Our weekly update 20.11.15 Reception A

Our Learning this Week

20th November 2015


Language, Literacy and Communication


We have had lots of fun playing in our new party role play area and lots of talk about parties we have been to.

We read Kipper’s Birthday Party and looked at how to write an invitation.


Mathematical Development


We have been looking at repeating patterns this week. We have made patterns using ourselves, our hand movements, pegboards and the sorting teddies.

Can you find something to make a pattern with at home?


Knowledge and Understanding of the World


We also went to the creativity pod to use the computers to draw a happy face on Tizzy’s Tools. We were learning to use the mouse with control and find letters on the keyboard to write out=r names

We decided to make cakes from the same recipe Kipper used in the story…yummy rock cakes.

Personal and Social Development, Wellbeing and Cultural Diversity.


It was Anti Bullying week this week and we celebrated by listening to a story about bullying and then talking about who we could talk to if someone was hurting them.

Creative Development


We made some party food with the play dough. We had layered cakes, and different shaped cookies…mmmmmm.

We made super anti bulling masks to wear to an anti bullying assembly

Physical Development


We had PE with Jonathan on Monday and we also practised our listening skills by playing some traditional party games like musical statues and musical bumps


Welsh Language Development


We are becoming very good at counting in Welsh – Da Iawn!!]

We have also enjoyed singing our Welsh songs.

                      Anything else…


We have Forest School every Wednesday until Christmas holidays, so please send your child into school with the correct clothing. The forest is muddy and cold so please dress your child in layers with a waterproof trousers, coat and wellies.

They will also need a change of clothes which include pants, socks and shoes to change into when they return to school.
