Reindeer 2022 - 2023

Little Movers

We are really enjoying our PE sessions with Emma from Inspire+ and we used the story ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ to support us in learning some moving and travelling skills. The children listened incredibly carefully to the instructions that Emma gave us and they showed a range of confident travelling skills including some amazing jumping skills; remembering to use their arms to support them in their jumps and bending their knees on landing. Amazing PE skills everyone!

Super Clay Work!

We have been learning about the Hindu festival of lights and the story of Rama and Sita. The children really loved creating their own clay Diwali pots which they then painted.

Baking For The Little Red Hen!

We have had lots of fun baking bread for the Little Red Hen! We started by carefully weighing out our ingredients using weighing scales and using our numeral recognition skills to identify the numbers on the dial. Next we worked together in groups to mix all the ingredients together. We then used our strong muscles to knead the dough for a whole ten minutes before taking it to the school kitchen to leave to rise. We were so surprised to find that our dough had doubled in size when we collected it! Finally, we made our bread rolls into hedgehogs by pinching the dough to make spikes and adding raisins for eyes. Well done Reindeer Class – you were brilliant bakers!

Art

The children love art and have created some wonderful paintings of the local Bellmount Tower and some fantastic leaf prints! They also created super collages of poppies for when we commemorated Remembrance Day.

Role Play

The children really enjoy using our role play areas which are both inside and outside the classroom. They loved taking orders in the cafe and smoothie bar!

Introducing Numicon

Learning about numbers can be challenging for children as many struggle to understand the concept of numbers to begin with and struggle to make the connection between, say, the number 8, and the physical quantity that the number represents. The class have been introduced to Numicon shapes which are a multisensory way of learning, which means they learn by seeing, feeling and doing. Numicon are a system of flat, plastic shapes with holes in them. Each shape represents a number from one to 10 and each number has its own colour. When they're arranged in order, children can easily see connections between numbers, such as ‘one more’ or ‘one less’ as you can see in the photo below.
