Reception Latest News – Autumn 2 Week 4

We began this week talking to our learning partners about our homes and what makes them special to us. The children decided that their families and toys were the things they valued most. We continued to focus on bears this week as each class discovered their favourite bear using a class vote, we then recorded the information on a graph.

Next we drew our favourite bear,labelled it and wrote an interesting fact. In the creative area this week the children practised the skill of using sticky tape correctly to join two pieces of paper to create a book, they then designed a front cover with a drawing and phonic labelling.

In maths we have been exploring patterns of four and early composition of number using the part part whole model.

We ended the week exploring ice with arctic animals in our outdoor small world area.

This week the children have all enjoyed their first woodwork sessions. First they explored the safety aspects of woodwork including the importance of safety goggles and safe use of tools. They used a variety of different size and thickness of balsa wood, different sized nails and a variety of mixed media such as bottle tops, corks and beads for their creations. They also learned how to use a Japanese saw safely with an adult. The children had lots of fun exploring and we were very impressed with their creations.

This week in maths, we learnt about patterns. We had to identify patterns but also create patterns ourselves. We noticed that a pattern could be made in lots of different ways. For example, you could make a one by alternating two types of shape or by changing the colour of just one shape.
