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.”


The Sky

Today the children noticed that there was something different about the sky. Whilst we were outside the sun turned a very bright orange/red colour and the clouds were very dark. The children discussed what could have happened and why is was like that.

Some of the children decided that it was on fire and it was burning the sky! We then talked about the dangers of the sun and was to stay safe from it even in the colder months.
