Reception Share Smiles Far and Wide

Reception Share Smiles Far and Wide

In Reception a lot of our learning is directed by the children, and this is no different during remote learning. This half term the children have chosen to focus on the topic ‘Sharing Smiles’. Before Christmas they had a little think about the different things we could do to share smiles as far and wide as we could. They came up with lots of fantastic ideas, here are a couple that they are working on at the moment:

Sponsored Read:

The children are taking part in a sponsored read to raise money to put together some Smile Hampers for our amazing NHS Staff. They have each decorated a jar to put their sponsorship money in and each time they read they earn a little bit more money. The companies ‘Dr Paw Paw’, 'Nursems' and 'Frontline Coffee'  have heard about what the Reception children are up to and they have offered to donate some products to put into the hampers, showing that even if you’re little you can do a lot.

Community smiles project:

The children have been decorating stones with brightly coloured patterns and pictures with the hashtag #skippershill. They have then hidden their stones around their local area for people to find and re-hide. We are wondering if any of our other Skippers friends might have spotted any? 

We would love to extend this project out to the wider Skipper community  and invite you to decorate some stones with happy pictures or messages, with the #skippershill and to hide them around your local community. Lets see how far we can make people smile! 

Remember to keep an eye out for other Skippers Stones!
