November 2021 in Reception 2

In English this month we have enjoyed a variety of stories such as “Whatever Next” by Jill Murphy and “Aliens Love Underpants” by Claire Freedman and Ben Cort. We used these stories to help us with our writing, Maths, creating and fine motor skills.

In Maths we have been focusing on positional language and used the bear from “Whatever Next” to help us learn vocabulary such as below, under, next to, between. As part of our fine motor activities we enjoyed weaving blankets out of card for our bears.

Each Monday we enjoy craft activities to support our growing imaginations and cutting skills. We used the story “Aliens Love Underpants” to help us make our own aliens using lollipop sticks, card and googly eyes.

On Fridays we love to have pen discos were we use different music and move our pens around the page however we feel. Sometimes we watch videos to help such as showing us how to make spirals and zigzags, and other times we just see what we create in the moment. We love pen discos in Reception!
