This week in Reception we have continued working on our Japan topic. The children have been creating the famous piece of art named ‘The Great Wave off Kanagawa’ by the artist Katsushika Hokusai.
The children carefully used the technique of dipping string into paint to form the shapes of the waves from the picture. The classroom role-play areas have been transformed into Sushi restaurants and the children made their very own sushi to eat! Delicious!
We have been very impressed with the children coming into school and taking part in their ‘Morning Jobs’.
This week the challenges have been finding teen numbers in rice and matching the Numicon amounts, writing the letter S on a handwriting template, and creating repeating patterns on peg boards.
