Little Red Hen
This term we have been having so much fun learning about the little Red Hen. We are able to retell the story and read our own story map. Some children have been successfully creating their own story maps. Some children are now beginning to write sentences about the characters and share their own opinions about how the characters felt and how they behaved.
Our Dinosaur days have created a huge sense au wonder and the children have loved finding out more about dinosaurs. The children were initially introduced to the topic when the classroom had been rearranged and they found small dinosaurs and egg. The following week the children found an enormous bone and three large eggs. The children excited watch the egg and explored the bone and shared their ideas and opinions. The children learnt about different types of dinosaurs and what they ate.
We were lucky to have the opportunity to have the bike ability team into our reception. The children had great fun using the bikes and playing games whilst riding in the hall.
PE and Gymnastics
This term we have been doing extra physical education sessions. James has been in this term exploring the apparatus with the children and the children have been developing their core strength and managing risks. We have also had a team from Park Community School who have been teaching gymnastics to our children every Monday. It has enabled the children the opportunity to move using different body parts and also to develop their landing abilities when jumping from heights.
