What a busy week we’ve had in reception. One of the stories we enjoyed was a firm favourite called ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’. The story is about a family that waded through the grass, splashed through the river and squelched through the mud in search of a bear! The children loved joining in with the chant and making up their own actions!
- In maths this week we have been investigating the numbers within 7. Through games and practical experiences, the children learnt that 7 is made up of smaller parts for example 7 can be made of 5 and 2.
- For letters and sounds we continue to work on our phase 3 sounds. Please refer to the phonics guidance in our home learning where you can access helpful videos to help your child practise at home. We have been reading words with double letters such as ‘rubber’, ‘butter’, ‘dinner’ as well as chunking up longer words such as ‘rubb/ish’ and ‘tim/id’.
- For our cooking activity this week both our reception classes made cupcakes. We weighed out the ingredients, mixed them together and scooped the mixture into cupcake cases ready for the oven. The children really enjoyed munching them all up at the end of the day eating every last crumb!
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 lovely weekend – The Foundation Stage Team
