Reception- A Squash and a Squeeze

In Literacy this week we have been reading A Squash and a Squeeze by Julia Donaldson. We shared the story together during carpet time and then used picture cards to sequence the story. We then thought about all of the Julia Donaldson books that we have read and chose our favourite story to write a book review.

In Maths this week we have been learning about halving, we learnt that halving is sharing something equally, making two equal amounts. We made a certain number of play dough items for our mats and then we had to take away half and explain how much we had left over.

This week in gardening the children worked in pairs and planted runner beans into plastic cups filled with cotton wool, we watered them and are watching the shoots grow.

We have also got 5 caterpillars in our classroom and we are watching them grow each day. In about 2 weeks they will turn into butterflies- we are so excited!

We hope you have a lovely bank holiday weekend.

Mrs Fenner and Miss Gill.
