12th November 21
It has been another busy and fun packed week here in Reception.
We began the week with some PE with Mrs Halliday. In PE we are learning to follow instructions and we became soldiers. We had to march, about turn, stand at ease and stand to attention!
We have been thinking about different words and their meanings in Maths. We are all very good at counting but sometimes have to listen very carefully to new words in our Maths lessons and try to work out what they actually mean. This week we have been thinking about the word ‘more’ and what it means. We have played games with dice, dominoes, number cards, counters, teddies and so much else. Sometimes we have been looking at piles or groups of objects and trying to estimate which group contains more. We could then work it out by actually counting how many objects there was in each group and recording the number. The group with the highest number was the group with more.
We also looked at what the concept of adding just one more meant.
On Thursday we presented Mrs Goodwin with a book that we had made for her to say thank you for looking after us so well both in the dining room and playground each day. We all wrote a message and drew pictures for her to keep forever. She loved it so much that it made her cry some happy tears. We wish Mrs Goodwin all the luck in the world in her position at another school.
During Chil we played on the bikes and scooters, we threw balls through hoops and we even walked Maisie!
We even had time to do a couple of Go Noodle activities in the classroom. Our favourite one was all about a magical unicorn!
Have a lovely weekend everyone!
