Adventurers (Nursery and Reception)

Welcome to the Adventurers class page. We will be uploading weekly updates from our class so check back each week to see what we have been getting up to.

Autumn 2020

Autumn 1 Week 3

This week, we welcomed all of our Nursery children into our class and the Reception children have been great role models, showing them our new routines and rules. The Nursery children started their Phonics on Tuesday and are practising their listening skills. The Reception children have learnt 3 new sounds this week, t, p and i. On Wednesday, the Reception children went to Forest School and had a great time exploring this new environment. We are looking forward to Nursery coming with us next week. On Friday afternoons, we cook with the Reception children and this week, we made sandwiches.

It has been a busy week! Have a look at this week's photos.

Autumn 1 Week 2

We welcomed all of the Reception children into our class on Monday this week and some of our Nursery children on Friday. They are all settling in well, making lots of friends, trying new things, and most importantly, having fun! Take a look at this week's photos.

Autumn 1 Week 1

The Reception children have had a great start to their time in Adventurers. They have spent the first two days exploring their new classroom and finding lots of things to do. Have a look at what we have been doing.

Have a lovely summer and I look forward to seeing you all in September!

Home Learning for Adventurers

Please find the letter regarding home learning for Adventurers children here.

This morning, we were lucky enough to be visited by Britain's tallest man and the World's tallest basketball player. We went to assembly where we all sat and listened quietly whilst he told us about himself and then later on this morning, he came in and spoke to us about his life and his career. The children were amazed to see how tall he was  and were in awe of his ball skills. Take a look at our photos and videos below.

This half term, our topic is Traditional Tales. We are focusing on a different story each week and this week, we are looking at Jack and the Beanstalk. The children are growing their own beanstalks so keep returning to our page to see their progress.

Spring Term 1

This morning, the children all enjoyed their Balanceability session, learning to ride balance bikes. We didn't let the rain stop us and by the end of the session, the children were whizzing along the playground!

On Thursday, we joined the Explorers and Pioneers children to take part in the BBC live music lesson, Bring the Noise. The children had great fun singing along and dancing with the lesson.

Our children have all settled in well in to Adventurers. On Wednesday, we all put our wellies on and went on an adventure to the forest (the trees down the hill this week), to see what we could find. The children all enjoyed searching for the different things and were really excited when we added some competition to our adventure. I asked the children who could find the biggest leaf, so they all went searching and even got Mrs Wenman involved! We are all excited to go to the real forest next week!
