Our new topic this term is Light and Dark. The children have been reading "Can't you sleep little bear?" describing how he feels in the dark using adjectives and then writing how to help little bear feel brave in dark. They have also been reading non-fiction texts learning about nocturnal animals . They have written facts about a bat and a fox and also learning about other notcturnal animals such as owls . Well done Reception!
The children in reception are always busy practising their phonics and putting these skills new skills to good use. We have been reading and writing captions in the writing area and learning to read the days of the week. Children are also writing with different purposes in mind such as writing birthday cards for their mum or using their phonics skills to label a spider picture! These writing opportunities are not just limited to indoors but can be found all around or classroom and outside from clip boards, chalk boards - writing with chalk and water! Well done Reception - keep it up!
"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them."
The children this week have been learning about Remembrance day and what the poppy signifies - remembering all those who have died and suffered whilst keeping us all safe from harm. They made their own poppies and said prayers of remebrance in class and in a whole school service.
