On Monday RF embarked on a giant shape hunt all around the school. Our job was to spot all of the different shapes in the environment. We found so many wonderful shapes both inside and outside of the classroom. There were circles, triangles, oblongs, squares and even hexagons! It was a fantastic morning and we had lots of fun.
In celebration of anti bullying week Children throughout the entire school wore odd socks to spread the message that it is ok to be different.
We had a lovely morning talking about the different qualities and features that made us special unique individuals . We spoke about the things that made our friends special and ended our morning by passing on the smile.
On Tuesday Reception had a fabulous time on their class trip to the cinema. We took a coach to the Odeon cinema in Rochdale and settled down to watch the brilliant movie Ferdinand. We had lots of fun and the movie was really enjoyable.
Thank you to all of our parent helpers who came along.
Today we celebrated children in need. We spoke about why it is important to help others that are less fortunate than us. We helped make biscuits to sell to raise money for the worthy cause. We were allowed to dress in our own clothes for the day to help raise money. We also made some Pudsey badges which was soooooo much fun. In total our wonderful school raised over £1000. Thank you to all who donated. Were very grateful. Well done!!!
We love maths in RF and love to spend time in the maths area. This week we have been enjoying matching quantity to numerals. We used different numbered cars to math the numeral to different amounts of dots. We're all getting very good at it!!!
We are always so busy in reception. Learning is fun but very hard work. Here is some of the amazing things we have been doing in reception recently.
We love to read
We love to share books in reception. We have been talking a lot about the different characteristics of books and how we can use the pictures to help us read unfamiliar words. We have been practising using our phonetic knowledge to read simple sentences.
We have been reading the Gruffalo story this week and we absolutely love it! We came into school on Monday and there were footprints everywhere. We followed the footprints to the forest are where we found the Gruffalo story. We have been spending time recalling what happens in the story of the Gruffalo
We have had the most amazing week this week, learning all about Halloween and bonfire night. We read the book Room on a broom - written by Julia Donaldson. We really enjoyed reading this book and loved talking about the author, illustrator and characters. We Learnt about how to stay safe during bonfire night and completed lots of fun activities. Here are some pictures of us having lots and lots of fun!!!!
We made a magic with cat spit, witches snot and crushed bones. We talked about what might happen and then watched to see if our predictions were correct. It was so much fun and a little bit scary.
We had fun making pumpkin paintings. We used sponges instead of paint brushes and instead or orange we mixed yellow and red. Once we had mixed yellow and red we were surprised to see it had made orange.
