We’ve been busy again this week in RR class. Our maths focus has been on time. We have been measuring time and discussing the language that we use when talk about time.

We have been making really big clocks! We have worked together to find where the numbers go and we have even pretended to be the big hand and the little hand. Do you know what time it is?

We have been using timers to race and see how many beads we can thread in a  set time! how many beads do you think you could thread in one minute? It’s trickier than you think!

We have been playing in our very own Travel agents! We been booking holidays, using the globe to fond out where we would like to go, and looking through our travel magazines to explore what different places have to offer. Some of the places even have football pitches! When can we go?

Where would you like to go on holiday?
Are you going on any holidays this year?

We had a lot of fun trying to make life sized cut outs too! We were really inspired by some of Miss Roberts resources and so tried to make our own. Here you can see us really working together to try and roll the paper out and draw around each other. We even tried to cut them out!

We were even lucky enough to see a show this week all about being late! Now we know just how important it is to be on time every day! We really enjoyed it! There was even a quiz!

Can you remember why it is important to be on time?

This week we’ve also been focussing on Africa. We have been talking about African animals and have read the book ‘Handa’s Surprise’. We have even been learning an African Nursery Rhyme called ‘Kye Kye Kule’. Can you remember the actions?

Wow we’ve been so busy! I wonder what next week will bring?

Happy New Year!

Welcome back reception! It seems like everybody has had a fantastic Christmas Holiday! We’ve been hearing a lot about the wonderful toys and gifts that Father Christmas brought you all! You’re all so lucky!

We’ve been having a really busy couple of weeks so far!

We have been investigating musical instruments and the different sounds that they make.

We have really enjoyed dressing up as insects this week! We have even made a some dark and scary woods to walk through. We have really enjoyed the sound and feeling of the sugar paper as we have scrunched it and walked through it! It really feels like we are in the forest!

Our Theme has been ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ by Michael Rosen. We’re Going on a Bear Hunt 25th Anniversary Logo. We’re Going on a Bear Hunt Celebrating 25 Years Header Image. Illustration of man walking with three children.
