Reception class, what a fantastic way to finish off a rather busy week, than with our own Minibeast Ball.
You all looked amazing in your outfits!
Well done families for putting them together.
We began our morning by listening to the story 'The Bugliest Bug' by Carol Diggory Shields and then had a little boogie to the song 'The ugly bug ball' by Carl Ives.
We then consolidated some of our symmetry work by designing and painting a butterfly and made some yummy minibeast biscuits for our afternoon feast.
A huge thank you to Alex, Rachael and Lucy who looked after you all so well at the beginning of the week, whilst I was poorly in hospital.
In our Mathematical Development, we continued our work on numerical patterns to explore odd and even numbers in familiar contexts, using our understanding of equal groups to identify odd and even numbers.
In our Literacy Development, we continued exploring early dialogue with the story 'What the ladybird heard' in preperation for our writing tasks.
In our Expressive Arts and Design Development, we looked at how an Emu pecks and used this to find the rhythm of a song called The Bird Tree. We started to read music using dots to follow the words 'pretty polly' . We were very pleased that we learnt a whole song and actions in such a short time. We had fun warming up to the song Bungalow.
In our Physical development,our focus was throwing at a target. After our warm up, we decided we need to use our whole body to throw a bean bag at a hoop target. We pointed in the direction we wanted our bean bag to go and used an under arm throw. Some of us found it easier to swap hands. We then had a go at moving further away and used the same skills to try throwing over arm.
