Last week Reception Class continued to explore different types of transport, with a focus on aeroplanes. The children were set a homework challenge to make a paper aeroplane ready for a competition. They tested all their planes in the hall, to find out whose went the furthest. The class also enjoyed testing different sized paper aeroplanes to find out if the size effected the distance they travelled.
In Maths Reception have been learning about addition and subtraction, using the ‘first, then, now’ model to help them make number stories.
In D&T the children continued to learn about hinges and catches and have made their own books! They used a hole punch and some ribbon, or string, to create a hinge so their books opened and closed, as well as a catch to ensure it stayed together.
In RE the children made up their own Pentecost dance, to Vivaldi’s Storm music, using streamers for the wind and flames. They danced individually and then with a partner, to help them remember the different parts of the story of Pentecost.
To round up the week, the children made their own hand-held drums, in preparation for the Pirate Music Festival they will be attending after half term. They worked very carefully to cover a range of boxes and decorated them with a sea theme. Well done Everyone.
