Reception Weekly News
Stick man oh Stick man beware of the ........
This week, as we have continued with our theme of Woodland Life, we have enjoyed listening to our story 'Stick man' again as well as retelling it to each other, so much so we are now confident at the phrasing and rhyming pattern in the text. To help us with our writing job this week we created our very own Stick men from twigs and sticks brought from home. Using string and playdough we attached the arms and made faces. Once ready we set off to our woodland area and thought of all the objects or obstacles that he would need to 'beware of!'
It was a wonderful sight, seeing twenty little Stick men with their little human operators chanting "Stickman oh Stickman beware of the mud!" "Stick man oh Stick man beware of the flood!" (puddle) And as you can see we are getting very good at finding everyday things that rhyme.
In mathematics we have been learning about 1 more within 5. We used role play and first, then and now story structures to explore this concept. Using practical objects like tricycles and drawing our own five frames we explored adding I more and retelling it to our friend.
"First I had one bike and then I added another bike, now I have 2 bikes and so on up to 5. We are getting very good at speaking in mathematical sentences to explain our understanding. We then moved onto representing own knowledge pictorially by drawing the objects into our five frames and again explaining it in mathematical sentences.
As well as all our learning experiences across the week we have also taken time to reflect on some of our learning about remembrance from last week and joined the rest of school on Monday to observe a two minute silence at 11 o'clock.
Monday is also the day when we think about our mental well being and after our mindful exercise after lunch we thought about ways we could encourage others to feel better with ideas for cheering people up when they are having a difficult day. Listening to ways in which you help yourselves and manage you emotional well-being was very encouraging for others to hear and gave us lots of ideas for helping others. Thank you for your kind thoughts reception.
As part of anti-bullying week we read a story about celebrating our differences called 'It's okay to be different' and have made our very own book with quotes and illustrations about ourselves and what makes us wonderfully unique. We have kindly loaned it to Miss McCurrie for her display in the main corridor, We think everyone will enjoy reading it and sharing our message that we are all wonderfully made and proud of our differences as well as celebrating each others uniqueness.
PC Nick also joined us this week to talk about road safety, how we should cross the road and the different types of crossings we can use as well as travelling safely in our cars with our families. He advised us in these winter months to make sure we can be seen as we are walking by roads by wearing something that is fluorescent if possible. PC Nick was very interested to hear about the different ways some of us keep ourselves safe when we are walking and crossing roads, holding a grown ups hand was a very popular and sensible idea shared.
And so finally to our last day of the week, and possibly our busiest!
Thank you for all dressing up and donating towards Children in Need, as a class we contributed £47 towards our overall total today, so thank you for your kind generosity. We joined everyone in the hall for Jo Wickes 'Big Morning Move' which was absolutely brilliant. Thankfully we had some yummy cakes to revive us and top up our energy afterwards.
We were also fortunate to have a 'Mini Kickers' football taster session this afternoon, with some very impressive dribbling skills going on! Who knew we had so many budding female and male footballers amongst us!
Enjoy your well earned rest reception
See you Monday
