Reception – Mole



  • Collage creations

    This week we have been investigating types of materials and how we can use them in different ways. We used cutting and sticking skills to produce our very own collage. We discussed the appropriate colours and materials that could be used. 
  • Firework fun!

    This week in Mole class we have been discussing bonfire night and how fireworks are used to celebrate. We then used our painting skills to create our firework paintings. We had to ensure that our firework paintings were colourful and fun. 
  • Phonics

    This term in Mole class we have had a great focus on learning our sounds in phonics. In six weeks, we have managed to learn most of the sounds, read and write. During today’s phonics lesson, the children were discussing how amazed and proud they were of each other. Keep up the great work Mole class!
  • Tap a shape

    The children have been working really hard over the last few weeks on developing their gross and fine motor skills. This week we had a go at ‘tap a shape’. Children used a pin and hammer to tap a shape into the board. This took a lot of resilience from the children. 

  • Moon Festival

    This week in Mole class we have been comparing Harvest in the UK with China. We researched about the Chinese moon festival, made some mooncakes and some lanterns. We used our cutting skills to create our lanterns. 
  • Wow Wall!

    In Mole class we have been learning about our distinctive features. We worked on what makes us unique, our similarities and differences. Using this information the children created self-portraits using a range of colouring pencils and paints.
