Owl Hunt

We had a letter from Penelope the peacock asking if we could help her to find her friend Owlberta. We followed the clues and we managed to find her high up in a tree in our little wood. We brought her back into school and put her in our nice dark cave so she could have a rest.

We have been busy working on the story "Wow! Said the owl.  The little owl stays awake all day to see what the daytime world is like. She is amazed by all the colours she sees. We made our own story maps to show where the owl went in the story. We also made new settings for the owl to visit.

Outdoor Play

We have been playing lots of games with our coach Dan. We have been trying to move in different directions and in different ways. We have also been negotiating space this is very hard to do in Reception.

Musical composition

We have been making our own music in class this week. We picked an instrument and then we painted the sounds to help us play the music. We had great fun.

We have been exploring the world around us in our outdoor area. We have had lots of fun.
