Every day in Reception is different!  We follow the Early Years Curriculum when we plan our topics and activities, but most of our learning happens through play and exploration.  The Reception children learn how to be a good friend and the importance of following rules to keep them safe and happy.  "British Values" are reinforced through our exciting, enriched curriculum.

  
Autumn Term 2017


Our topic this term is
"Let's Celebrate" 



We will be thinking about;
- birthdays and parties
- British values week - The Queen's rules
- Ilkeston fair
- Autumn, harvest and the Little Red Hen
- Bonfire night
- Winter and Christmas

--------------------------------------
This week in Reception, we've been thinking about the Queen and the rules she likes us to follow so that we're all safe and happy.  We agreed that Mrs Smith is like the Queen because she tells us rules for keeping safe too! 
We've also;
- listened to two stories about the Queen
(The Birthday Crown and The Queen is coming to tea),
- made hand print portraits of the Queen,
- made jam tarts,
- designed a china tea cup for the Queen
and finally...
- had afternoon tea where we ate our jam tarts and had a nice cup of tea - yummy!

We have been really excited in Reception because Ilkeston Fair has started! After talking about different fairground rides, we made big wheels using split pins, carousel horses and helter skelters.  We had an assembly about keeping safe at the fair too.  



We had our own Reception Fair on Tuesday.  We used real coins to pay for a go on Hook-a-Duck
 and Knock Down the Teddy.  We bought a doughnut too. They were delicious!

------------------------------------


We have done lots of activities about texture this week.  We explored the objects in our Treasure Basket and described how they felt. 
 
On Wednesday, we had a visit from Animaltastic!  We stroked or held a snake, a lizard, a rabbit and a giant snail.  We couldn't touch the hedgehog because he was too prickly!

Meet "Bubbles" the hedgehog!

We have had such a fun week learning about Autumn!
Our
“Autumn Celebration Day” allowed the Nursery and Reception children to play alongside each other whilst becoming involved in a variety of Autumn themed activities.

Please see pictures below!
----------------------------------------------------------------
We have been thinking about Bonfire night in Reception.  We created our own firework dance on the playground, as well as chalking lots of different firework pictures.  We used instruments to make firework sounds and talked about our own Bonfire night experiences.  We watched "Fireman Sam's Safety Tips" to make sure we all understood the rules for keeping safe around fireworks, bonfires and sparklers.

Christmas Workshop

We have been very busy this morning at our Christmas workshop.  We had lots of help from our mums, dads, grandparents and friends.  We made lots of fantastic Christmas and Winter pictures including winter mittens, snowflakes, Santa and a Christmas tree.




______________________________
Spring 1 2018

Our topic this half term is 
"Once Upon a Time"

During this half term we will be doing lots of activities about different types of books and their special features.  We will explore a number of traditional stories through role play, writing, maths and creative activities.
                  
                  
-----------------------------------------
This week we have explored the story of "Goldilocks and the 3 Bears." We have sorted objects by size, sequenced pictures from the story, written labels and captions about the 3 bears' house and helped Mrs Bailey and Mrs Barlow to make porridge. The porridge was "just right." Yum!   

See our Gallery below for more photographs...

During the last 2 weeks, we have been doing lots of activities about the Gingerbread Man.  We practised re-telling the story using actions instead of pictures and we all made our own Gingerbread Man to take home - delicious!  We designed some new outfits for the character and gave him some really funky hair styles!  

 
  
-------------------------------------------
On Tuesday 6th February it was 
"Safer Internet Day."


We listened to a story called "The Adventures of Smartie the Penguin."  We helped Smartie to make the right decisions when different things kept appearing on his new tablet.  We talked about people being unkind on the internet and how important it is to tell someone if something unusual appears on the screen.
