Early Years Explore Time
On Wednesday Reception learners visited iCAN PLAY for Explore time to develop their social and learning skills. They had a lovely time enjoying and sharing our lovely iCAN PLAY indoor and outdoor play areas. It was a great opportunity for Reception learners to meet Nursery and iCAN PLAY learners and share their space.
This week we have been busy learning about 'My Body'. We sang action songs and looked at non-fiction books to
learn and identify the names of our body parts.
We also painted and decorated body outlines and faces.
Next week we will focus on our families.
This week we looked at 2-D shapes. We made prints on large shapes. We also practised counting 1 to 10 using different objects such as buttons and teddies.
iCAN PLAY learners used various counters to practise counting 0-5. They also enjoyed singing number rhymes and songs.

In our phonics session we continue working on tuning into sounds, playing Phase 1 games and songs from ‘Letters and Sounds' phonics programme such as Metal Mike, Bertha the bus, Old MacDonald had a farm and the silly soup.
In our numeracy session we learned to order numbers from 1-10,and also looked through all the basic shapes and their properties.
We continued working with our first personal goal: being adaptable, by talking about it during circle time and reading many books and writing speech bubbles on how we have been adaptable at school and at home.
