Welcome to Pelaw 1 – Reception
So far in Reception the children have had an amazing time learning with their friends, both inside and outside. We go outside whatever the weather and have enjoyed playing in the sunshine, rain and the snow.
The children are making fantastic progress in both reading and writing, using the Read, Write Inc scheme. There are also many opportunities to count, measure and recognise numbers.
We value independent learning and so far the children’s interests have led us to organise a ‘Scarecrow’s Wedding’ for the whole school, create a pretend ‘bonfire’ outside to toast real marshmallows and we even went on an adventure to the ‘South Pole’ , at the bottom of the school field!
Here is what some of the children said about their learning so far this year:
“I like building, I make big garages and carparks for the cars.”
“We love baking cookies.”
“We learn letters and words at Phonics time, FRED the frog helps us sound out the words.”
“Painting is fun but you need an apron or you might get your school clothes messy!”
“We go to the computer room and can log-on to play on the games.”
“Water is really fun, you can pour it down the pipes and into the bucket outside.”
“We made the Chinese Dragon dance around the quad!”
