Fine motor skills

In Killigarth Class we have been completing challenges which strengthen our fine motor skills. 



These have included; hammering pumpkins, practising our letter formation in paint and making houses for the Three Little Pigs.

Making houses for the Three Little pigs has helped us to develop our cutting skills. We have explored different materials  and tools to hold our structures together. 

We have been entering into the spooky spirit and sorting and counting different halloween creatures using tweezers. One child found 20 spiders! 

 


The Three Little Pigs

Last week we launched our new enquiry in Killigarth Class 'What would your house be made of?' Mrs G went outside and found a crime scene! We spent time using our detective skills to investigate and use the evidence to help us find out what had happened. We noticed there were several clues; straw, bricks, wood and trotter prints! 

Back in the classroom we used evidence forms to record our findings and mark make in our continuous provision. Working together, we came to the conclusion, after looking at the evidence that it must have been the Three Little Pigs! 

We have been using actions to retell the story and using a story map. We have talked about the trick the 3 Little pigs played on the wolf and thought about the tricks we would use.

Welcome to Killigarth Class! 
We have had a fantastic start to our year in Reception by making new friends, sharing stories and playing together. We have been listening to rhyming stories and singing number songs. We have been making the most of the beautiful weather by learning outdoors in our little playground, swimming in our school pool and making clay faces in the garden.
