Reception – Spring Week 11
We have continued with our theme of ‘into the country’ this week as well as exploring the signs of spring we are starting to notice in the environment around us. One story we enjoyed was the traditional tale of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, most of the children were familiar with the story and we explored various different versions.
- We have been working on ‘doubling’ in maths. The children have been excellent at spotting doubles and explaining that doubles have ‘two equal parts’ that add together to make the whole. We have also been learning about odd and even numbers between 1-10.
- Our phase 3 letters and sounds journey continues and we have been reading and spelling longer words, words that end ‘-ing’ and compound words. The children have been working so hard have been applying these skills to their guided reading and writing.
- As part of our ‘healthy me’ topic we have been talking about personal hygiene and how to keep our bodies clean. The children talked about the importance of bathing regularly, tooth brushing twice a day, hand washing and wearing clean clothes.
- Finally, we did some more cooking this week, we had a great time baking bread. The children explored different types of bread from around the world before making bread rolls which we enjoyed at snack time with some butter and jam!
We are collecting recycled materials for our junk modelling station. Ideally, we would like small boxes, washed yoghurt pots, kitchen rolls (no toilet rolls please) and small containers. Please can we ask that any recycled material that previously had nut products inside do not come in due to allergies that we have in school. Please could the items be brought in a bag. Thank you
Have a great weekend – The Foundation Stage Team
