Welcome back to everyone and hope you enjoyed the half term holiday!
We have been working hard in Reception, continuing with our topic about the ‘Farm.’
This week will be very exciting because we have three important events! We have our World Book Day ‘Bedtime Challenge’ and the children are so excited about a special day reading lots of stories, discussing our favourite ones, and doing lots of activities related to these. We can’t wait to see how many books we can read for the competition!
We have chosen one to begin with called ‘Mr. Wolfe’s Pancakes!’ Of course this week, it will be Pancake day! Reception children will have the opportunity to make their very own Pancakes in the Discovery Room.
In the Maths Room we will be measuring all the ingredients needed and in the Literacy Room we shall be writing a list of the ingredients for pancakes and order a list of instructions in how to make them. We will let you know how well we do when we come to ‘toss’ them!
Outside in the water tray we will ‘fish out a picture’ of a character from the story and describe it to a friend without them seeing it. They have to guess who it is from the descriptions we give! We shall be making our very own story map and cut out the characters from the story and tell the story by putting them into a sequence of events along the way! We will ‘have a go’ at writing the names for the characters and all the other drawings we do to create the story. Some of us will attempt to write simple sentences about the events.
We have an exciting Maths day planned too! We shall be exploring maths resources and counting the holes in the Numicon plates. We will place them into buckets with the labels ‘most’/fewest, more and less! We are so excited about making number sentences using the ‘Number Ladder’ Game!
