Reception weekly news
Welcome back to a new term Reception.
We have made a great start to our learning this week by finding out what we already know about woodland and forest life and what we would like to find out. To inspire our writing we read the story of 'Stick man' by Julia Donaldson and created some fold up storybooks where we wrote the title and added new illustrations and then wrote some independent sentences. They look great on our writing wall, we are becoming authors reception!
In number work we have started to look at measurement and non standard measures. Using unifix cubes we measured different objects around our classroom and worked out which were the tallest or smallest objects.
We have made great progress in PE since September, when we first went into the big space in the hall. We are more confident at moving around the space in a range of different ways and this week we talked about the challenge of hitting a target with a ball, each having a go at throwing a ball underarm through a hoop.
In music we continued to tell stories through song using our faces to show feelings and describe whats happening. we sang with a sad face, tired face and a cross face but cheered ourselves up singing some rock n roll.
As winter is approaching we made some bird feeders to hang in the trees in the garden from pine cones, peanut butter and bird seeds in nature club. It has been great to watch the birds come into the garden to feed on them, we obviously made them yummy enough!
To mark remembrance and the end of the first world war, a 100 years ago, we listened to the Remembrance Day Child song and discussed why we wear poppies today. In the hall are listed the 20 men who attended Wybunbury Delves School and died during the war so we created a piece of art to commemorate and honour their sacrifice. Thank you for all contributions from home this week about family members who fought in the war, we have shared these throughout this week and added them to our Remembrance wall with our promise "We will remember you."
Friday was a busy day as our first group attended a fantastic forest school session with Mr and Mrs Tibbets. Using 'Stick man' to inspire the activities, we set out the boundary to work within and then observed the stick rules as we made stick men which were then used to retell the story. We then created dream catchers from leaves to hang from the branches in the classroom, they look so gorgeous.
Back in class, our other group was joined by a member of our village community. She came in to share the fascinating story of her Great Granddad who was a member of our school and who fought and survived both World Wars. We loved hearing about his adventures and found the photos very interesting. We would all like to say a very big thank you for joining us and helping us remember.
During worship we had a special visitor, Russell Elision-Jones from Wybunbury's World War 1 Group. He told us about the end of the war and shared some of the interesting details about how Wybunbury marked the end of the war (once the news of peace had finally reached our little village).
Have a lovely weekend
