Reception are learning to tell the story of The Three Little Pigs. We can tell the story with actions and have written our own story map.
Discuss with your child how he feels.
Every day we do Plan,Do, Review! This is a time where we get to discuss where we would like to learn and talk to our partners about what we want to do. We can choose from a number of activities in the creative area, outdoor area, construction area, sand and water play, writing table, reading corner, role play area etc. We recognise that “we are not just playing, we are always learning!” but we always have fun challenging ourselves.
October is Black History Month. To celebrate this we spent all day learning about Mae Jemison; the first African- American woman to go to space. We had lots of fun playing on the NASA website, counting stars in the moon gel, fishing for number rockets, painting splatter stars and making papier mache planets. We all went home very messy, but very happy!!!
This week we have been looking at counting and numbers. It is important we practise our number recognition on a very regular basis.
We have started our work on phonics this week. Parents often ask about the letter sounds or how to support their children at home with this. Here is a short film to give you some ideas and also to support you with saying the letter sounds. Enjoy!!
We worked hard making our own patterns this week. We are so good at making patterns that today we worked together to make some harder patterns.
We dressed up as different characters in the role play area.
