Since our topic is ‘Ticket to Ride’, our class book this week is ‘Up and Down the Andes’ and Reception have been looking at the cultures of Spanish speaking countries. They tried some Spanish foods; some children wanted to tell everyone about their food tasting and teach St Williams about Spanish food. They came up with lots of describing words and sentences using their Phonics knowledge. Here is some of the wonderful writing they have done this week about their experiences.
Jessica: “We tasted Spanish food. I ate Spanish bread. My bread was crunchy and yummy.”
Lewis: “I had one piece of bread and it was yummy and it was smooth.”
Lucy: “All the Reception children had Spanish food and some didn’t like it and I tried the Spanish bread. My friend Ava liked the bread. I did not like it because it was slimy.”
Today, Reception enjoyed a lovely Teddy Bears’ Picnic outside in the lovely warm weather! Thank you for being so beautifully behaved, Reception!
The children have made their own ice lollies! They chose a sugar-free cordial (orange, lemon or blackcurrant) and could put in some healthy fruit if they wanted to (mango, pineapple, blueberries…). We talked about what wouldn’t be healthy and what we needed to do to freeze our ice lollies. After several trips to the freezer we left them in overnight to enjoy after lunch today. Yum!
Reception were learning about ice today and experimented with melting and freezing. This turned into a sensory play experience! Stay tuned for funky ice making to come!
A great start to ‘Stay and Play ‘ week. Thank you to everyone who has attended so far. We are looking forward to the rest of the week!
Today we had lots of fun at our sports with Wigan Warriors, we had the opportunity to take part in lots of activities.
