A Very Busy First Half Term

It is hard to believe that we are coming to the end of our first half term in Reception. The children settled very quickly and, whilst learning the new routines, have also made a great start to phonics, maths and our topic ‘Are we There yet?’

One of the activities we enjoyed was going outside to look at the traffic that passes our school and record how many of each vehicle we saw.

We also made passports to take on a journey out of the classroom to the Lighthouse, and then recorded on a map how we got there and the places we passed.

We talked about the different ways we get to school, creating a pictogram. We could not believe how many children came in the car, so we are going to organise a ‘Walk to School Week,’ to help us be healthier and also look after the environment.
