It is commonly believed that the more Nursery Rhymes a child knows and is exposed to during their early years, the more confident speakers and readers they will become. The importance of reading and being a confident speaker is something we at Saint Anne’s celebrate and take pride in! To continue expanding our knowledge of new words we participated in World Nursery Rhyme week in which we dressed up as our favourite Nursery Rhyme characters, recited our rhymes, explored pattern in words and even created stories centred around Nursery Rhymes! We had so much fun even the organisation praised our efforts on twitter:
World Rhyme Week@worldrhymeweek: “Wow, some wonderful dressing up today from the children. Thank you so much for taking part this week- we hope you have enjoyed yourselves. Best wishes to you all and we hope you can join us again next year. Thank you
"Wonderful singing by these young rhymers #oldmcdonald #rhymeweek #worldnurseryrhymeweek"
Bonfire/Firework Safety Awareness
The Early Years enjoyed an afternoon of fun activities that helped to raise awareness of Fire Safety. We enjoyed watching video clips of Fireman Sam's safety tips on Bonfire Night and how to stay safe around fire and fireworks. We discussed this in depth and shared what safety tips we learned. Then, some of our peers who are 5 years old used sparklers to learn how to hold them safely- wow, what risk takers! We all enjoyed gathering around a bonfire and staying safe around an open flame plus making s'mores with marshmallows and biscuits. We also created our own firework pictures and edible sparklers! We were very lucky to have the help from our Yr5 buddies!
To end our learning of the story "Peace at Last" the Foundation Stage engaged in a pyjama morning. During this morning we discussed our own night time routines, how brushing our teeth helps us to stay healthy and clean, why sleep is important and what our favourite bed time stories are! What's your favourite bed time story? How do you prepare for bed time?
Reception enjoyed a visit from our Yr6 digital leaders as part of our coding week! The leaders showed us how to complete a simple programme using the iPads! In doing so we created some beautiful patterns that included spirals, butterflies and even fireworks! It is safe to say that our session was tech-tactic! We look forward to using the iPads during our time in Reception!
Physical Development and Well-Being
In Reception we believe a healthy body is just as important as a healthy mind! We aim to take extra special care of both! Please take a look at the activities we have been participating in!
