September 2017 in Reception 2

The children have had a great start to the school year, settling in really quickly and understanding the routines of the classroom. Our topic for the first half term is Our Bodies. The key texts we have looked at are Harry and the Dinosaurs go to School, Rainbow Fish, Oliver’s Vegetables and Funnybones. The children loved learning about the bones in our bodies, looking at x-rays on the light box and making their own skeletons. They have enjoyed acting as doctors and patients in the Doctors Surgery role play area.

We have been learning about keeping healthy and did some food tasting where we tried carrots, yellow pepper, spinach and sweetcorn. The class favourite was spinach!

In Maths, we have been learning about the properties of 2D shapes. We created pictures of our choice using 2D shapes and made 2D shapes outside using pieces of string.
