Our first weeks……

Hello and welcome to Reception! We have been very busy over the last few weeks, settling into our new classroom, and enjoying lots of different activities. We thought you might like to see a few of the things that we have been doing…….

We enjoy being creative. We have used beans, chalk, pencil, pens and paint to mark-make and create beautiful pictures.We have also drawn, painted and collaged some fantastic art work for our corridor display – have you seen our amazing hedgehog collage and paintings yet?

We enjoy imaginative play. We like to dress-up, to act out real life activities in our role play areas, to build places and buildings, and to sing and make music!

We absolutely adore playing outside – we balance, throw and catch, role play picnics and shops, ride our bikes, play on stilts…… the list is endless.

We have also spent time creating self-portraits to put on the wall – we looked very carefully at our faces and features first, and then tried to make our paintings look exactly the same.

We are really enjoying our time in Reception, and are looking forward to showing you more of what we have been doing very soon!!!
