This term our learning is based around many different fairy tales. From Goldilocks and the three bears to Rapunzel, Reception have loved hearing and joining in with these traditional stories. This term as their confidence has grown I have seen may of the children more keen than ever to stand up in front of the class and act out these stories either with masks or puppets.
In literacy we have been practising becoming more independent writers, using our phonic knowledge to label fairy tale pictures and even make our own books.
In maths we have been sorting objects based on their size and length, we have learned about the terms to describe capacity as well as exploring the different ways to make ten.
This term we have also been getting a little green fingered, growing cress for the three billy goats gruff, and planting beans like Jack and the beanstalk!
As always in Reception we love to make and create many arts and crafts. Already this term we have made pig masks, bear puppets, paper plate goat faces, princess and the pea collages, model castles to name just a few!
