Jack and the Beanstalk in Reception

Our topic this term is Traditional Tales and today we started our learning about Jack and the Beanstalk. We have started to paint a beanstalk and it’s leaves and some children wrote labels for pictures of the character of Jack. After lunch there was a surprise as the Magic Bean man had crept into the classroom during lunchtime and left each child a pot of magic beans. We then counted the beans we had and used an adding machine to find out how many two of us had when we added them altogether.

Our Welly Walk leaders today led their teams beautifully.  When we came back into the classroom the leaders narrated their Welly Walk Journey using the Learning stories that we had created.  The teams were then asked what made their leader a good leader. Here are some of the responses.

“He didn’t let anyone run”

“He listened”

“He helped someone else”

The leaders also were able to adapt their ideas and make decisions when they met Black Hat problems!

Reception visit the Fire Station

Reception have had a wonderful visit to Rickmansworth Fire Station today.  We travelled to the Fire Station by bus.  As we left the bus stop and walked to the Fire Station, a member of the public commented on the excellent behaviour of the children and how they were a credit to the school.  They certainly are and a credit to their parents too!

The children were able to see the equipment on the fire engine, sit in the fire engine and each child had a turn at squirting the hose.

Mrs Scourfield and Miss Heydarzadeh had been sponsored to wear their Children in Need Onezies to the Fire Station and raised £30 for Children in Need.
