Our theme this week has been Birthdays and we explored the meaning of Advent and Jesus' Birthday.
In literacy and RE we wrote about the onset of Advent.
We also began learning some of our Christmas songs for our Christmas performance. We definitely have many budding singers.
We enjoyed making our own Christmas tree decorations and placing some of these on our school Christmas tree for 3K's Advent assembly.
In maths we looked at money for 'Financial Capability' week. This was a tricky concept to grasp but we were all money superstars by the end of the week.
During PE we enjoyed an indoor athletics session. The organiser commented on how well behaved reception were and their knowledge of what makes our bodies healthy:
Here are some other things we got up to this week:
Next week in literacy we will be looking at books from our bookstart packs that the children will receive. In maths we will be reviewing all the things we have learnt so far this Autumn term.
We will continue to practise for our Christmas performance and create some more Christmas arts and crafts.
The travelling crib will also begin its journey at the start of Advent next week...
Have a lovely weekend!
