A chilly week in RK!

Friday 1st February | 2 comments

We have had a super week of learning, the children are really focusing on learning new things. They have certainly enjoyed the change in weather. In outdoor play this week we have hunted for spiders webs and found some big webs and some tiny ones. We have talked about the shapes we see, this then led to us finding some icicles on the roof.

Also in outdoor play we have been writing and making marks in the frost. We found out that we could either use our fingers or sticks. The children have also learnt how to play hangman, this is really helping them sounding out and spelling words.

The children have been doing some super work in maths. Last week they looked at the words more and less/fewer, followed by understanding how to calculate 1 less this week. They are beginning to understand that less/fewer means you don’t get as many of something. They have loved learning the one less song (see Reception learning blog).

The last couple of weeks we have learnt how to fix water leaks, all about the titanic, had a PE lesson delivered by Frederike, made animal books, potions, made our own grit and whistles played phonic games and done some dancing/gymnastics…


We are really focusing some of the children’s learning on the pink key words. A lot of children seem a little stuck on this reading level due to the tricky words to learn, tricky because they can’t sound them out. We would really appreciate you playing the caterpillar reading game to support this learning. The pink tricky words are – my, was, we, you, said.

Apologies for all the photos this is due to no blog last week.

Have a super weekend, wrap up warm! See you Monday
