This afternoon the children worked on designing a football mascot for “World Cup Week”.
In Numeracy today we have been looking at number order. We played a game where we split into teams. The group were given an instruction e.g. “put 4 bears on number 12”. The team that followed the instruction the quickest got a point. After the game the children completed a creepy crawly caterpillar with missing numbers.
A lot of children in Reception Class like the ‘Frozen’ film. The children have been singing the songs in class so Mrs Murphy decided to make a ‘Frozen’ small world role play board for them to play with. They had an ice castle and lots of blue and silver sparkly ice cubes and glass beads to play with. They thoroughly enjoyed it.
Today we have finished off our collages of a nurse, a firefighter and police officer and they look fabulous stood up in our classroom.
Reception Class did their first spellings test and we are pleased to say that all the children tried really hard and did really well. The children in the group photograph got full marks! Well done from Mrs Franklin, Mrs Green and Mrs Murphy. We are proud of you all.
In Numeracy today we made a tally chart and a pictogram of our favourite pets (in relation to our vets role play and topic on “People who help us”. The dogs were the most popular and the budgies the least popular.
Alfie said about the pictogram. “The pets names need to go across the bottom”.
Ishmael could read the tally chart and say which animal was the most popular.
In the afternoon we continued with our collage policeman and nurse.
Reception children have had another lovely day. They all worked extremely hard in Phonics and we can certainly see lots of progress.
We have been making rhyming word “zigzag animals”.
The children could think of words that rhymed with cat, dog and ted and enjoyed working their way through the alphabet using the different letters to make real and pretend words.
In the afternoon they used the sandpit as a stage and had lots of musical instruments outside and played along and danced to the CD player. We have some future musicians in our class!!!
