This week, in Reception, we read the traditional tale, The Three Little Pigs. We came to school to find a crime scene in our classrooms. At the crime scene were footprints, straw, sticks and bricks. This quickly led us to think that the footprints must belong to the big bad wolf and left them after he had blown down two of the three pigs’ houses. We spent the week engaging in activities that would help us confirm that he was the culprit, including recording clues that we could see, creating wanted posters and cracking codes.
In maths, we focussed our learning on weight. We learned the different vocabulary related to weight - heavy, light, heavier, lighter, heaviest, and lightest. Through the week, we engaged in lots of practical activities that allowed us to explore the weights of different objects and made comparisons using the mathematical language.
For topic, we conducted an experiment where we explored objects and what we could, or could not, huff and puff and blow over with balloon pumps.
Daisy – My favourite traditional tale is The Three Little Pigs. It starts with, ‘once upon a time’.
Leo – Weight means heavy and light things.
