Summer 2 2017
Our topic this half term is 'Seaside Sensation.' We will be reading many books related to the seaside.
We read the book The Sand Horse. We talked about the story and then role played the story. We went and worked together in groups outside and created our own sand sculptures using wet sand.
In the outdoor learning area we re-told the story of The Whales' Song, Dolphin Boy and Seal Surfer. We each took a different role and acted as that character throughout. We had great fun and can now talk about each story confidently.
We have been painting pebbles with acrylic paint.
We have created a seaside cafe and a beach area in our classroom. Look at us taking on the role of a costumer, shopkeeper and children on the beach.
We investigated rock pools. We looked at a real crab. It was very interesting. We are able to label a crab. We made some crabs using paper plates. Don't they look good?
Summer 1 2017
Our topic this half term is 'If you go down to the woods today.....!
We will be reading many books related to the woods.
We have created the Three Bears Cottage. We have been re-telling the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We have had great fun dressing up and changing the story to make it more fun.
We followed a recipe and made three different flavours of porridge. One was too salty, one was too sweet and one was just right!!!
To help us recognise, name 2D shapes and be able to describe them we used different shaped coloured paper we created lovely pictures of Goldilocks. We then sorted 3D shapes.
We have drawn a story map of The Gruffalo. We then used the map to re-tell the story to an audience. They all loved our pictures.
We followed visual instructions to create a Graffol using paper bags and a variety of materials.
We went on a coach to Cwmcarn Forest Drive. We met Martin Green the environment teacher who took us for a walk. We looked at the different types of vegetation and went on a minibeast hunt. We learnt to recognise and name many minibeast. It was great fun!
Spring 2 2017
Our topic this half term is called 'Mirror, mirror.' We will be exploring the story 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.'
We have created a hairdresser in the classroom. The children have been making hair appointments for clients, cutting, dying and curling hair (don't worry only pretending). They are having great fun learning through role-play.
We are having great fun dressing up as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and playing in the dwarf's cottage.
To celebrate St David's day we painted pictures of daffodils, ate Welsh cakes and sang Welsh songs during our Eisteddfod.
The children will have great fun finding out how dinosaurs lived by exploring a range of information books and listening to many stories.
In the role play area we have made a dinosaur den. We have been pretending to live in the dinosaur age by dressing up in dinosaur outfits, playing with dinosaur puppets and toys. Don't we look scary?
We found out our favourite dinosaur in the Reception class is the T-Rex. We created a pictogram using the computer programme 2Count to record what are favourite dinosaurs are.
