It has been a week full of colour in Reception this week! The children have been busy little bees exploring colour in our Creative Area. We started off by looking and talking about the 3 primary colours. We continued our discussions by talking about what others colours we could make. We decided to put our thoughts and ideas to the test and had lots of fun mixing the colours together using our hands! We loved the feeling of paint on our hands and rubbing the colours together to find out what colour we had made. Later on in the week we looked at what happens when we add black or white to a given colour. We experimented with this on paper plates and we learned how to make pink, light blue and dark green and lots of other funny looking colours!
The children have loved writing cards to each other last week and so this week we learned how to write a thank you card. We talked about using the word 'dear' instead of 'to' in our writing. The children have also learned how to write shopping lists. They have been using lots of food flash cards to create their lists and made many trips to Cold Storage for Mrs Smith. One less job to do at the weekend parents!
This week we have been singing 10 Green Bottles and lots of number songs. We have tried really hard to practise our number writing this week remembering not to write our numbers the wrong way.
This week we had our first visit from our Year 5 Reading Buddies. The children were really excited to meet them and we had a wonderful time getting to know our new friends in the Primary school.
The children are making great progress in their daily phonic sessions and some of us have started to use this knowledge to read simple words like mat, sat, pin, tin, in, it.
Another fantastic week in RSJS, well done everyone!
