Reception - Always Remember

Home » News » Reception - Always Remember

What a week! World Nursery Rhyme Week, Julia Donaldson and Remembrance Day have given us lots to think about this week.

Each day we have learnt a new Nursery Rhyme. What is your favourite? According to the World Nursery Rhyme website the favourite nursery rhyme for 2016 was "Twinkle Twinkle". First published in 1806. 2nd place: Incy Wincy Spider. 3rd place: Miss Polly Had a Dolly 4th place: Humpty Dumpty. 5th place: Hey Diddle Diddle. Each time we shared a nursery rhyme we played a sound on an instrument to celebrate. We created a Nursery Rhyme area and videoed each other sharing rhymes. Our confidence and independence is growing and growing.

One of Julia Donaldson's most recent stories has enabled us to develop a focus on Numbers and Patterns this week. Spinderella is a great read all about a Spider who wants to get better at numbers. Counting and football are her favourite thing to do, so we took her lead and created lots of opportunities to count and create football games in the garden. Being in spider football teams allowed us to count the total number and we have enjoyed creating patterns with shapes and objects.

In PE Julia Donaldson's ideas have helped us to develop our creative movements. We experimented with ways to create shapes to replicate characters from Room on the Broom. We have all been very impressed at the range of movements created, and the way we are developing our movements to move at different speeds.

Today we have made lots of connections with Remembrance Day. We firstly talked about joining together with the whole school to think about the brave men and women who helped to keep us safe. We took part in Miss Penance's worship and the two minute silence with the whole school. We created poppies to dress the cross in the hall, painted 3D poppies and thought carefully about why we wear a poppy after watching the moving Ceebies story. http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/watch/poppies I am looking forward to displaying all your hard work.

Have a wonderful weekend,

Mrs Pointon.
