Welcome to Penguins!
This week we have been practicing our fantastic maths skills, recognising our numbers to 10 and counting out a given number of objects from a larger group.
Reception have all thoroughly enjoyed learning a dance to the music from Lion King. They all enthusiastically participated in the lessons and listened very carefully to the dance instructions. Miss Murray thought the final performance the children gave was fantastic. She also commented how good Reception were every week she taught them. We think they are all fantastic too!
We enjoyed a trip to our local garden centre, where we investigated the many different products that they sell. We even practised reading our numbers as we checked the prices of the plants and trees. The ‘Monkey Puzzle’ tree was very expensive! There was even a family of birds living in the shop. We really enjoyed choosing which plants we wanted to buy, and said a big thank you to Sooty’s who very kindly gave us some seeds and plants for our garden area.
Thank you very much to our fantastic parents for coming and joining us for our last stay and play session of the year. The children really enjoy sharing their learning and experiences with you, and we as a staff, really appreciate and enjoy sharing our class with yourselves. We look forward to seeing you again next year for more stay and play sessions.
We have been reading the story of 'The Naughty Bus' by Jan and Jerry Oke. We talked about where you often see red double decker buses, and investigated some of the main tourist attractions you can see in London. Finally we thought about what we might like to do on our holidays, and wrote postcards to our friends and family, sharing some of our fun adventures!
We have been learning about the different parts of plants and what a plant needs to grow. In our outdoor area, we have decided to develop our own little garden area and so we have started by planting our sunflower plants that we grew a few weeks ago, and some herbs to make our garden area smell lovely.
Thank you very much to all our fantastic parents/carers who have helped us to adopt a penguin through your generous donations. We have chosen to support Chester Zoo's 'Adopt an animal' scheme which will potentially allow the children the opportunity to visit the enclosure and see the penguins for themselves. As soon as we have more information/updates, we will share it with you via our class page. Once again, thank you for your continued support. We greatly appreciate it.
