We have been consolidating all of our maths learning. Counting forwards and backwards. Ordering and recognising numbers. Lots of counting of objects and matching numerals as part of the Big Count for the Census. We have been exploring ways of making numbers up to 10.
We became Evil Pea Scientists. We wanted to get Supertato with the masher but he was to hard. What could we do to mash him up? We had lots of great ideas about ways he could be changed. We boiled Supertato in water and that made him soft so we could then mash him.
We chopped up radishes and carrots and put the end in some water. We have been observing what has happened and a new plant is starting to grow.
We stood celery into some blue water, we discussed that the water is a liquid. Over the day the blue water had travelled up the celery and turned the leaves and tops blue!
Well done Reception for yet another week of super home learning all about The Enormous Turnip. We have loved seeing your super drawings and labels for the characters from the story. We have been very impressed with your drawings of root vegetables as well as finding out lots of different words for enormous. You have been doing fantastic number ordering and representations of numbers 9 and 10. We have seen some great investigating as to what we can pull and push.
Reception have had another amazing week of enjoying their learning about The Three Billy Goats Gruff and we our blown away with your fantastic work yet again this week. You have created some super WANTED posters for the troll, lots of fabulous small world mats for the Three Billy Goats Gruff and the troll and great story maps to help with retelling the story.
A big WELL DONE and THANK YOU to you all for your hard work.
Have a lovely break and we look forward to our new learning after half term.
Our Reception children have been very busy doing lots of fantastic home learning.
They have been creating some lovely art work in ice, cooking, baking, sharing stories and creating story maps. We have had a construction challenge for the children to create their own bridges for the Troll in the story of 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff'. The children have been working really hard with their Phonics and Maths completing lots of practical activities, including some fantastic writing. We have also been exploring science creating sounds and music using glasses of water and taking part in a weather watch; this has been great with all the ice and snow we have been having. Everyone has been working extremely hard at home!
