Reception News

Find out what we have been learning about this week in Reception 

Week beginning 20th February

The children have had such a fun week back after half-term! Our new topic is ‘superheroes’ and we have really enjoyed designing our own superhero; we then added labels to describe them. Sunset pictures were also created this week; the children used black paper to create a silhouette and stuck on their own superhero! We have also learnt about properties of materials: wood, plastic, metal and fabric. The children thought about which material, based on the properties that it has, would be best for a cape in preparation for making them next week… watch this space!

This week, we read the story of 'Chicken Clicking' as part of our e-safety learning. This story is about a chick who goes online, begins to buy things and then wants to make friends online too... It's a great story for showing children how to stay safe online.
