Our Art border for this page was inspired by our self portraits.
Reception have started back with lots of energy – half term was a well-deserved rest! We have been reminding ourselves about our classroom rules because it is easy to forget them after a week away. I have been impressed with how many children have responded well to this.
My socks were totally knocked off by the amazing writing that the children have all done about their half term. They have been using their phonics knowledge and their recall of the words on the high frequency key rings to help them with this. Some even remembered capital letters, fingers spaces and full stops! Fantastic work.
Excitingly, we have been teaching Oak class how to use hammers and nails responsibly so that we can use these skills to make a sparkly magical tree stump for telling stories on outside. I hope that this will lead on to more word-working skills in the future.
It was great fun seeing so many children at the Spooky disco on Thursday night too – Reception have some great moves!
