The superheroes take over .........

We have been learning all about superheros this term and they have taken over the classroom. They have been leaving us letters to read and hiding all the superhero toys. We have new problems to solve everyday. In this problem the baddies had frozen the good superheros and we had to solve how to get them out.

Bad Egg!!!!

The past few weeks a cheeky 'Bad Egg' has been coming into our classroom and taking our toys from our pigeon holes. We have not been able to capture him. However on Monday morning we came in to find he had been cracked on the floor trying to steal a child's car. The only clues that had been left were bunny feet!!!!! The search has started for the 'Bunny Bandit'.

LOST DOG RASCAL PLEASE FIND!!!!!!

This week Miss Bentley's dog Rascal went missing. he was last seen playing in the woods. Miss Bentley has been ever so upset so we set off to find her dog. We made posters that we displayed around school and asked all staff if they had seen him. We described the dog to the staff and told them what he liked e.g. jam on toast. On Thursday an important report came through that he had been seen in the forest eating some food and playing with his bone. Then on Friday we found him, Miss Bentley was so happy. No job is too small for receptions paw patrol.

Schemas 

Schemas, or patterns of play, are seen in many children as they are exploring their world and trying to find out how things work. We plan sessions that take into account the children's schema's to ensure the session is tailored to their learning needs.

Talk for Writing 

In reception we use a tool called talk for writing to provide the children with the skills they need to tell and write stories as they move up throughout the school. The children will learn to tell a story using a story map that we create together as a group. We will practise and practise telling the story until the children can confidently do it on their own. This half term we are working on The Little Red Hen. Have a look at our video and you can practise at home.

Now we are confident with the story of the Little Red Hen we have innovated it to make own own stories. We had a showtime morning and performed our stories to the class.
