Week beginning Monday 22nd January 2018

This week, Reception have been reading the story called 'Stick-man' by Julia Donaldson. We have really enjoyed reading this story and doing lots of activities related to the story. We have used the play dough, googly eyes and buttons to create our very own families of stick-men. The children used the mark making tools to practise adding texture to make them look like real sticks.

We have been writing LOST posters in the writing area, to help Stick-Lady Love find the Stick-man. The children are getting better at finding the resources they need, such as, alphabet mats, rubbers and pencils.

In the Maths areas, the children have enjoyed playing in groups to play a large game of Gruffalo Snakes and Ladders. We are really impressed to see so many children playing a group game independently.

On the Messy Table, we have enjoyed making our very own stick-men, out of twigs, string, masking tape and anything else we thought would look good. The children also used smaller, coloured sticks and PVA to create a stick picture.

In Literacy, the children have been working with our student teacher, Miss Tierney, to write captions and small sentences for pictures from the story. The children tried really hard to remember capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.

In Maths. the children have been practising subtraction using numbers up to 20. The children have been practising solving subtractions practically using objects such as multi-link and they have been singing songs with subtractions, such as Ten Fat Sausages and Five Little Men In a Flying Saucer. In Topic, we have been looking at the Stick-man's family tree and creating out own family trees. Our Family Trees are displayed in the classroom if you would like to have a look at the end of the day.

We have also been practising our listening and speaking skills with a special circle time. During Circle Time, the children had to look and listen at the person speaking. We were talking about times when we may have felt sad or happy.

We had two fantastic sessions of Stay and Play on Wednesday. We would like to thank everyone that were able to make the sessions!
