‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Spring Term A

Week 2

Six Dinner Sid

Our story of the week is "Six Dinner Sid" by Inga Moore.  It is a fabulous story about a sly cat who manages to get six dinners a day!  We made lost cat and 'how to care for ...' pet shop posters.

 How many are hiding?

In Maths the children were shown some farm animals. They were told there were 5 in total and that some were hiding.  Reception counted how many they could see and worked out how many were in the barn.

How many children are there altogether?

Reception had to count how many children are on the bus and how many are waiting at the bus stop.  We represented the children using red and yellow counters on a 5 frame and then count how many children there are altogether.

The Happy Puzzle Company

We worked in small groups to complete challenging puzzles.  These games helped to develop our social and thinking skills.

Week 1

 Owl Babies 

This week Reception listened to the story "Owl Babies" by Martin Waddell.  We followed simple instructions to make an 'owl on toast' snack and told the story in our own words using a story map.  Reception discussed what the owl characters could be saying and wrote their own speech bubbles.  In Maths we have started a new White Rose Maths topic 'Alive in 5'.  The children worked out 1 less when singing number rhymes, learned about the number zero and the composition of 5.
