This week in reception we have been learning all about the Nativity story and the special celebration of Advent. We made our own play dough advent wreaths, Chris tingles and advent candles. We also wrote some captions all about what happened in the story. We wrote about Angel Gabriel visiting Mary, Mary and Joseph travelling on a donkey and baby Jesus being born.
In maths we have been identifying all different kinds of 2D shapes we might find every day. We looked closely at squares and rectangles. Did you know shapes are everywhere? We saw all sorts of shapes while outside playing and all around our classroom.
We have more exciting things to look forward to next week because our story is Dear Santa. In preparation for Christmas we put up our Christmas tree and decorated it. It looks so beautiful.
Reception have had a very busy week! We have been practising for our Nativity production on the 6th and 7th of December. We are very excited to have our families watch us sing and perform.
Our maths this week has been very arty! We are learning about shapes and their properties. We looked at the work of Kandinsky focusing on circles and triangles.
Learning about the Loch Ness Monster for our Myths and Legends project has been so exciting! We have made Scottish shortbread, made homes for Nessie and even went on a Nessie hunt in P.E.
