Week commencing Monday 16th January 2017
Hello and welcome to the Reception blog!
This week we have continued our focus on owls and have had our first 'Have a go' writing session - where the children had to verbalise and then write a fact about owls. This is always a very challenging activity for the children with so many things to remember when writing. However, they were all willing to participate and we were able to record a range of interesting owl facts - well done children! We have also been working with money in mathematics and the children have been counting with 1p. We have begun to look at the value of 2p coins compared to 1p - this has proved to be hard work for many children and it would be great at the weekend if you could continue to let the children play with 1p and 2p coins and discuss different ways of making monetary totals using these coins. For example, 7p = 1px7, 1p+2px3, 3p+2px2 etc. We have also unleashed our creative talents and have created 'eggbox' owls - look out for them on our display boards shortly!
Have a happy weekend with your families and we look forward to seeing the children on Monday where our woodland animal focus for the week will be hedgehogs! Please see our photos HERE
