Reception – Owls

We’ve started a new Topic called ‘We are Heroes’.

As we return to school, we are busy thinking about the people in our community who are our very own superheroes. We will be learning about the role of lots of different professions. We start the year by looking at the role of doctors and nurses. We will be asking questions about where they work, what they do and how. We will then explore the roles of teachers, the police, the fire service, and vets.
Our literacy texts this term will be from the Supertato series of books. We will explore and link the differing professions within our community to our texts. So far, we have thought carefully about the different medical treatments we’ve given our patients due to Evil Pea’s antics. Here is a link to the story we are learning in class over the next coming weeks.

Zones of Regulation

As a school we have a focus on well-being. We have been learning all about the Zones of Regulation. The children have been considering different emotions, facial expressions and how we can work out other people’s feelings. We continually discuss lots of different emotions and what can cause people to experience different feelings.

On a day-to-day basis, as different scenarios arise, we think carefully about how we can support and help our friends feel better when they are experiencing unexpected feelings. We have read different stories since the beginning of term and one story we have used regularly is The Colour Monster. The Colour Monster has helped us to label our emotions during the school day. When we are expressing our feelings, we use our Zones of Regulation display board to label our emotions. Here is a link to different texts we use in class to help support our understanding of feelings and emotions.

Learning to Subitise! This is when you are able to look at a group of objects and know how many there are without counting.

We had fun counting things in our environment.
