Wow this week has been another busy week in Reception. We have been working really hard on developing our writing through the use of sensory fun using play dough in dough disco time and sand to practise our letter shapes and on top of all of that we have been writing our letter sounds.
Nursery and Reception
This week both Nursery and Reception had a brilliant day dressing up as Rock Stars to celebrate the launch of Rock Stars times tables and World Maths Day. Not only did they get to be a Rock Star for the day they got to take part in some fun maths activities.
We have been having a brilliant time learning all about the number one. We have made the number one with our bodies, found one object and drawn number ones on the floor with chalk. We have also been using one finger to finger paint hand prints.
We have very busy practising our writing and maths skills using lots of different ways. Did you know that climbing is a skill we need for writing as is painting, using those up and down movements. Sorting, linking, threading and pushing cars also helps us to write because it helps us with our fine motor and pincer skills which we need to hold a pencil. So even when we are doing maths we are learning to write.
Reception took part in a sponsored walk to Walsall Arboretum. The children walked all the way to the Arboretum and did laps around the pathway to earn their mile stickers. Once the walking was done they even had time to have lunch and fun on the park.
Early Years fun!
