Reception Latest News- Spring 1- Week 2

This week we have continued reading our focus text ‘Here We Are’ with a focus on under the sea. In our classes we came up with a list of all the things we could see in the picture e.g. a scuba diver, a narwhal and a shipwreck. For adult directed learning, the children then went on to sentence writing using the sentence starter ‘I can see…’. They used their phonic knowledge and memory words and remembered that a sentence needs a capital letter, finger spaces and a full stop.

The children have enjoyed creating a variety of under the sea crafts using mixed media. They used strips of paper and ribbon to make floating jelly fish and empty egg cartons to make an ‘under the sea box’. Later in the week, in Art they used their sketching skills to draw turtles using clear lines and shapes.

Outdoors, the children have used their observational skills to talk about the world around them, they have particularly enjoyed exploring ice and finding ways to melt it.
