Hello Reception class,
We have had another busy week in school. It's been rainy and sunny all week. Mr Weatherman is still a little confused!
If you're at home, we hope you're well and we are thinking of you.
The children in school have continued to work hard, they have been very busy.
In Literacy this week the children have been reading the story of The Three Little Pigs, they have listened to it, sequenced it in the correct it, created a story map and written their own version using their story maps.
In Maths, we have been learning about odd and even numbers. The children are very good at explaining that "even numbers can be shared in half (evenly)" and "odd numbers can't be shared in half". They have practised with number lines outside on the playground, they have sorted numbers and also coloured odd and even numbers to spot the pattern.
In Topic, the theme has been 'Small Things'. The children have been looking for different small things in our immediate environment and discussing why they are pretty. They have done some painting with just their fingertips and created a collage with small things that they collected from our school environment.
Mr Simmonds has been practising Yoga with the children this week which they particularly enjoyed, the children needed to concentrate really well on the stretches. They have also been doing lots of running and they have practised their hopping and skipping.
We started our Religious Education Topic of ‘Friends’ at the beginning of this term.The children heard the story of ‘The Selfish Crocodile’ and discussed how the mouse was a good friend and why. The children talked about their own friends and whatthey thought should happen when friendships go wrong to make things right again.Listening to the Bible, they heard about Jesus’ special friends and his rule – John 13:34-35.‘Love one another, I love each one of you, and I want you to love one another.’
