Reception Week Beginning 16.5.22

It’s been another busy week in Reception Class.

This week, the children’s learning has been focused around the themes presented in the book, ‘Oi! Get off our Train’.

This book tells the story of a little boy, who sets off on a round-the-world night train to dreamland, with only his toy dog for company. Before long, all sorts of endangered animals are asking if they can jump up and join them on their journey!

Inspired by this, the children have learnt about how we can help endangered animals and have considered how they themselves can help to build a better world. The children also watched this animation of the letter written by Pope Francis to the whole world, entitled Laudato Si’.

The children also had lots of fun creating and playing in a train/ tube station role play area outside.

In Maths, the children have been making up addition stories using the language of First, Then, Now. They have also been encouraged to explore addition practically during their Child Initiated Learning time.

Next week, we are looking forward to learning about Queen Elizabeth II and the rest of the royal family.

Have a lovely weekend,

The Reception Team.
