Reception News Spring 1 WB 24.1.22
After spending time thinking about our local area, this week we moved our curiosities further by comparing Croxley Green to another country. After some discussions with the children we decided to focus our learning on China.
We started off the week by looking at the similarities and differences between our country and China. The children enjoyed learning about how they use chopsticks to eat food and loved experimenting with these during their planning time.
Later in the week, we showed the children pictures of the Chinese cherry blossom trees and discussed how artists like to paint these. The children themselves then became artists and developed their creative skills by learning how to use different tools to create thin strokes for the branches and fingertips for the blossom.
I wonder where our learning will take us next week?
