This week in Reception, we have been learning about what makes a family. The children have enjoyed looking through each other’s family photos. We have been discussing what makes a family, who is in our family, how our families are the same and how they are different, what makes our family special and what we like to do at the weekend with our families! We have also learned a new Days of the Week song to help us to remember which days we come to school.
The children have also been doing lots of exploring in Maths. They have been learning to count within five and had a challenge of collecting various natural objects from our outdoor areas and use them to count with. We are becoming super at matching numeral to quantity!
The Dinosaurs have been so amazing this week! They have been talking about feelings that the characters feel in the Bog Baby story. In Maths we have looked at putting things in first, second and third places. Ask your child what races we did to help us understand! The children have really enjoyed painting their Bog Babies they made with clay! We have also compared what animals and humans can do differently.
What an amazing week we have in Year 2. The children have been using greater and less than signs when comparing numbers and have been practising counting in 2s 5s and 10s. In English the children have been reliving the day that Wild gets taken from her home. The children have been able to show some super acting skills and generate some super vocab! In Science the children have been exploring the differences between woodland habitats in the UK and woodland habitats in other countries. We love learning about animals and using Ipads and laptops to research them.
Have a super weekend.
Very best wishes.
