This week we have been looking at rooms in the house. We painted and drew pictures of our favourite rooms in the house and discussed what are the furniture/things we need in the rooms. We role played arranging different rooms using wooden small world furniture in groups.
This week we have been super busy learning to practise writing and reacognising our names. We have also been learning to listen to the first sound in our names through various games and activities. iCANPLAY learners have been making some lovely mark making on sand and flour using their fingers and paint brushes.
We all had fun exploring musical instruments and performing an action to match a musical instrument.
This week in Maths we have been exploring and learning 2D SHAPES using cooperative learning structures. We played corners and enjoyed making different shapes in groups using wooden blocks.
We had fun counting and recogninsing numbers through number rhymes, songs and games.
In Learning block 5 we're learning about DINOSAURS! This week we had an exciting Entry Point. On Thursday 7th March Reception visited the Jurassic Kingdom Dinosaur Park. This was a fantastic way to start our new topic and test our knowledge of dinosaur as we encountered gigantic, realistic dinosaur models around the park. Lots of us got a fright when the models began to move and ROAR loudly in our ears. We were lucky enough to take a ride on some dinosaurs and also encounter the different dinosaurs in various environment areas. We enjoyed assembling the giant dinosaur puzzles in the park in a group working on our personal goals. We had a lot fun, it was a great way to begin our topic; Dinosaur. Before our trip to Dinosaur Park our learners were very excited as we had a brainstorming session about dinosaur in the beginning of this week and were excited to discuss about paleontologists and what they do. The learners were happily digging for dinosaur bones in the tuff spot. Everyone was very resilient, adaptable and worked cooperatively to find all of the dinosaur bones.
This week in phonics we have been revising phase 2, learning to segment and blend all the CVC words.
This week in Maths we introduce about simple subtraction through songs, games and activities. We used different small world animals for the activities. We also touch base with simple addition using number line.
