Reception's question of the week was 'When is my birthday and how do we celebrate it?' We looked at birthdays around the world, sang days of the week songs and planned a surprise birthday party for our class monsters Ziggy and Zag. We made party decorations and party hats, baked biscuits and wrote invitations to put in our friends message pockets.
We then looked at the book 'The hungry caterpillar'. We looked at how people change and grow and how caterpillars do. We made caterpillars and butterflies, went on a bug hunt and practised some days of the week.
We have also been:
learning new phonics sounds, s,a,t,p
Looking at what is more, less and the same and how we can check it
Spotting spider webs on our school fence!
