Trolls are in Reception!

By Reception No Comments

What a busy week it has been in Reception! Following on from the children’s interest in the characters in The Three Billy Goats Gruff story, the children were amused by the Troll and his unusual characteristics. We have had a week of scary, gruesome and creepy monsters! In the Imaginary Room the children used construction and imaginative ideas to create a den for the monsters to hide in. Additionally, in the Explorers Room they have enjoyed collating responses from their peers to create a tally chart of their favourite monsters; some children counted in fives to find the total. In the Art Studio, it has been particularly lively with monster creations; this included making clay monsters, junk modelling, and blow painting using straws and masks of characters from ‘Where the Wild Things Are’. We have noticed that this interest has encouraged many children to confidently communicate and develop their social skills.

Library Club

Every Monday and Friday lunchtime, the school library is open between 12:15 and 12:45pm – come alone for some relaxation or with a friend and share a book.

Book Swap Stop

It’s totally free and a great way of recycling reading material! Visit the Book Swap Stop in the main reception area and begin swapping; bring in a book you no longer wish to own (in good condition) and take a new one, to keep, in its place.
