The children have had their first full week in Reception this week. They have been very busy making new friends, exploring the environment and learning the rules and expectations.
Our topic for this half term is 'All About Me'. We have really enjoyed getting to know each other, and finding out everyone's interests. We have begun to talk about ourselves, and to paint our own portraits this week. We studied our reflections, and thought carefully about the colours we needed for our various features.
As this past week was Roald Dahl Week, we read the story 'The Enormous Crocodile'. We made our own crocodiles, and also built a trap for the crocodile outside. The children were also asked to bring in their favourite books as part of Roald Dahl Week. We have begun to read these stories in class, and the children are excited to share their books with the class. If your child has not yet brought in their favourite book, they can do so next week.
