R1 Hedgehog class
R2 Owl Class
The children worked really hard at preparing for the Christmas show and then performing it to the school and their parents. We are very proud of the way they learnt the Christmas story and sang a range of Christmas songs in the play. Well done Reception!
This week we have been talking about Bonfire Night. The children have enjoyed making their own fireworks using paint, chalks, crayons and even leaves!
In Owl Class we have been practising recognising Numicon. Some of the children went on a hunt in the outdoor area to find the giant Numicon and place it in order from 1 to 10. We have also been looking at using Numicon to make different numbers, for example ‘4 and 2 make 6’ and ‘8 and 2 make 10’.
Three Billy Goats Gruff
This half term, we have enjoyed learning the story ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’. Once we had practised the story, we created a class story map to help us to remember it. The children took part in a variety of activities to develop their learning linked to the story. They made their own puppets of the characters from the story and put on puppet shows for others to watch. Additionally, they designed and created their own bridges using different construction toys. They also painted their own trolls and carefully cut them out.
