They also developed their cutting skills using a ‘fork as their friend’ to stabilise the fruit and then used a knife safely to cut each piece into bite-sized pieces. Reception have enjoyed different fruit inspired creative activities including: printing, close observational drawing, cutting and sticking. We read the story, Handa’s Surprise and enjoyed thinking about the different fruits and animals she saw on her journey to visit her friend Akeyo. Using puppets and props from the Handa’s Surprise story sack, they retold the story before then writing about their favourite part.

In Mathematics, we have been learning about the numbers 6 and 7. We have been using the number fans and bricks to find one more and one less. We enjoyed ordering fruits in size order and completed a cutting and sticking activity from largest to smallest.

In PE we enjoyed working on our balance and core strength, we followed instructions and positioned our bodies balanced on different limbs!

Next week we will be thinking about Harvest, Bread and Pizza.
