Reception News – Spring 1 – Week 4

Reception News WB 30.1.23

This week we continued learning about pollution in our world. We talked about the changes we could make in our lives to lower pollution and make our world a healthier place to be. We used clay to make our own 3D Earth models which we painted to show the land and water masses.

In maths this week we have focused on the composition of numbers 6 and 7 using the song ‘6 Little men in a flying saucer’. The children used a variety of representations to show the composition starting with ‘concrete’ objects – Toy Aliens, progressing to pictures of Aliens and eventually the more abstract concept of replacing the pictures with counters to represent the Aliens.

The children have entered the summer term showing they are ready to learn. They have enjoyed sharing all about their Easter holidays and wrote some lovely recounts. In maths they have been learning all about money and set up their very own shop in the classroom! In science the children have started an experiment looking at what type of water is best to help a seed grow. They will be observing their plants over the next few weeks to see what the results are and whether their predictions were correct.
