This group of children enjoyed being an explorasuarus by exploring the small worked farm. The children enjoyed talking about the different animals there and as a group we talked about the different noises the animals make.
As part of World Nursery Rhyme Week the children in Reception will be learning a nursery rhyme each day and taking part in activities linking to that rhyme. This helps develop the children’s communication and language, literacy skills, maths and helps them to develop socially and emotionally.
The rhyme we focused on today was Bobby Shafto. The children enjoyed learning the song and coming up with actions to help us remember it .
The children then made telescopes to help them look out onto the sea and some children used boxes to make a boat!
Today the children noticed that there was something different about the sky. Whilst we were outside the sun turned a very bright orange/red colour and the clouds were very dark. The children discussed what could have happened and why is was like that.
Some of the children decided that it was on fire and it was burning the sky! We then talked about the dangers of the sun and was to stay safe from it even in the colder months.
Reception brought in their teddy bears and had a picnic, but they had to be careful that Goldilocks wasn’t around to eat any of it up! The children then went on a hunt for Goldilocks with their teddies around school. Finally they could hear snoring coming from the shed so we think Goldilocks may have fallen asleep in there!
Thank you to our parents and carers that came to our stay and play today. We hope that you enjoyed reading with the children and that you are now more aware of how the children in EYFS learn reading and writing.
