This week Reception have been celebrating the new calendar year. At welcome time, we changed our calendar to January 2022 and reminded ourselves of the months in a year. We watched a video clip of the New Year’s Eve firework display in London and watched Big Ben chime 12 0’Clock. The children enjoyed making up their own firework dances using coloured scarves. We also listened to the story, Squirrel’s New Year’s Resolution by Pat Miller. The children then thought about things that they would like to achieve this year and wrote their own new year’s resolutions. They came up with some super ideas including: Learning to swim; riding bikes without stabilisers; helping with jobs at home; learning to read plus many more. Take a look at the photos of some of the activities we have been doing.
