Spring Term - Our journey so far...

We are always very busy in reception. We do lots of our learning through play. We can choose to play outside or inside. Below are some photos of the different areas we can play in.

Maths

We have been busy learning about capacity. We talked about how things can be full, empty or half full. We found the capacity of different objects around the classroom.

We have learnt all about measuring. We have measured dinosaur bones using cubes and ordered them according to size. We explored what different objects we could use to measure and decided to use things such as, sticks, post it notes, bricks and rulers. We made estimates of how many each object we would need before we measured them.

 

 

Phonics

We have a phonics lesson every morning. We have been learning lots of new phonemes. We use our phonics to write graphemes. We segment the words using our phonics fingers and write down each phoneme we can hear.

Dinosaurs

This half term we have been learning all about dinosaurs. We have dressed up as them, read about them, drawn them and even written to them.

We did an assembly all about our dinosaur learning and retold the story of the book we have been reading in class, ‘Harry and his bucketful of dinosaurs.’

Our School Trip to The Rainbow Factory
To start off our topic of 'Fairy Tales' we went to the Rainbow Factory. We were really excited about our first trip. When we got there we watched 'Jack and the Beanstalk' show and took part in three exciting workshops.
 
 
1) Speaking and Listening Activity
2) Writing Activity
3) Fairy Tale Adventure
 
We had lots of fun on our trip!
 
Fun in the snow on the slopes!
India Week
For World Book Day we learnt all about India. We read the book 'My Mother's Sari,' made roti, looked at traditional Indian dress and took part in a dance and drumming workshop.
Wear a hat day
We came to school wearing our hats and Easter bonnets for charity.
Our wonderful writing
We have been very busy doing lots of independent writing. Here is some of our India writing and our retelling of 'Jack and the Beanstalk.'
