Buried Treasure!

Reception have been busy this week making their own treasure maps using the age old tradition of tea bags to make them look old! First they started by drawing their maps, and marking where the treasure was hidden with and ‘X marks the spot’. They also labelled some key features and some children even included a compass. Next they screwed up their maps carefully, there was a few shocked faces at this part. Finally they painted the crumpled maps with tea bags to give them that old weathered affect. The results were pretty impressive.

As the children made their maps there was much discussion over what features were on their desert islands and the route you needed to take to successfully rescue the treasure. Let’s hope these maps stay hidden from the rouge pirates that kidnapped the class bears on Monday! 

“I’ve drawn a cave here, you have to creep through it.” Maysa 
“Past the trees and over the river.” Varvara 
“These tea bags make it look really old and wrinkly!” Olivia 

Fine Motor Football!

Reception have been putting their fine motor skills to the test this week as they played finger football. The game took a lot of control and communication between team mates. Strengthening the fine motor muscles in our fingers and hands is crucial to being able to hold a pencil correctly and to form letters and write. It is amazing to see how much this has developed in everyone since September. As the children played there was lots of discussion about the world cup. They also discussed which team they were on, which player they wanted to be as well as keeping track of the scores. It will be of no surprise that everyone wanted to play for England, and that we won every game!

“Goal! I scored again! We beat Sweden at the weekend.” Lucas 
“This is really tricky.” Ellie-Jane 
“I played football with my cousins on Sunday, I won!” Finley

Pirate invasion!

Today reception had a shock when they discovered that their bears and monkeys had been taken hostage by the pirates! Luckily the pirates left a trail of clues around the school to help the children work out where to find their beloved class mascots.

We followed the clues past the apple trees, the basketball hoops, the gym, the sandpit, the library and back into our own classrooms!

Nathaniel: "Look another clue!"

Faizah: "We can use our phonics to read it!"

Aksanan: "It's cheeky monkey!"

Will the bears ever come back from the pirates or have they been forced to walk the plank? Watch this space to find out the next instalment in the hostage saga!
