Skittles Subtraction

This week, Reception have been reinforcing their understanding of subtraction in a range of different ways. The most popular activity by far was ‘Skittles Subtraction’. The children had to try to knock down the skittles and then write the subtraction sentence that went with it. As you can see, they had lots of fun!

In Literacy, we have continued to focus on the story ‘Superworm’ by Julia Donaldson. We have been learning the Superworm song, hatching our own plan to save him and retelling the story using our individual or group story maps.

In Knowledge and Understanding the World, we have continued to learn about worms and other mini-beasts. We have been asking ourselves scientific questions such as ‘Can worms see in the dark?’ and ‘Are worms safe from predators because they live underground?’ We have also been categorising foods and other things that we think worms do and do not eat.

The Reception were as usual, exceptionally well behaved in this morning’s May Procession in honour of Our Lady.

Well done children!

Next week, we are going to be thinking about the life cycle of a butterfly and focussing on the story, ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’.

Have a lovely weekend,

The Early Years Team
