We have had a very exciting start to our last week of half term! We kicked off Careers week with three visitors to our class. The children have learned about what it would be like to be a doctor, a vicar and a vet. They got to handle some of the equipment that they would need to do those jobs and even had the chance to practise being a vet by looking after Dougal the dog! The children listened beautifully to all of our visitors and asked lots of interesting questions.

Here are some of the things that they got up to…

Where do I live?

The children have enjoyed discussing our local area and learning about different homes and houses we all live in. This afternoon they were enthusiastic about their junk modelling and construction of the different buildings in our vicinity.

 All About Me

The children have settled in to school life very well. They have started to learn new sounds, explore shapes and have been drawing pictures of themselves. This week the children are thinking about the question ‘What do I look like?’ They have labelled pictures of themselves and have been listening carefully to sounds that they can hear in the words. We have also had great fun exploring movement in PE.

All the children have had an exciting first week in Reception! The children have enjoyed exploring the different areas of the classroom and have been busy making new friends. We are looking forward to the adventures that we will have together during the year. Here are a few photographs to show what they have been doing so far…
