This week in reception we have been learning about snails. We enjoyed looking at some non-fiction books that told us lots of facts about snails. We then used our knowledge and wrote some facts onto our snail paper. The children all tried really hard and are really developing their writing. We have now put into place some red word vocabulary mats which contain red words up to their level along with check sheets which encourage children to check they have included finger spaces, full stops, capital letters and checked red words. They are beginning to use these really well and are becoming very mature, ready for Year 1.
We enjoyed creating some artwork in the style of the artist Matisse. We used different coloured squares to create a collage in the shape of a snail following Matisse’s art work. The children were very good at this and enjoyed being artists.
Thank you to everyone who was able to make it to our celebration assembly. It was great to see children sharing their work with all the adults who were there. We hope you enjoyed looking at all of our amazing work and learning about the ladybird life cycle through our dance in the hall. Here are a few pictures from our morning:
