Reception Visitor

This week in Reception we have been very lucky to have a classroom visit to support our book theme called ‘White Rabbit’s Colour Book’ by Alan Baker.

We have been recognising colours and sorting different objects by their colour. The children have enjoyed sharing their success with Bonnie the Bunny and showing her all their work! We have also been mixing paints to create new colours. We have also enjoyed petting Bonnie and taking care of her this week.

Here she is enjoying the book herself. I wonder if any of the children can tell their grown up what happens in this story?

 

YFD Fun Day

Bubble Day

Please see below the photographs of the children completing some of the challenges similar to what they have all seen on our Battle of the Bubbles series. It was a scorcher but we had lots of fun!

The challenges included:
Stanley’s Mini Tea Party – we had to balance our ‘teabag beanbag’ on our heads to complete the adventure playground.
Teabag challenge – throw the ‘beanbag teabags’ into the oversized cups to score points.
Scavenger hunt – find items Stanley had lost to give back to Stanley. The cards either had challenges on or were a letter to spell a word for us to work out.
Thank you so much to our hosts for sorting the series and the challenges. We have all loved watching and playing along and look forward to hearing the winner later this week.

Magical Monday – Minibeast Crafts

This week for our Magical Monday we designed and created a minibeast craft of our choice. First the children chose a minibeast and drew their design, thinking about the different materials and resources they could use. Next they use the available materials and resources to create their minibeast. Take a look at the amazing creations below:

Magical Monday – Spider Puppets

For this week’s Magical Monday we made spider puppets!

Great British Spring Clean
