Size

Today we have been looking at size. First we looked at the size of some of the children in class and discussed who was the tallest and who was the shortest the children worked together as a class to tell each other where they would need to move to to be in order. Some of the children then went off to the craft table and ordered pictures from the smallest to the biggest.

World Nursey Rhyme Week – Day 1 

As part of World Nursery Rhyme Week the children in Reception will be learning a nursery rhyme each day and taking part in activities linking to that rhyme. This helps develop the children’s communication and language, literacy skills,  maths and helps them to develop socially and emotionally.
The rhyme we focused on today was Bobby Shafto. The children enjoyed learning the song and coming up with actions to help us remember it .

The children then made telescopes to help them look out onto the sea and some children used boxes to make a boat!

Maps

Today some of the children in reception designed a map to help Little Red Riding Hood find her Grandmas house. We worked together to think of things she might come across on her journey and then drew them on our map. We then talked about how she would get there.

#RS said “She needs to go over the bridge.”

#RE said “She can’t swim in the water so she will have to go around it.”


Reading Books

Reception received a special delivery in class today.  All of the children each received a reading pack which consisted of a book and a guide for parents/carers to help with reading at home. The children were all very excited to take their new books home and do some reading and talking about the pictures with their adults.
