Term 2b Week 3
Reception have been recording parts of The Very Hungry Caterpillar story this week, working hard to hear and record all of the sounds in all of the words. Our Bug Garden is also getting nicely full with fantastic models the children have made at home.
T2b Week 2
We have been learning the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and drawing story maps to help us remember all of the different parts. Here is our class smart board story map, can you use it to tell the story?
T2b Week 1
This week is art week, we sat down this morning and recorded our thoughts about what art is.
Term 2a Week 6
Reception have been thinking about one less than, our memory jogger is '1 less than means take away 1'. We have also had a session of Yoga Bugs where we stretched and balanced along to the story of 'The 3 Little Pigs'.
Term 2a Week 5
We have continued our Chinese New Year theme, writing about the legend of the animal race, ordering the ordinal numbers in maths and taste testing some Chinese food.
This week we are thinking about celebrations for Chinese New Year. We have made our own dragons to do a dragon dance!
Term 2a Week 4
We have been reading 'Oi Frog' and writing our own rhyming rules, we also had come and see morning where parents came in to see how hard we work in Reception. Lots of children have been brining in lovely home work and getting their sheets stamped, well done everyone who has done some.
Term 2a Week 3
This week we have been thinking about 3D shapes cube, cuboid, and sphere. Looking at their properties and using mathematical language to describe them, face, edge, corner, flat, curve. We have also been writing our own 'That's Not My Cat...' story. Jen Brown came to school to tell us about the importance of reading for pleasure and to give us some books.
Following a special request from reception here is the latest song Mrs Gill is teaching us at singing assemblies.
T2a Week 2
Reception have been making numbers beyond 10 using lots of different equipment, numicon tiles, number rods, paper chains and written numerals. We have stretched our understanding of what makes a teen number by using part, part, whole models to add two numbers together or to see what is left when we take away 10.
Term 2a Week 1
We have had a busy first week back at school with the pantomime trip on Thursday and getting back into our routine after the two week Christmas holiday.
We have been writing about what we did during the holidays, thinking about rhyming words and been getting to grips with numbers beyond 10, ordering them, recognising them, counting them and using numicon to make them, remembering that the 1 at the beginning means 10 (not one).
