What are 2D shapes? Ask us and we will tell you they are flat shapes. Today our target focus was to learn about circles and find them around school. Look what we found.
As you will be aware our school Nativity is on Tuesday 15th December at 2pm and Wednesday 16th December at 5.30pm at the church.
All children in Reception have a part in the Nativity. The children’s lines have put in their bags please make sure your practicing them at home with your child. They need to be able to say their lines clearly and loudly. A CD was put in the school bags last week with all the songs on. Please listen to the music and get your child to teach you the actions to the songs.
All costumes will be provided by school but children will need to wear clothes under their costumes as they will be performing in church and it can be quite cold. We suggest that boys wear black trousers and a vest with school shoes and girls wear leggings, a vest and school shoes.
If you have any questions please let me know.
How much can our brains grow in a week? Very big is the answer. Just look at what we’ve been learning.
In the afternoons we’ve been working on our gymnastic routines especially our pencil rolls. Mrs Armitt is going to be amazed when we show her our routines next week.
Can we count how tall they are now we’ve practised learning all our numbers to 20? Oh yes we can. 👍😀
As part of our messy and creative play this week we explored what exciting things we could do with spaghetti.
During our R.E sessions we retold the story of the Nativity. Then thought about our favourite parts in the story and how the people would have been feeling. Look at our drawings and understanding of people’s emotions.
What will next week bring. Watch this space!
Remember our blog is a great way of sharing our learning with other family members, why not let Grandparents and Aunty and Uncles see our learning too. Tell them about the blog and get them signed up.
Next week we will be attempting to make our own Penguins! But to do this we will need an empty water bottle. Please can you help us save a water bottle for next week and write our name on it and bring it in.
WE NEED YOUR RECYCABLES
We are in need of recyclables such as egg boxes, tissues boxes, toilet/kitchen rolls, toothpaste boxes, empty food cases/boxes, plastic lids, detergent bottles and anything else that would be exciting to make models with.
If you can save these recycables and bring them in on December 16th we will use them to make our very own Christmas masterpiece. So watch this space!
Today we wrote our first sentences after learning our karate punctuation. We learnt sentences start with capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. Look how well we did.
Some of us enjoyed a relaxing read in the reading corner.
Then we had chance to share our crazy socks with each other.
Outside we starting to make some Pirate traps using a collection of many different objects.
We took our shark hats down from the display and pretended to be sharks again before we took them home. Some of us might have tried to form a shark attack on Miss Irwin but unfortunately she spotted us first! We don’t know how she realised!
Firstly Miss Irwin would like to say thank you to all the parents who came to parents consultations. It was great to meet you all and tell you how wonderful your little cherubs are.
Here’s what we’ve been up to this week.
On Tuesday we learnt our new sound ‘v’.
Here’s a clue…
Today we created our own number hunt with the number 16. We wrote the number then split into to teams to hide them for the others to find. It was great fun!
This afternoon we had French with Mrs Oakes and practised our colours. We listened to Twinkle, twinkle little star. Then we helped Mrs Oakes decorate her picture with her stars. Then we made our own stars.
After French we had time with the iPads to see if we can remember how to use the iPads. Our targets were to turn on the iPad, enter the code, find the APP and play bee it APP. If you have an iPad at home you could get it for free.
As you can tell from our hairy friend we have been using busy things APP. One of us created him on our busy things APP. Miss Irwin discovered him in the saved photos. Pretty cool isn’t he. 😀
We are allowed to come dressed up as cartoon characters for a donation of £1. There will also be a colouring competition to enter for a donation of 50p with prizes to be won.
