Well done to Reception for all singing beautifully and saying their words loudly during our Christmas Play ‘Whoops-A-Daisy-Angel’. We have been doing number work and have been sharing stories with our friends. We have been busy being creative just like the Elves in our story ‘The Elves and the Shoemaker’.
We have been watching our class beanstalks grow; we have been measuring and recording the height of the beanstalk. In Maths we have been matching the quantity to the number and we have been writing number sentences. Our sounds this week have been: oi, ue, er, ar. We have been practising our Christmas Play; we are excited and ready to show the School and our families next week.
We have been reading ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. We sequenced the story by making our own story maps. We have been recognising, ordering and writing our numbers. The sounds this week: sh, th, qu, ou. We have been practising our Christmas Play and we can’t wait to show our families what we have been doing!
We have been reading ‘Goldilocks and The Three Bears’. We have been sequencing the story and measuring the bears. We used blocks, cubes and rulers to measure, order and record the height of the bears. We made porridge and we had to decide what we wanted to put on top. We tasted the porridge and described the texture. The sounds this week have been: z, w, ng and v.
We have been reading the story ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. We retold the story and labelled our own character using the word bank. In Maths we matched the quantity to the number and made number lines. We have been helping to create our role-play area by making signs, price tags and shopping bags. Our sounds this week: ie, ee, or.
This week we visited the library upstairs for a special treat! Carrie from Little Robins told us the story of ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’ using puppets. We enjoyed making our own masks to help us tell the story.
We have been ordering objects based on size: small, medium and big. Our sounds this week: u, l, f and b. We have been blending sounds to support reading and writing.
In Literacy we read the story of ‘Cinderella’. We went into the hot seat; we pretended to be characters from the story and our friends asked us questions. In Maths we matched pairs and looked at doubling numbers to ten. We made shiny shoes and talked about alliteration. The sounds we learnt this week: m, d, g and o.
In Literacy we read the story of ‘The Princess and The Frog’. We told our friends what animal we would like to be if the wicked witch changed us into an animal and we wrote a sentence in our Literacy books. In Maths we have been looking at 2D and 3D shapes. The sounds we learnt this week: c/k, e, h, r. We used the characters from our story to discuss how we should treat our friends.
