Our Learning Experiences (Autumn 2021)
Reception Celebrate The European Day of Languages
Reception enjoyed celebrating the European Day of Languages on 27th September.
We talked about some of the countries on the map of Europe and the children told us which countries they had been to.
The children learnt how to say 'Bonjour' and found out all about France - where it is, how to get there, what school is like and how it is different to school life in England. We talked about Paris and looked at photos of the capital, the children loved seeing the Eiffel Tower twinkling at night.
The children were interested in learning about different French foods, and were surprised to hear that they eat snails and frogs' legs! They enjoyed tasting French bread, Brie cheese and croissants.
We also sang 'Frere Jacques' with actions.
During independent play, the children were able to make a French flag then proudly waved them around.
The Precious Pearl
In our R.E. lesson, the children listened carefully as we read a story Jesus told: 'The Precious Pearl' and this helped us to think about how God is precious and His name is special.
The children helped to decorate God's name to make it look special, then they used sequins and shiny paper to decorate their own names.
