We enjoyed making cakes to support our learning of mass and capacity in maths.

This week in maths we have been exploring mass and capacity. We loved building our own boats and testing how many multilink cubes they could hold before they sank.

We were so excited to go on the bench today in gymnastics! We learned how to get on and off safely and how to walk across whilst maintaining balance.

We have started our new Gymnastics unit in PE. We worked together on the mats to make different shapes and balances with our bodies.

We have had such a lovely week settling back into Reception!

We have had a very festive day enjoying the snow and decorating our Christmas tree!

We went on a shape hunt outside! We found lots of circles, triangles, rectangles and squares.

We concluded our learning of The Little Red Hen by making our own bread rolls.

In our maths sessions we have been learning all about repeating patterns. We have made repeating patterns using objects, movements and sounds. We have been learning how to copy, continue, create and correct repeating patterns. We then applied our understanding to make our own repeating pattern fruit skewers. We even peeled, chopped and skewered the fruit ourselves.

Reception are having a fantastic first half-term! This week in our literacy sessions we have become fabulous storytellers and have learned to tell the story of The Little Red Hen using story language and actions. In our maths sessions we have investigated lots of different types of measures: length, height, mass and capacity. We have also started practising our poem that we will perform at our Harvest Festival assembly. Finally, we have spent lots of important time playing, exploring our interests and developing friendships.
