Story Fun In Reception

The Reception children this week have been focusing on story narratives. The children have been encouraged to create their own stories using their imaginations with the help of stimulative provisions in class. They made a story road map, tried story scribing, acted on the amphitheatre, read in the dark tent, made magic wands and painted story stones. It has been a fun week. Like this:Like Loading...

There are always two different choices (one meat, one vegetarian), as well as salad or vegetables, and we have a four week menu which means every day in the month it’s a different type...


Wall Climbing

One of the fun activities Reception enjoys at school is wall climbing. Without their knowledge, the children develop muscle strength, hand and eye coordination, confidence, self-esteem, and spatial awareness through wall climbing. There is always that huge sense of accomplishment and pride whenever the children reach their set goals. We have noticed a huge improvement in children’s determination, resilience and the ability to climb. Have a glimpse of their portrayed skills. Like this:Like
