This week we have been learning about healthy and unhealthy food. We enjoyed making a healthy Pizza. We have also been learning how to stay healthy through looking at various websites and links. We sorted fruit and vegetables, as well as healthy and unhealthy foods, using 3D food, toys and pictures. We discussed and made large unhappy and happy teeth to stick healthy and unhealthy food onto. We enjoyed painting and making watermelons.
This week we have been practising our rhyming words with various letters and sounds games. We enjoyed playing cross the river with rhyming words. We have also begun to listen to initial sound in words. We played various games and activities listening to and saying the initial sounds in words.
This week we have been making patterns with shapes and making pictures using the shapes. We also focused on counting the corners and sides of different shapes. We enjoyed working in pairs to practise.
Moving on from our exciting birthday topic last week, the learners explored the colorful Diwali festival. This Hindu festival is based around lights and so each child made their own Diya light out of clay, decorated it in bright colours and together we lit all the diya's for a special Diwali celebration. Along with this the learners enjoyed dancing to some Indian music and listening to the story of Rama and Sita, Another symbol of Diwali is beautifully decorated rangoli patterns outside peoples homes. The children used the computers to paint colourful rangolis and also explored a new texture of rice to make symmetrical rangoli patterns. Look for these in the early years space display board in the coming weeks.
As part of the transition to LB3, both reception classes have been learning new letter sounds together. This week they have covered 'b, f and ff'. The learners have also been improving their reading understanding and vocabulary.
Can we please remind parents to bring in the blue book bags each day so we can read in school with each child and change their book when needed.
With the help of Diwali Rangoli designs the learners have been practicing making lots of different patterns- letter pasterns ABABAB, AABAABAAB and ABBABBABB. They used cubes, pegs and beads to complete and make their own patterns.
