In our nature smart area we have been exploring leaves, sticks and stones using magnifying glasses.
In the arts and crafts area we made trains and painted with ice cubes.
This week in maths we have been learning to recognise simple 2D shapes through playing a cooperative learning structure game called Corners. We had fun going on a shape hunt around school spotting shapes in the environment.
This week in phonics we have been revising rhyming words through cooperative structure game mix-pair and share. We also enjoyed making marks with sand and glitter and looking at picture books in our book area.
In Reception this week we had fun going on a dinosaur hunt. We had so much fun learning and acting out the story. We are building our knowledge of dinosaur names and features and really thinking about wow words to describe each dinosaur. We have also made our very own volcano and saw it erupt! Arghhhhh!
We have been working very hard in practising for our joint assembly about mini-beasts next week and hope all our parents can join us.
