Reception: Autumn 2 Week 5

Reception: Autumn 2 Week 5

This week in Reception we began our new topic based on the book ‘My Cat Likes To Hide in Boxes’! We love our new roleplay aeroplane and we enjoy writing tickets for our pets so they can board the flight. We are matching letters with their capitals, designing and building homes for our pets and rehearsing our Nativity play. Plus during the cold weather, we have been investigating the ice outdoors and expanding our vocabulary to describe it!

Reception: Autumn 2 Week 2 Dear Zoo

Reception: Autumn 2 Week 2 Dear Zoo

This week we started our new topic, based on Rod Campbell’s ‘Dear Zoo’. Here at Barlow Hall school we use Pie Corbett’s ‘Talk 4 Writing’ principles to inform our literacy teaching. On Monday we took delivery of a big box from the postman. We discussed with our friends what could be inside and had a go at writing our suggestions. We opened the package to find a monkey that we named ‘George’!

On Thursday it was French Day in school. We all dressed up in red white and blue and enjoyed learning the names of numbers in French, food-tasting and performing ‘French exercises’ with our parents and carers.

What a wonderful week!
