Reception weekly blog (week ending 27th November 2020)

Date: 27th Nov 2020 @ 3:20pm

As the weather has got colder this week we have started to talk about an animal that lives in the coldest of all climates, Antarctica. The children have been spell bound by the plight of the Emperor Penguin and the lengths it goes to, to rear its young chick.
Our role play area has transformed into the Antarctic and the children have enjoyed spending time in there. We have been busy painting penguins and using 2D shapes to make one too. In our games sessions we have played the part of the Emperor penguin, waddling around balancing a ball on our feet, as if it were a precious egg, huddling together to keep warm and swimming to catch fish. We have imagined our ROLA as Antarctica and slid on our tummies down the hill!

In maths we have been making all the different ways to make 6 with counters and fingers. Have a look at the photograph below to see how we record this so you can have a go at home too. We also introduced the cuboid, with its 6 flat faces. Try and find some at home.

Look out for red words in your child’s reading folder, with a letter to explain. We say it is trickier to Fred a red, as we can not use our Fred talk to decode these words. Thank you for your support in helping your child to learn to read.

Have a lovely weekend,

The Reception Team smiley
