our outdoor area


    We went for a listening walk to hear the different sounds in our environment. What do you think we heard in these places?
