Spring 1: week 3

We have yet again had another enjoyable week in reception. The children especially enjoyed having parents in each morning and sharing their learning journals. It was lovely to see their faces light up showing you what they have been getting up to.

Our theme this week was Traditional Tales, we focused particularly on The Three Billy Goats Gruff. The children retold the story through whole class and small group drama, this helped them learn it off by heart. Furthermore, they created some wonderful storyboards and their own books.

In maths we concentrated on subtraction. We practised using the correct signs within our number sentences.

During RE we role-played the story when Mary and Joseph took Jesus to the temple.

In PE we continued retelling the story of 'We're going on a bear hunt'. We split ourselves into two halves and watched each others performances and gave each other feedback.

Here are some other things we got up to this week:

Making up our own fairy tales on the ipads

reading 'real' and 'nonsense' words.

Preview of learning for next week:
Our theme for next week is The Three Little Pigs. In Literacy we will be learning this story and retelling it through role-play and writing. We will also be swapping classrooms and sharing stories with the Nursery staff.  In maths we will be concentrating on language related to time and exploring clocks.

Have a lovely weekend
