Today we practised the ou sound in our phonics session. We wrote the sound using cursive writing that we are beginning to learn in Year 1. Look at our wonderful learning!
Learners in Year 1 have been exploring the wonderful new resources that have been delivered over the holidays.Yesterday we unpacked the suitcases of items we had brought with us from Reception class. Since then we have been writing, counting, taking part in performances, going on picnics, building towers, measuring, playing musical instruments and much more as well. It is wonderful to see the learning getting off to a flying start!
On Friday, Reception visited Iver Environment Centre and took part in pond dipping, a mini beast hunt and made a bug hotel. Children were able to identify many different insects and creatures and say which habitat they belonged to. The bug hotels are not to be used yet. I wonder if any one can remember when we can put the bug hotels outside and why that is?
I was wondering what it would be like if every material was rigid. Would this be a good thing? Why? Or maybe it would not be a good thing? Why not?
Have a talk to your friends and family about this and then post some comments so we can all share the ideas together.
Here is the question again
What if every material was rigid?
I look forward to seeing your comments.
Following on from our learning on The Three Little Pigs and reading the story Iggy Peck Architect, the children in Reception constructed the wonderful house you can see in the photos. It even has a toilet and pipes to get rid of the waste! However, construction is not yet complete so we will continue the building tomorrow. Look again tomorrow to see how we have adapted our building.
Today we explored in the glorious sunshine. Group 1 became detectives and tried to find evidence of different animals that may have visited the grounds. We found lots of evidence of birds and found holes that could have been made by foxes or rabbits. We explored by the pond and saw a beautiful dragonfly gliding over the water.
Group 2, collected items to make a potion with. They then stirred their potions with a special stirring stick. Did your spells work Group 2
During tidy up time today, Reception children found a large spider. As the spider was on a block, we carefully picked the block up and looked at the spider carefully. Reception, can you remember how many legs a spider has? Why was the spider hiding?
In Reception we are learning the story of The Gingerbread Man. We have created our own stories using each other as the characters. We are looking forward to sharing our stories with Year 1 at the end of the week.
Today we took advantage of the glorious weather and have spent plenty of time learning outside. Children have learnt together to solve problems, find treasure and help each other achieve their aims.
When we came inside, we listened carefully to a story and identified lots of words with the ar sound in, which is our sound of the day.
