Our Learning in Reception

Bonkers about Bears!

We have been learning about bears in this term. We had a friendly bear visit us and he left footprints all around our classrooms and outside area. At first we were unsure what it might have been. Maybe it was a dinosaur? It was a mystery! 

 


Hugless Dougless wrote to us and we have been learning about him through his stories. It has been such fun! Now we are learning about bear facts and using non-fiction books to help us find out. 


Free choice painting activities. The children mixed their own paints and chose what their bears would look like. 


Ordering numbers using number cards.

Exploring letter shapes and mark making in foam.  We enjoy writing phonemes in glitter as well!

The children have enjoyed making ‘tea’ for the teddy bears. Our mud kitchen is very popular! 


Outside Learning

The children

Learning outside the classroom supports the development of healthy and active lifestyles by offering children opportunities for physical activity, freedom and movement, and promoting a sense of well-being. 


Outdoor play also supports children’s problem-solving skills and nurtures their creativity, as well as providing rich opportunities for their developing imagination, inventiveness and resourcefulness.
