This week we went on a shape hunt for our Shape, Space and Measure morning. We went around the school looking for lots of different shapes that we could find in every day things. We looked at windows, doors and tables. We were able to find squares, rectangles and circles. We had to look hard for a triangle but finally found one on the top of our PE shed.
In Reception this week have been working really hard to order our numbers to 10. We worked in teams to get the numbered plates in order. It was quite tricky at first but when we started working together we were able to complete the task.
In our Maths this week, we have been looking at ordering numbers to 10. We have done this as a whole class but also had a go in groups. We have been trying really hard to know which number goes first.
Some children said,
'Number 1 goes first'
'I can find all my numbers'
'The number five is in the middle.'
Welcome back. We hope you had a lovely half term. This term we will be looking at traditional stories.
We continue to learn the story Mrs Wishy Washy.
The children have been very creative and used their painting skills to design their own farm animals from the story.
We have been learning the story of 'Mrs Wishy Washy'.
The children used lots of language to retell the story.
What a fantastic first week we have had in Reception!
The children have all settled well.
We have already begun to learn some of our sounds, ask your child if they remember any of them.
We have played lots of listening games and have been learning each others names.
We have been practising our counting skills to 10 by counting chocolate buttons and then trying to recognise the numeral. We have extended this by discussing 1 more and 1 less.
The playdough has been a huge hit and we have been rolling a squashing the dough, this helps our fine motor skills ready for our writing.
We have also explored the outside area, the children have loved using the climbing equipment and slide.
What a busy 1st week!
