Last week Henrietta the Hedgehog delivered ‘Dear Zoo’, by Rod Campbell, and Bertie the Bee left the rhyme ‘Incy Wincy Spider’ for the class to enjoy. They were given a challenge to create a web for the homeless spiders, using only the string, scissors and black card.
In the construction area the children created homes for the different soft toy animals ,and at Forest School they made spiders, using natural materials.
In Maths the children were exploring and comparing size, mass and capacity. They had to find things around the classroom which would fit into a matchbox and enjoyed making tall and short towers using counters and large bricks. They also used rice to explore filling and emptying a range of different sized pots, and the balance scales to find out about heavy and light objects.
The class have also been continuing to create patterns to show what they learned last week.
On Tuesday Reception took part in their first Retreat Day with Dan and Emily. They had great fun learning new songs and thought more about the land animals that God created for us.
In their ‘Understanding of the World’ lesson, the children looked at lots of family photographs, to compare and contrast their different families and in art they created their own family portraits.
