This week On Friday, Reception visited Bekonscot Model Village. The week started with wind and relentless rain which made the teachers rather nervous about the upcoming trip. However, the sun had decided to shine and the skies were clear! All the children clambered aboard the coach excited and raring to go! At the model village there was so much to see. From circus acts, to fairgrounds, harbours and coal mines, we were really transported back to a different era. Children asked some really thoughtful questions and enjoyed themselves. Each group leader encouraged the children to keep a tally chart, recording the different modes of transport they could see as we travelled round. This proved to be a real success with the children taking ownership which was great! The children behaved very well and we are already looking forward to our next excursion.
At home you might like to focus on 3D shapes and look in the cupboards for containers. Can you help your child sort them into cubes, cuboids and spheres? Can any of you find any triangular prisms at home? Now there’s a challenge!
Next week we will focus on counting and missing numbers in maths. We will be writing our own postcards ready to send on our next trip to Great Missenden Post Office on Friday 7 November. We will be listening to the story of Rama and Sita as we celebrate the Hindu festival of Diwali.
