This week we have been reading ‘Room on the Broom’ and some magical things have been happening in our classroom.
A magical mixture was left in Reception with the label ‘Reception’s special mixture’ so we poured it into our caldron and it started to foam, we thought it smelt a little funny. In English we wrote potion recipes using the sounds we know, we also designed and described a mode of transport for the witch. We had lots of questions to ask the witch so we wrote them down and put them in the caldron and over night the witch answered them. On Wednesday at Hinchley Woods, the boys collected sticks and we used string to tie them together to create broomsticks.
In Mathematics, we have been focusing on number formation and matching quantity to number. We have been exploring numicon, we used conkers to count how many holes there are in each piece.
In Phonics, we learnt d, g and o, we made dinosaurs for ‘d’ and painted a ‘g’ using green grapes. We learnt how to blend got, dad, dot and and by pushing the sound buttons.
