This led to some interesting discussions about animal conservation and looking after the planet. It was lovely to hear how passionate Reception were about looking after animals and how they were saddened if they saw litter in their environment. We enjoyed listening to the Saint-Saens The Carnival of the Animals with Joanna Lumley & The London Mozart Players.

In mathematics this week, we have been learning to tell the time using o’clock and have been learning about days of the week, as well as discussing differences between day and night. We made clocks out of a hula hoop, numbers with sticks for hands and worked with a partner to place the numbers in the correct place. We also made ourselves a paper plate clock to practise telling the time  to o’clock at home!

On Monday we enjoyed a ‘friendship workshop’ for anti-bullying week. We enjoyed playing games with a variety of partners during our session and celebrated how unique we all are! We acted out things that we enjoy doing and celebrated these with our friends.

Next week, we are continuing with the theme with another week of learning about animals!
