Reception

Friday 12th March 2021

It has been truly wonderful to have all the children back at school. We have had a lovely week catching up with each other.

Huge eggs appeared in our classrooms this week! We tried to think about what type of eggs they could be and we were encouraged to build a nest and write notices to keep them safe.  We discovered that they were dinosaur eggs so, we decided to find out more about dinosaurs. 

Science Day - We were encouraged to be creative and think of innovative designs to build some crunchy architecture with biscuits and edible cement.

This week we have been learning all about animals that live in the jungle! We read 'Rumble in the Jungle' and wrote about our favourite animals using adjectives. We also recorded ourselves reading our descriptions aloud. In Maths, we have been sharing amounts into equal groups. We also celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as our favourite book character.

This week was Children's Mental Health week. Mrs Thomas read us the story 'Ruby's Worry' by Tom Percival and we made our own Worry Boxes to encourage us to share our worries. We also talked about activities that make us happy and partook in some of these over the course of the week.

This week we read 'Handa's Surprise'. We drew and labelled the different fruits Handa put in her basket. We also made our own basket of fruit and acted out the story. 
In maths, we have been learning about adding and subtracting using a number tract.

We have had another busy week learning from home! We listened to Mr Gauci read 'The Way Back Home' by Oliver Jeffers. We wrote words to describe Space, we created our own story maps, we made healthy space themed snacks and some of us designed and built our own jet packs. Take a look at our SPACE GALLERY!

This week our focus book was 'Aliens Love Underpants'. We created our very own alien and then used our phonic knowledge to write words and sentences to describe our alien. Remember to look in our Gallery to see some of our amazing learning.

We are currently learning remotely and our teachers have been so impressed with the quality of the work we have been submiting on Class Dojo. 
Our new topic is SPACE and this week our focus book was 'Whatever Next!' by Jill Murphy. As part of our learning we acted out the story, made a healthy lunch to eat on the moon, made rockets and wrote a list of what we would bring to Space.
