People who help us
Tuesday 2nd February | No comments yet
The children are really enjoying our topic on ‘People who help us’. Last week we had two visitors to talk to the children. The children asked the midwife and occupational therapist lots of interesting questions. Have a look at our photos and ask the children what they can remember. We are continuing this week by talking about looking after our teeth and will be reading a story called “Smile, crocodile, smile”. Yesterday the children started an experiment to find out what fizzy drinks do to our teeth. We put eggs into water and cola and left them overnight. Ask the children what happened to them!
In phonics this week most children will be revising the sounds they have been learning and practising using them in their writing. Miss Hutchinson’s children will be learning ie, ea, e-e, and i-e. Mrs Fulton’s group will be learning ‘ll’ and ‘ss’ as well as revising all the sounds they know. This week’s tricky word is ‘they’.
In numeracy the children will be ordering objects by height, length and size. They will be measuring classroom objects using Duplo bricks after estimating how many bricks will equal the object.
Next week we are planning a creative week so please can you collect cereal boxes etc. for model making.
Have a good week from the Reception team.
