We were blown away by the children’s fantastic superhero costumes on Tuesday! It was such a brilliant start to our ‘Reception to the Rescue’ topic. They really enjoyed engaging in sport challenges on the playground and field. We had children hurdling, throwing javelins, bouncing on the trampolines, weaving in and out of the cones with a hockey and ball and shooting baskets with a basket ball!
Literacy- Miss Wildboar (our University student training to be a teacher) has been really impressed with the children’s writing this week. They have been writing about themselves as superheroes including their super powers and superhero name.
Maths- I have been wowed by the children’s symmetrical capes they have been designing with Mrs Barnett. The children used a mirror to check that their pattern was symmetrical.
Phonics- This week the children have been learning the graphemes au (August, haunted), a_e (cake, bale), e_e (athlete, compete), i_e (kite, bite).
PE- Working in groups of 5, the children practised throwing different sized balls to each other. They used foam balls, plastic small balls, basketballs and squashy balls. We practised keeping our arms in front of us and keeping our eyes on the ball.
IT and Computing- The children enjoyed using the BeeBots to program the superheroes to different ‘disasters’ such as a broken bridge and a house on fire. They had to choose the most appropriate superhero for the mission and then direct the BeeBot to the correct location. We practised using the language left, right, forwards and backwards.
Remember it is the Tardebigge Trek on Monday 14th May so please send your child into school in their Forest School clothes on Monday and Tuesday. It is also a non-uniform day on Friday 18th May to celebrate the Royal wedding so please send your child dressed in blue, white or red clothes.
Have a super weekend!
