A Royal Visitor in Reception
Tuesday 15th March | 1 comment
We have had a very exciting start to the week. The children went outside yesterday morning to find a Princess sitting alone and crying. The Princess had lost her friends, her carriage and her crown. She was especially upset as it is her birthday next week and she was worried that she wasn’t going to be able to celebrate it.
The children in both classes have come up with lots of ideas to help the Princess and have decided to throw her a party next Monday afternoon. They have already been busy writing invitations, making cars and carriages and wrapping up presents for her. Please can the children bring a party outfit to school with them on Monday 21st March to change into for the party during the afternoon.
We have been very impressed with the children’s thoughtfulness towards the Princess and with their ideas so far. The children have been making cakes in the mud kitchen, building castles outside and even making perfume for the princess using leaves and flowers!
In maths, the children have been recapping 2D shapes and looking at 3D shapes. In school, we describe 2D shapes as ‘flat shapes’ and 3D shapes as ‘solid shapes’. For the rest of the week, we will be describing the properties of shapes and will be looking at the different faces of 3D shapes. It is also important for the children to recognise 2D and 3D shapes in the environment, so we will be doing lots of exploring in and out of the classrooms.
