Reception Spring Term Week 10

In RE this week, Reception have been focussing on Luke’s account of Palm Sunday; when Jesus triumphantly entered Jerusalem on a donkey.  The children demonstrated their understanding of the story through role play, writing their own versions of the story, painting pictures, making palm trees and building their own gates of Jerusalem with small construction.

In Maths, the children have been looking at properties of 2D and 3D shapes, and have been sorting and constructing their own.

The children have also enjoyed listening to the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. They have been busy turning the outdoor role play area into a giant’s castle complete with beanstalk, measuring and comparing  objects against giant footprints, creating string instruments, writing different endings to the story  and building their own castles.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend,

Mrs Theo and Mrs Gymer
