Foundation Stage 1 & 2
We have had a fantastic start to our year in Reception. We have enjoyed exploring and being creative whilst playing in the role play and outside area. We have loved being scientists whilst investigating bubbles and marking making in the rain. Our new phonics scheme Read, Write Inc is really helping us learning to read and write. We love playing schools with our friends, pretending we are the teacher and practising our new skills.
In maths we have been doing lots of work on number. We are gaining confidence working with numbers to 20 and are beginning to solve simple problems.
We really enjoyed learning about Diwali and particularly enjoyed the Indian feast. We tried korma, masala, naan bread, popadoms and pilau rice. It was delicious. We leared about the celebration and compared it to how we celebrate special events.
We also took part in Wear it Wild in association with the WWF. We dressed as animals, learned about endangered animals and even went on a hunt for the lonely elephant. It was great day.
