Peas, Carrots and catching!
What a busy week we have all had! I can't quite believe that we are at the end of Summer 1 and 5/6th of the way through Reception! This week we have all been challenging ourselves to try different things or do things we haven't done in a while such as a game or a puzzle.
On Monday we practised our throwing and catching skills in PE
Eating a rainbow
This week we discussed why it was important to eat vegetables and fruit. Fiorst we looked at them and made observational drawings then we learnt about where many fruit and vegetables grow. Underground, above ground or on a tree. We cut them open to look at the seeds and stones. Then passed them around to look at the insides and even smelt them!
This week we created our own Super heros...Supercarrot! The children had great fun making masks and adding capes to carrots before using matchsticks for arms and pipe cleaners for legs.
After we made our Supercarrots we though about what super powers they might have and wrote some amazing sentences about them. I am so proud by how far their writing has come in the last half term.
Can you free Evil Pea?
Using our funky fingers we had to drop water from pipettes to free the frozen peas.
Puzzles and Games
We have enjoyed playing with puzzles and games this week.
We hope you have a lovely half term. This week's homework is a reading challenge to try and read 5 times over the holiday. Special stickers will be awarded for those who complete it.
PE - look out for an email about PE next half term as we will be venturing outside to practise for our much anticipated sports day.
Have a wonderful holiday
