Reception Latest News Spring1 Week 3

This week we have continued to explore our planet and the effects we have on it.

We developed a recycling centre in our role play areas and explored a variety of materials that we could reuse and recycle. We revisited the skills of cutting and joining in art as we created our ‘rubbish robots’ using a range of reusable materials such as cereal boxes, toilet rolls and bottle tops.

In maths this week we have been exploring the composition of the number 5 using the rhyme ‘5 Little Speckled frogs’. The children enjoyed the opportunity to act out the rhyme and revisit composition in planning time by sticking the correct number of frogs on the lily pads and writing a number sentence.

RSPB’s Great British Birdwatch

Today the Eco warriors took part in the RSPB’s Great British Birdwatch. We located ourselves near the allotment beds because we’ve heard lots of chirping there before. We only saw one little sparrow making the noise but we did see a lot of pigeons, one blackbird, 2 crows, 1 magpie, 4 black headed gulls and one red kite.

It’s not too late for you to take part at home too – you have until the 19th February!
