Summer 1 Week 5

This week has been very exciting as it began with an exploration of a time machine. In here we found pictures from different eras in time such as dinosaurs, ladybird books from the 1970's, robin hood, 1500's pirates. We even got a ladybird book left for our reception classes. We researched this and found it to be from the 70s, 40 years ago!

We designed our own story book covers and we took some time to visualise and design our own time machine in our heads before writing about where it had been and what it can do.

In maths we have began to learn about halving numbers. We did this by sharing objects into two hoops.

We have also continued our learning about food. Thinking about what makes a healthy, balanced diet. We all were very brave and blind tasted some different fruit and vegetables. Some we really liked and some we really didn't!

Today we had great fun dressing up and parading for all the parents. We hoped you liked all our costumes and looking through our books.

We hope you have a lovely long weekend and we will see you all on Monday.

Summer 1 Week 4

It has been another very busy and exciting week in Reception this week. We started the week by making cheese sandwiches. This involved following instructions very carefully. They were super yummy and we all ate them all up!

After making the sandwiches we had a go at writing our own instructions. For this we had to think carefully about the steps we needed to take to make the sandwiches and then write sentences explaining these.

Today we had a very exciting trip over to the Al Meera supermarket. During our visit we were able to look at all the different foods and talk to the staff about where they come from. We found this very interesting. After our look around the shop we went an selected our own fruit to buy. This was so exciting, we felt like grown ups! We had to have our fruit weighed and then pay for it at the checkout using our money.

Today we were also lucky enough to visit the bake sale in school. Today has been a delicious day!

We hope you have a fantastic weekend and enjoy eating your purchases!
