Safer Internet Day 

 

Today in Reception. We talked about how we go online; I-pads, tablets, phones. We also talked about what our favourite way was to go online. We discussed what we enjoy doing online such as playing games, youTube, Netlfix etc. We had a discussion about making good choices and the different symbols online that mean yes or no to help us make a good choice. 

 

This week in the provision the children had to follow the muddy footprints and read the clues ; he is mad. He is bad. He is green. He is round. He is cold. The children solved the mystery and drew a wanted picture for him.

We have been learning a new song called, 'Dinosaur stomp.' We listen to the music first and talked about how it made us feel. After we tried to tap to the music.

We talked about the different sounds some of the instruments make; low sound, high sound.
