This week in Reception we have been thinking about what makes our friends special. The children really enjoyed doing a survey of all their friends’ favourite foods. Mrs Golden has been visiting the classes and helping the children to take a portrait of their friends using the iPads. In maths this week we have been looking at the number 5. Placing the numbers on a blank number line to gain an understanding of size and position of number. We have also been looking at number bonds to 5 and finding all the possible answers. We also set up a shop for the children to count out the correct money. Our guided reading text this week was We’re going on a Lion Hunt by David Axtell. We compared the book with We’re going on a bear hunt by Michael Rosen and the children enjoyed joining in with the repeated refrains. The children also made African necklaces as part of our creative work.
