Reception weekly news
But who is this creature with terrible claws
And terrible teeth in his terrible jaws?
He has knobbly knees and turned out toes,
And a poisonous wart at the end of his nose.
His eyes are orange and his tongue is black,
He has purple prickles all over his back!
This week in reception we have been reading 'The Gruffalo' to help us develop character descriptions. Firstly, we used images from the text to help us recall details about the character and made labels to annotate the image. After composing our descriptions out loud we then attempted to construct sentences, carefully segmenting the sounds in the words and blending together to write in sequence.
In phonics we have explored the 'ng' digraph, learning a mnemonic to help us remember how to say it correctly. When we word banks, we recognised that the 'ng' sound is an ending sound and some of the words rhymed: king, ring, sing! We are fantastic at recognising rhyming strings reception.
In maths this week we have continued to work on number bonds to 10, moving on from the concrete form using objects to using pictorial and abstract forms of numerals, matching the correct number partners in written form. This concept has reminded us that sometimes we find learning a bit tricky, but it is good to challenge ourselves and not give up, we get there in the end!
Our nativity preparations are well underway, and we have begun to practice our performance on the 'big stage' in the hall. As the songs are becoming more familiar, we are becoming confident singers and performers. We can't wait to show it to you. This has helped us to consider 'Why do Christians perform nativity plays at Christmas?' for our unit of RE work this term. As one of you said " They do it to remember that God gave us the gift of Jesus and that's why we have Christmas. " Wise words to remember in the coming busy weeks.
We have continued to add natural objects to our art working wall as we try to create our own natural art like the artist Andy Goldsworthy. I think a few more colourful leaves and we are nearly done.
In forest school this week we have used the natural resources in the woodland area to create a forest loom and weaved objects into it using string. Using log slices we created our own stories and shared them in groups. My favourite was the willow wands which we bent into the shape of a star and cast spells with. These look amazing reception!
Have a great weekend everyone
