We have had such fun at St Martins Church today singing carols and thinking about what Christmas means
We were so lucky to have a man from ‘Roots Food’ to come and talk to the Reception children about healthy eating and how to keep our bodies healthy. We made some fruit smoothie which was great fun. In the smoothie was a mix of strawberries, peaches, pineapple, banana and melon. We all smelt the smoothie and most of us tried it. The children who tasted it loved it- a well deserved snack after all the exercise we did! Mrs Miller and Mrs Lewis thought it was scrummy too!
We made some super sidekicks linked to a potato charcter from the text 'Supertato'. In the book an evil pea made mischief and caused trouble in the supermarket. Supertato came to the rescue! We know that Traction Man has a super sidekick called 'Scrubbing Brush.' We talked about friends and what makes a great friend like the sidekicks we have learnt about. We shared the craft resources and had a wonderful time making our own spud sidekicks.
We all dressed up as 'Superheros' and enjoyed mixing with Year One and exploring healthy foods, making a cape, drama games and P.E.
Number 4! Get ready for the story of number 4. We are talking about fireworks this week and today we found all of the ways to match the same total of 4 fireworks
Coming Soon... SUPERHEROS! Our next topic is going to be 'Superhero's.' This is a wonderful drawing April did when we asked the children about what questions they wanted to find out about superheros
The story of 5- 5 bears, 5 plates, 5 cups and 5 chocolates. How many ways can we make 5? Can we spot 5 on the 100 square? 5 is EVERYWHERE! Every number has a story to be told
A Visit from our Grandparents- Jessica's Grandad drew a sketch of what he remembered about when he went to school
We had to find the right amount of objects to match with the numbers we had. We had to double check our counting and work out easy ways to do this. We had to take some away or add some more if our objects didn't match the number.
We have enjoyed a busy and fun filled week at school. Everything is new and exciting and we are so proud of the children and how they are settling in at school.
The children were buzzing with excitement today as they had to walk to Exminster Post Office, pay for a stamp, stick it on the envelope they had adressed to themselves and then post their letter to Doctor Foster to their homes. We bought second class stamps. They were 52p each! The last group to post their letters had a super surprise as they were allowed to look inside the post box. We are hoping that some children will have their letters on Friday morning or when they get home from school. We are so excited!
On Friday we noticed that lots of very small birds have made nests in our outside classroom. We are going to watch them carefully next week. If anyone can identify them we would appreciate knowing what type of birds we have.
Did you know...
That we have been busy finding doubles with unifix, numicon, sticks and even cusinaire rods.
We now can double really quickly and have even carried out an investigation today to see how many doubles we could fit among the different rods. Next week, we are moving on to learning about odd and even numbers and investigating further.
