Reception - Owls and Otters

We love learning in Owls and Otters. We are amazing at maths and learn a little more every day using our self-registration board we know who is here today and who arrived first. We look forward to things that are happening soon and are very good at thinking about how many more sleeps!

We play outside in our garden every day – it’s great! We can explore the woods and love to play in our mud kitchen. We make mud pies, mud pancakes mud soup and mud tea in our mud kitchen! We have a big sandpit and are really good at making cement and building walls. We sometimes build a river so deep we think it might go to the other side of the world! One of our favourite things to do is make an obstacle course with our crates and planks, sometimes we need it to be safe from the sharks in the deep blue sea!

We practise learning new sounds and words every day and we are reading too! Every day we vote for the book that we would like to read together and work out which book is the winner by being magic mathematicians. We are very democratic in Owls and Otters! We talk about what we can see and what we notice, it’s always interesting to find out more about what we all know and think.

We learn all about what foods are good for us and how to keep our teeth clean and healthy. We love our cooking sessions, we make lots of different recipes and they’re all really yummy!

One of our favourite days of the week is when we go to ‘the theatre’ with our Helicopter Stories. We take turns to create a story, act it out and celebrate being great story tellers and story actors.

We love learning together “We play with everything you want!”.
