Take a look at some of the work that we have been doing...
We have been learning about our 5 senses. We have had fun taking part in 'feely bag' activities to use our sense of touch to guess 'beth sy yn yr bag?'. We played 'Eye Spy' using our sense of sight. We really enjoyed using our sense of taste to discover what flavour crisps we liked the best. We made a chart to help us work out which was the least and most popular flavour. We had to guess the correct animal sounds using our sense of hearing and finally we took part in a 'Smelly Cup' challenge where we had to guess the correct smell.
Here we are matching each sense to the correct body parts...
We enjoy our Story Sessions in Reception. Here we are learning about the features of books. We look forward to Janet Chaplin coming into visit us again next week. She will be reading 'The Gingerbread Man'.
Learning how to play interactive games. We love 'Hairy Letters' and 'Monkey Maths'...
We have also been developing our mouse control by learning how to 'drag and drop' objects on screen...
We have been working hard to form our numbers!

We voted for our favourite mode of transport by standing in different areas in the classroom. Our teachers showed us how to create a tally chart!
We sing our 'Growth Mindset' song every morning to remind ourselves that we can improve all that we do if we just try!
Nothing is impossible! Miss Guy and Miss Solomon remind us that 'Practise make perfect!'
