Reception Weekly Update (4) - Week beg. 6.5.24

This week, we have been making the most of the beautiful sunshine. The children thoroughly enjoyed their second swimming lesson in the sun. They played lots of games in the pool to boost their confidence in the water. A big thank you to Mrs Radford for being pool-side to support the lessons.

As part of our minibeasts topic, we learnt about bees and why they are an important part of our ecosystem. We found out that the number of bees is decreasing so we planted some flower seeds in our outside area to encourage little visitors. As well as having their weekly music lesson, the children also listened to Rimsky Korsakov's famous piece of classical music, 'The Flight of the Bumblebees'. The children thought about how the music made them feel and created some artwork as they listened.

In maths, we have been working on our number bonds of 10. The children have been using 10 frames and double dice frames to develop their understanding of the numbers that go together to make 10. We are also using the game Hit the Button as a fun way to practise: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button.

In drawing club, we listened to the traditional tale of Thumbelina. The children drew and wrote about the main character and thought about what the old woman could use to make thumb-size, miniscule furniture.
