This week, Reception class have been thinking about the theme of friendship. They have also been focussing on how they show respect towards one another and their learning environments.
The story focus this week ,The Rainbow Fish by Mark Pfister, fits in beautifully with these two themes; it is a lovely, heart-warming story of sharing and the happiness that sharing can bring yourself and others. It also depicts how difficult sharing can be and the impact that sharing can have on friendships.
Over the week, the class have been making and sharing friendship cards, bracelets and models. They had fun building an under-the-sea scene and then retelling the story. They also worked together as a team and created a large scale collage of the Rainbow Fish!
In Maths, the children have been building and comparing different measurements. They had lots of practical experience measuring length, height and also explored and compared size.
Yesterday, we were paid a visit by Mrs Falco, mum to Fraser and Vincent in KS2. She is a district nurse and came in to tell us about how she helps people in our local community who can’t leave their house to get medical treatment. The children had lots of fun exploring the medical equipment! Thank you so much Mrs Falco!
Wishing you all a lovely weekend,
The Reception Team
