Reception Team – Mrs Houghton and Mrs Martin                                          Nursery Team – Miss Witte and Mr Loadman

Week Beginning 14.10.19

Another busy week!

In Nursery we are sharing lots of stories for pleasure and are bringing in our books from home to share. We are reading stories more than once so we get familiar to the events in the story and the language used.

In Nursery and Reception we had a visit from a lady who taught us to be Ice Cats. We played different games that will help us stay safe in lots of ways.

We can crouch like a Hedgehog, squash like a Superhero, move like a train and growl like an Ice Cat.

Week Beginning 7.10.19

This week we have talked about Houghton Feast, the parade, fireworks and the fairground rides.  We love to celebrate Houghton Feast in Houghton.

We made firework pictures with chalks and pastels. We used straight and curved lines, we smudged some of our marks to give them a different effect. We also used the computer program Purple Mash to make Firework images.  The children used words to describe the sounds that they could hear. 

“bang”   “rainbow sky”   “boom”   “shine”   “sparkle”   “twinkle”

Thank you for the support during the parade, we really do appreciate it.

Week Beginning 30.9.19

Wow! Wow!

We had out first Coastal Schools session this week. We had an fantastic time, we observed the effect the weather has on the coast as it was a wet, dull day. There were channels of flood water and the colours of the skyline were different due to the weather conditions. We did not let the weather stop us, we just dressed appropriately to still have a brilliant learning experience.

We had a scavenger hunt and found lots of different materials on the beach, we sorted and matched and them made a natural number line using what we had found. We cannot wait till our next session!!

We have worked really hard this week and had lots of fun with a Maths Escape Room challenge. We had to work in teams, communicate clearly with each other, listen to instructions and solve maths puzzles and problems.
