Wednesday 1st July - Daily Routine

Date: 1st Jul 2020 @ 3:15pm

In Reception this week, we have been learning about time. This afternoon, Pink Bubble have been thinking carefully about what they do in their daily routine. They were able to draw pictures and sequence a timeline of events, they could even talk about what they were doing at each stage of the day! Take a look at the video below…

Good Morning Everyone, 

Wow!! It's the 1st of July!!! A few more weeks and it will be the Summer Holidays. I usually get excited about going abroad on an aeroplane, however this year we have decided to stay home and have lots of days out along with settling into my new house (hopefully!). 

Yesterday Pink and Purple bubbles had a great time in school dancing along to TikTok dances and writing messages for their friends at home. If you haven't watched the videos please check out the RAI and REW class pages and scroll to the blogs.

We have had lots of fun in Reception today, Pink Bubble have wanted to spend their day dancing and making Tik Toks! This morning we thought carefully about the question ‘what would you eat for breakfast if you were a pirate?’ We had some very creative ideas and the children wrote some fantastic sentences! This afternoon, we have been very busy making our own paper plate clocks and writing messages in bottles to our friends at home. Take a listen to the videos below to hear the children’s special messages…

We have been very busy in reception today! This morning Pink Bubble Buddies thought about the question, 'What would you look like if you were a pirate?' Children were then able to draw and label their own pirate pictures! This afternoon, children made a visual timetable for 'Captain Clock' where they were able to correctly order their day at school. We then spent the afternoon making pirate hooks using plastic cups and tinfoil, ahoy me hearties!!🏴‍☠️🏝

Good Morning Everyone, 

How are you all? Hope you had a lovely weekend even though the rain was back. I think I got used to all the lovely sunny weather we had last week. Let's hope it comes back soon. I'm really pleased as I ran over 4km on Sunday doing my running APP called 'Coach to 5K.' I ran for over 20 minutes without stopping!! I have 4 weeks left on this programme and hopefully I will be able to run over 5K. What exercise activities have you been doing? It's very importrant to keep your body healthy and moving. Why not email and tell us what exercises have you been doing...

Good Luck with all your learning today. I know I can't wait to do the learning with the Purple bubble in school and Miss Williams with the Pink bubble.

Hello Ravensbury wildlife lovers,

The end of another week and it’s going to be a little cooler today. It was so hot yesterday again! I think the ducks will be happy with the rain later.

Today’s challenge is to use your ears as the sun sets tonight. Listen for the wildlife concert that is played in your back garden every evening. You could record it and email the concert to me.

Have a wonderful, sunny and safe Thursday.

Here’s another update on the Purple Bubble in school. Today we created some Pirate identities and thought of our Pirate names. We then made a treasure map which led us to a cold and delicious treat that Miss Wolfenden shared with us. Thanks again! We loved it!!

Hello everybody,

It’s Thursday already! It was so hot yesterday and it looks like it’s going to be another scorcher today so make sure you wear a hat and put your sun cream on when you’re out in the wild today.

Today’s challenge is to make an accessory out of flowers. I used to love to make daisy chains when I was a little girl. Can you make something to add to your outfit or to give to someone you love?

Have a wonderful, sunny and safe Thursday.

This afternoon in Reception Purple Bubble we made our very own rocking Pirate boats. We used a paper plate and added tissue paper to design it and put a sail on it. Tomorrow we will become pirates and make our very own Pirate identities and think of a super Pirate name. We might even make a treasure map and look for treasure!!

 Aaaargh!!💎

Welcome to another wild Wednesday challenge.

Today’s challenge is to use nature to create a piece of art. Please only use leaves and twigs and flowers that have naturally fallen to the floor. If it has fallen onto the floor it’s nature’s gift to you. You could press leaves or a flower in a book or create a picture.

Good Morning Everyone!

It's going to be a sunny day today. Why not take your home learning outside in the garden...? Make sure you are safe and have plenty of suncream on and keep drinking lots of water. 

The children in school have settled in really well and miss everyone but are doing well with our new way of learning in Reception. On Friday we will post some photos of school and home learning in our Celebration Blog.
