Welcome to Miss Jackson’s class
Welcome to our class page. We will keep you updated on all of the exciting things we do in Reception!
During Plan, do, review the children have been making ‘Fairy gardens’ in the cut and stick. We decided to introduce a new area in our classroom in order for the children to explore their ideas further. We set up some provocations for the children to explore and it has been very interesting watching the children explore their imagination. We can’t wait to see how the children develop this further!
The children in Reception have been excited to play in their new travel agents! The children have been interested in holidays so we decided to change the role play area. Mrs McKinnell and I took small groups of children into the travel agents to show them the different jobs that need to be carried out. Isaac was a natural and is now in charge of staff development within ‘Kibblesworth Travel’. The children have selected a wide range of holiday destinations from Seahouses to Botswana! Once all of the children are confident were hoping to open a travel money bureau-watch this space!
In Early Years we promote child initiated learning and we encourage the children to follow their own interests. We do this through ‘plan, do, review’ by encouraging the children to create their own ‘plan’, thinking about which area they would like to plan in, what they would like to use and how they will achieve this. During ‘review’ time the children reflect on their learning, thinking about what they would change and where they would like to take their learning next. During plan, do, review some of the children planned to build a campfire outside. They discussed and negotiated what each person would do. Oliver was in charge of setting out the plates and cutlery, Harvey picked some leeks from the allotment and Elliott was in charge of ‘cooking’ the food. The children discussed which tool would be the best to chop up the leeks and they also risk assessed how they would do this safely. During review time the children explained that next time they would like to improve their plan by having a real fire so they could toast some marshmallows. The children planned what songs they would like to sing in the yurt and they made invitations inviting all of the children. As you can see we had lots of fun!
