Reception/Early Years

Weekly overview

In Literacy this week we have been exploring the story ‘The Three Little Pigs’, we have been doing Talk for Writing – using actions to retell the story. We have focused on different vocabulary from the story – Character, Setting and Impression. The Preschool children have tried so hard to draw the characters from the story and the Reception children have been working hard to hear, say and write the initial sounds for pictures from the story.
In Maths we have been focusing on number rhymes -5 little ducks, 12345 once I caught a fish alive and 5 little men in a flying saucer. We have been looking at careful counting, putting objects in a line if possible and using our counting fingers to make sure we count each object once. The Reception children have been trying hard with their number formation and learning number formation rhymes. 
In Science we have been learning about our main body parts. We drew round each other and helped label the body parts. The Reception children then had a go labelling the body parts in their books. 
In Art we have been focusing on drawing our face, we talked about the shapes we need to draw when drawing our face. We then discussed our features and how some of them are the same and different to our friends. 
What a great week! We have had lots of fun.
