Spring 2 Update
This term our topic has been 'Traditional Tales' and we have been busy sharing many stories with our children. We shared the story 'The Three Little Pigs' and then discussed the different materials that would be appropriate when building a house. When sharing reasons to why they would choose a material for their house, the children explored many words such as 'strong, weak and transparent'. We invited our parents' during Science week to help with building a durable house. We had lots of fun!
We have been extremely busy preparing for International week, the children in Reception have been exploring India and China. We have developed our communication and language and learnt how to say hello and goodbye in Hindi and Mandarin. In maths, we also had the chance to learn how to count numbers in both languages. We had lots of fun sharing all the information we had learnt during our mini world afternoon.
Reception have been practising their carnival dance and have been listening and moving in time with the music. We had lots of fun and worked as a team. We developed our self-belief and confidence to dance in front of a large audience at Carnival to a mixture of traditional music from China and India.
