The children have had another amazing week in Reception and we are feeling really settled and happy with class routines. This week the children have been encouraged to further explore their surroundings and try out new activities. We have been talking about not giving up when things get a little bit difficult and seek out help from our friends in the classroom rather than asking an adult.
During class activities and Learning Journey time, the children have been feeling a lot more confident in finding tools, resources and materials for a particular project. They have become very independent in their learning and this is wonderful to see after only 2 weeks at school.
During Circle Time, we have been talking about how we share our toys with our friends and how to include everyone into our games.
In our Creative Area this week, the children painted their self-portraits. We spent some time looking in the mirror, discussing all the features on our face. The children have done a wonderful job and we are really proud of our work.
