Art week in reception.
We have had a wonderful week in reception learning about the work of the artist Kandinsky.
First we found out all about him , then we practised using pencils to make concentric circles. Next we learnt about the colour wheel, mixing colours and finally we painted our own Kandinsky style paintings.
In maths we have been learning about positional language . We have used these words when playing outside on the a climbing equipment. Are you under, over, besides, next to , in front or behind ?
Reading and phonics.
We are very proud of the children’s progress in phonics and their independence in using the sounds they’ve learnt. Well done to everyone who has gained a sticker or certificate for reading at home .
This week we have continued our theme of celebrations and have been learning about Diwali.
First we listened to the story of Rama and Sita , then we made rangoli patterns and drew mehndi patterns on our hands.
We have enjoyed yoga in pe and are getting very good at balancing and stretching.
In maths we have been working hard to learn about subtraction , we have taken part in lots of practical activities , taking away objects and then writing simple number sentences.
We are continuing to learn lots of new sounds in phonics and working hard to write and read them. We are especially proud of the children who have stickers and certificates for sharing their reading book at home. Please check to see if you have signed your child’s book recently so they can be rewarded . Reading is the key to everything we do and sharing a book is especially important! Please note children need book bags every day.
Welcome back !
Hope you all had a lovely half term. The children have settled straight back into their learning. This week we have enjoyed celebrating Bonfire night. We have learnt the story of Guy Fawkes and have had the opportunity to dance to Handel’s firework music,used collage to make bonfires and made firework bottles in the water. In Maths we have started to look at addition and have been using objects to help us to add amounts together.
Halloween and Room on the Broom fun.
What a fun week we have had developing our learning through the story of Room on the Broom! We have acted out the story, sequenced events, wrote a simple sentence and made lots of pumpkins, wands and witches. In maths we have learnt all about 3D shapes and the names cone, cylinder, cube and sphere . Can you spot any when out for a walk? Thank you to all the parents and grandparents who came for our lovely Room on the Broom activity afternoon, it was wonderful to see you working with the children.There were some wonderful wands and dragons! After our Green Party, where we all came to school in pyjamas, we ended the week celebrating the end of a great half term and Halloween . Didn’t we look amazing!
