This term has been a brilliant one! We have been learning lots about ‘Going on a journey.’ Reception children have been innovating The Gruffalo and The Gingerbread Man stories.
The children started this half term, by learning songs about ‘The Gruffalo.’ The children have produced some wonderful work related to this and they have even extended their learning by learning new vocabulary each week. When reading ‘The Gruffalo’ the children had the opportunity to create their very own Gruffalo and Gingerbread men.
They have enjoyed taking part in maths lessons outdoors and having the speaker out to help us learn number songs. In Maths the children have been learning about lots of different things. These were doubling, sharing and grouping, odd and even and spatial reasoning.
Phonics, phonics, phonics!! We have been consolidating our Phase 2 and 3 sounds and are working hard on blending these together. The children have taken part in some great activities to support this including; using our on-line games, going on word hunts, writing with different materials including chalk and water and playing physical games. ‘Big Cat books are a great addition and the children have really enjoyed reading these during phonics lessons and guided reading.
The children finished the term by having a wonderful day in the woods roasting marshmallows and having a super fun water fight!
