In reception this week we have been reading the story Little Red Riding Hood. We have been using descriptive language to describe the contents in Grandma’s basket. In choosing time some children enjoyed acting the story out with friends using different resources that they found in the classroom.
We talked about what we liked about the story.
WD said, “I like it when the wolf hides Granny in the wardrobe”.
FLM said, “I like Red Riding Hoods coat because it is red”.
MB said, “I like the soft wolf when is sneaky”.
We also discussed the children’s favourite traditional tale.
EB said, “my favourite is the Gingerbread Man, I like it when he runs away.”
LG said, “I like Goldilocks and the Bears story, I like her golden hair.”
In maths this week we have been using first, then and now to support us with adding on more using different stories and scenarios to support us. We have gotten very confident and recognising amounts without needing to count each object.
This week we have also been looking at maps as well as drawing our own maps from our favourite fairy tales. We looked on google maps JP said, “I think I live down the opposite bit of the co-op”. MB said, “the school is near here”.
