Being Imaginative and Creative⭐️🎨
This week in Reception we have been looking at our core text ‘A Dark Dark Tale’ in further depth. We have been continuing our oral rehearsal of the story, perfecting our actions and ability to retell what happens throughout. Also, we created our own story maps to visually show the plot of the story on a story mountain, focussing on the beginning, middle and end using pictures and key words🏔. Linking to art, the children have been using charcoal, practicing their blending skills, to show the setting of the story, a dark, dark woods. Their creations have truly blown me away!🌲🤩
The children had a special visit this week from a dentist👩🏽⚕️. They learnt about how often and how long we need to brush our teeth, how we should brush them and what foods are good🍎 and bad🍫 for them. Afterwards, they even got to practice their brushing skills on some giant teeth and a big green dinosaur, which was very fun and impressive to see!🦷
We have had a lovely week in Reception, full of being imaginative, creative and reading lots of wonderful books📖📚.
Keep up the great reading and phonics practice!
