Reception - China
Welcome to China class. We are in Reception and our teacher is Mrs Barber. Mrs Fletcher and Mrs Waupotitsch are our Teaching Assistants. We enjoy learning through play and using our outdoor classroom.
We had a lovely trip to Gressenhall. The children were very well behaved and had lots of fun. We helped Cinderella with her chores on the farm and had a tractor ride. We helped Wicked the Witch make potions in the woods and then helped the curator find all the objects that she had stolen from the museum. Lots of us fell asleep on the bus on the way home.
In arts week we had lots of fun making a large seaside collage, helped paint the massive bucket, made flowers for Wymondham in Bloom shop displays and painted self-portraits. We took part in the interactive Big Sing with the children at the Norfolk Showground. At the end of the week we really enjoyed being the audience for the Key Stage sports afternoon and were brilliant at cheering them on.
We have been busy over the last couple of weeks learning about space and we have baked moon rocks. We weighed and measured carefully, mixed the ingredients and talked about how it changes.
Outdoors we have been having lots of fun learning how to use the new play trail - it’s very exciting!
Last week we were very lucky to have a visitor in class- Megan. She came to talk to us about the Norfolk and Norwich festival. She told us she needed us to help all the animals in the woodland at Chapelfield Gardens. We packed up our bags ready to go on the mission together. The rabbit had a tree over his burrow and we helped push it off. The mole couldn’t smell where her lunch was and the little wren needed to make friends with other people because he was lonely. We used our imagination really well, and it was brilliant fun! Lots of children enjoyed the garden party at the festival with their families last weekend after she visited!
In maths this week we have been learning how to make number pairs (bonds) to ten, e.g 1+9, 2+8 and so on. We’ve used numicon, beads, cubes and written number sentences. Some of us know some - or all- pairs already. What number bonds do you know?
