What we have been up to so far......

British Values - Individual Liberty

This week we have been learning about individual liberty and what it means to the children. Our focus in Reception has been to talk about ourselves in a positive way. We have been encouraging the children to develop a positive sense of themselves and have provided the opportunity for the children to develop their self-esteem and confidence in their own abilities. The children drew some fantastic self-portraits and spoke about themselves in a positive way. Here are a few examples below…

Internet Safety Day

Smartie the Penguin

For internet safety day in reception we read the story Smartie the Penguin. In the story Smartie came across some problems whilst playing on his ipad and he needed some help. With the class we discussed what Smartie should do. Should he try and fix the problems himself or ask for help from his Mum and Dad? The children all said that Smartie needed to ask for help!

For our follow up activity the children coloured in a picture of Smartie and gave him some advice on how to be safe when using his ipad.

Find your Brave

In Reception we read the story Jack and the Beanstalk as it is part of our topic this half term. We thought about how Jack was feeling when he had to climb up the beanstalk and the children identified that he was brave to do this. We then spoke about times when we had to be brave. The children did a fantastic job at sharing their own experiences of being brave. After circle time each child then acted out times when they were brave and they discussed how they felt during this. Well done Reception!
