Reception have been learning about Healthy Lifestyles. We talked about different things you need to consider and came up with this Popplet...



We launched the topic with a Talk 4 Writing project on The Hare and The Tortoise...

Some fantastic writing with features of narrative followed...




and added some challenge with some wordsquares




Exercise was practised and practised through Relay races which were shared with parents on EYFS Sports Day. The children balanced quoits on their heads, beanbags on bats, sprinting, hurdle race and who can forget the dressing up race?








Hygiene was addressed through discussion and creating these lovely body images and adding helpful quotes ...








The healthy was discussed through reading two Big non-fiction Books and having healthy school dinners and still life drawing 'a fruit bowl', size ordering of Mr Carrot Club and classifying fruit healthy and unhealthy foods amongst other activities...












And finally the most popular aspect of the topic was the Role Play Spa and Gym...which was enjoyed by all the children and any passing staff members feeling stressed and our recent visitor had his hair washed!















And finally the children now understand the need to drink lots of water 'to make your brain work better' and the need to rest or sleep is appreciated by all of us.

Reception New Topic - Potions


This new, book based topic, has really captured the children's imagination. The thought of magical characters in books creating potions for all sorts of wild and crazy spells has really got them talking, writing, role playing, adding up ingredients and being extremely creative.


The children love the Magic Potions Shop...


 

 

    "would you like some eyeballs?"
 





We've been reading lots of magical books.



 



Children have been making weird and wonderful potions and writing about the wacky ingredients … bats, frogs, rats tails, unicorn horns, princess hair, phoenix feathers, maggots etc etc.




 

 

 


We have been adding up the ingredients in our potions...


And creating wands...
