This week in Reception we have been drawing and talking about our families. Here the children drew pictures of mums, dads and any siblings they may have
In maths we have started counting objects, we have been counting from 1-10. Lots of the children enjoyed working with the compare bears and multi cubes.
The children have been outside on the bikes and using the construction area well. We have been building our own towers. The children have used a variety of materials to create their own towers. Counting the bricks 🧱.
Have a look at our pictures below - lots of smiley faces - Da Iawn Reception. 😃
First week in Reception done!
A very big 'well done' to all our new Reception superstars! You have come into school with big smiles on your faces all week. We have loved getting to know you and can't wait to carry on next week!
Handy hints and tips....
It's quite normal for your little ones to have a wobble at the door to class in the morning
or an energy dip in the day and feel a little bit wibbly. You wonderful mums have some fantastic ideas to give a bit of comfort and we thought we'd share them.
-Spray a bit of your perfume or aftershave on their jumper so they can have a sniff and feel comforted.
- Draw a heart on their hand or on a piece of paper for them to look at.
- Cover a hair bobble or friendship bracelet with kisses for them to wear.
- Tell them that they carry you in their hearts and you're always there, or to pull on the invisible string that joins you.
The coughs and colds have started already!
Can you help us by teaching your child to blow and wipe their noses properly, throw tissue in the bin, then wash hands?
It's obviously more important than ever that we all practise good hygiene.
We find it useful to say 'pinch the tissue under your nose' -it helps to stop the smearing....you get the picture!
Show them how to 'catch' sneezes and coughs in the crook of their elbow.
Put tissues in their pockets.
We're thinking of making junk modelling spiders next week to go with us sequencing the rhyme Incy Wincy Spider.
Do you have kitchen roll tubes for us to use please? We will have to put them aside for 72 hours so earlier in the week would be great!
If you go out this weekend we'd love acorns, conkers and small twigs for our Mud Kitchen.
Have a lovely weekend, get lots of sleep and see you on Monday!
