Reception have been working hard this week to learn about capacity. we have been comparing the sixes of different containers and talking about whether we think they are full, nearly full, half full, half empty, nearly empty or empty.

We have also been writing on post-its to label these containers.

Can you see our fantastic writing?

We have also been exploring capacity using rice and different sized containers. We have enjoyed filling the containers and using these to show our teachers how well we understand the language of capacity.

This week we have also been trying our hands at cracking the codes to untangle the chain! It’s been tricky, but we have used our number knowledge to match the correct key to the lock.

Did you match any of the keys?

We also had an impromptu game of buses! We had a fantastic time and all played really well together. Some of us were drivers, some of us were ticket collectors and some of us were conductors! We went to the beach and saw lots of different things on the way! We really enjoyed ourselves!

Can you spot the driver?

 As usual we have had so many experiences this week and have been working really hard! The writing area is always full of keen artists and writers, we have been using the book corner to play families and we have been spending time with out friends building train tracks and reading books.

We also finished our baubles for the Christmas bazaar. However, there is one more step to go! We think you’re going to love the final result!

Check out some of the amazing artwork we have produced this week! (and it’s only Wednesday!) We are so proud with our work and love to make things for our friends. We have even been trying to make paper chains this week to decorate the classroom!

We have been continuing to practice our songs for the Christmas production and our ‘Star song’ really is beautiful. We have actions for the song and we are going to have special head bands for the performance! We don;t want to give too much away…for now.
