During Autumn 2 Reception had a new sand pit so all the children have enjoyed exploring this. They have used various skills including burying, filling, emptying and scooping in the sand pit. These skills are also a good way to improve the children’s fine and gross motor movement. We have enjoyed various activities to improve our fine motor movement including picking up pom poms using tweezers to create a colourful Christmas tree. The children participate in daily dough disco to help build their muscles to help them to write. We have celebrated Diwali in Reception and created out own Diva lamps. We participated in World Nursery Rhyme Week, singing and focusing on a nursery rhyme each day: Old MacDonald had a farm; Miss Polly had a Dolly, Five Little Speckled Frogs, The Wheels on the Bus and Hickory Dickory Dock. We also made some rice crispy Christmas pudding cakes whilst celebrating Christmas. The children have enjoyed finishing the term with Christmas activities including Christmas dinner, party and film day.
