What a busy week Reception has had! We started looking at our photos from our Bekonscot trip. All the children had such fun and spotted so many different modes of transport on our walk around. The packed lunch was a hit as always and it was nice to see the children’s good table manners displayed out of school too! We have continued with our topic of Journeys by reading the story of The Magic Bed. The story was about a little boy called Georgie who purchased a new bed from an antique shop and found that it would take him on magical journeys. We all had fun designing and modifying our own paper planes. It was interesting to see how far they flew and how the different designs worked. The children have worked hard in a team, making transport models out of the favourite ‘Magna-tiles’! Great discussions were had between the children, with co-operative play being encouraged. Following on with the Harvest theme, the children really enjoyed making bread. They were all very good at kneading the dough and were amazed to see how much it had risen due to the yeast. Everyone agreed that the homemade bread was delicious as we ate it warm straight out of the oven! Yum Yum!
Next week we will be focussing our activities around the popular story 'We're going on a bear hunt' by Michael Rosen. We will be talking about 2d shapes and tessellating patterns during our Numeracy lessons. We will also be thinking about why we need passports and when we need to use them.
At home you might like to look out for different shapes when out and about in the local environment. Some children might enjoy taking pictures of any shapes they can spot and bring them in to show their class.
