The Reception children had a great time outside as part of their welly Wednesday activities. First they walked around the field creating the new sounds they had learned in phonics, i.e. a huge letter s moved across the field as they repeated; follow Jake the snake around the lake. Then they used small magnifying glasses to investigate their environment, they looked in bushes around the edges of the field and found beetles and bugs in the hedges. Some children picked up leaves and flowers while others were more interested in seeing how tall the baby saplings are growing.
