This week we focused on learning about spring! We extended our knowledge looking at various websites and links on the weather changes during spring time. We made collages of butterflies and a spring tree. We also made rain clouds and beautiful rainbows.
In maths we have been learning about more and less. We enjoyed playing mucky monsters on the Interactive whiteboard.
In phonics we have been playing mix-pair-share using rhyming words. We have also been practising Phase 1 aspect 4- rhythm and rhyme and aspect 5- alliteration through letters and sounds games and activities. We enjoy playing games listening to the initial sounds of our names and objects.
The Year of the Pig- this week the reception learners focused on Chinese New Year celebration. They enjoyed watching the dragon dances and writing both numbers and letters in Chinese. We used lots of red and gold in our art projects. The children made dragons, lanterns and money envelopes. On Friday the learners took part in their own 'great race' and used ordinal numbers to record each others place in the race.
The students have also been enjoying the birthday role play corner and making lots of yummy cupcakes for their friends birthdays.
In Phonics this week: The learners have covered all the alphabet letter sounds and they have been practising and putting these sounds together to make words. They have even started to blend and read 4 letter words. Our tricky words for this week are Mum and Dad: Can you find these words in books you read together?
Please note that reading books and blue bags will not go home over the holidays. Your child will still read next week however after Thursday the bags will stay in school.
With the help of the Great Race zodiac story the learners have been practising their ordinal number skills. They have also been learning the tricky skill of skip counting in 5s.
Next week learning reviews with families on Tuesday 11th and Thursday 13th December. Please check your allocated time and looking forward to see you all to discuss your child's progress and learning.
