Reception

The children have enjoyed our Post Office and Sorting Office role-play areas, writing letters and delivering parcels all week as part of The Jolly Christmas Postman. The children have been increasingly engaged in writing and are beginning to form recognisable letters and write tricky words. Our gingerbread play dough was successful… keep your eyes open for next weeks photos…

Reception Phonics Workshop presentation from 6th November ’18:

Reception Phonics Workshop 6th November ’18

The children have loved learning the story of The Naughty Bus. He visited our classroom and made a mess! Leaving beans EVERYWHERE!!!! The children then wrote some lovely signs to stop Naughty Bus from doing it again. As part of Diwali the children decorated their own rangoli patterns and learnt about the story of Rama and Sita. As part of Remembrance Day the children decorated biscuits and did some lovely collages of Poppies.

For the past two weeks, we have been learning all about Stick Man. We had a whole week of activities planned about Stick Man, then disaster struck… we lost him! We made lost posters and maps to try and find him. Unfortunately, this did not work so we had to call an emergency Reception meeting. We split into groups and searched the whole school! We used our observation and detective skills and found lots of photographs showing where Stick Man had been, but still no Stick Man. We had almost given up hope when in walked Mr McLeod and he had found Stick Man on his travels and had put him in his pocket. We were so grateful to Mr McLeod that we all wrote him thank you letters.

In maths, we have been learning how to build a Numicon ladder and how to form our numbers correctly. We have also been using lots of natural resources including conkers and sticks for counting activities.

Reception had lunch at school this week, they were fantastic and enjoyed their delicious dinners. We are very excited for the children to be in full time next week. Winston has also gone home for the weekend with a child from each class.

Our Mud Kitchen Is Officially Open!

Reception have had a fantastic second week. The mud kitchen officially opened and the children have enjoyed making marvellous mud creations. The children also joined the rest of the school for playtime and thoroughly enjoyed playing with them.

 

An Exciting First Week

We have had a fantastic start to Pineham Barns! We have been very busy exploring our new classroom, outdoor provision, big playground and school! We have been having lots of fun in our handwriting and Phonics lessons. We have also been making new friends and exploring and learning together!
