A definite highlight of our week was making fruit kebabs. We talked about the importance of eating healthily and how important fruit and vegetables are in our diet. The children then made choices about which ones they wanted to include in their kebabs – some children were very adventurous, deciding to try new things. 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 – lovely observational drawings of pineapples have been made in oil pastels which are going to look ‘tip top’ on display in our classroom.
In mathematics, we have been ordering numbers and working at forming the numbers 5 and 6 correctly. We have also been enjoying learning the names of the two-dimensional shapes and we worked well with our ‘talking partners’ to sort the shapes correctly. In our phonics sessions, we have continued developing our blending skills, as well as learning the correct formation of letters /c/, /k/, /ck/ and /e/.
Next week we will be off to Pizza Express – we cannot wait to make delicious pizzas!
