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 went to the Playhouse in Norwich with India and Denmark classes to see ‘The Snail and the Whale’. We had great fun singing on the bus on the way there. When we arrived we were excited to be in the theatre and laughed when the little girl from the play hid from her dad amongst us! Everyone loved how they built the whale from different pieces of furniture, including the tail which was an armchair for the snail to whizz around on. We all laughed when they squirted us with water when they were trying to free the whale from the bay. Thank you to the Friends who gave us some money towards the cost of the ticket and bus!
The Snail and The Whale
Last week we had our reading café in class, we listened to ‘The snail and the whale’ by Julia Donaldson. We practised thinking of rhyming words such as snail, trail, whale, rail....
We made rocking snakes and whales and it was brilliant fun! We ate plenty of biscuits and had a play in the outside classroom together afterwards. Thanks to all the parents and grandparents who came along. The next café will be in the spring term.
This week in China we have been talking about fireworks and have drawn pictures on our huge touch screen. The children talked about the sounds the fireworks make and wrote the words next to their pictures. They all did really well changing the pen colours. It was lots of fun.
