RECEPTION

What a fantastic week we have had learning about 'The Great Wall of China'.
The children have loved all the activities we have taken part in and have have learnt lots of new facts about China. They created their own fact files, build lots of models and have taken part in lots of creative activities. On Thursday we tasted some Chinese foods which all the children absolutely loved!! In maths we have focused on measuring and the children have been using cubes and rulers to measure different objects. 
The children have really immersed in this topic and were very excited for their work to be displayed in the 'Holy Trinity Art Gallery'. 
 
Next week, we will be properly starting our topic on water. The children will be brainstorming this, thinking about why we need water, where we find water and the importance of it. We will be talking to the children about the water cycle. We will also be recapping on 3D shapes and the properties of these shapes. The children will be doing some tie dying so please can you bring in one named white round neck t shirt by Wednesday the 19th. On wednesday it is Reception Sports Day at 9.15am in the playground. 
 
I hope you have a great weekend!
