This week we have been learning about celebrations. We have been talking about bonfire night and birthday celebrations. We made our own bonfire sound stories of fireworks with voice sounds and actions. We read the story Pumpkin Soup and learned that we can listen to a story more than once. We talked about the main characters Duck, Cat and Squirrel. We talked about them falling out and at the end of the week we enjoyed reading Duck in a Truck where the friends are helpful. In our maths we compared numbers and quantities. We added more representations to our It’s Me 1,2,3! class maths book. Maths games have been invented in our independent learning time involving dice games, number tracks and obstacle courses. We have been choosing which of two Phonic related stories we want to be read by doing a daily vote. We choose a brick and put it against our chosen story. We then compare the 2 towers and the tallest tower wins. We have been working hard with our learning behaviour to get onto the star on the classroom recognition board.
It was with great sadness that we said “Goodbye” on Friday. It was a very odd day but the children listened, responded really well and calmly to the instruction that we should tidy up early. Next week we will be continuing our learning on Google classroom and I look forward to sharing our learning. Reception staff look forward to seeing all Cygnets again soon.
