We have used Goldilocks and the Three Bears as our learning theme. We started the week by listening to and retelling the story using books, puppets and the role play area. We wrote our own versions in our diaries as well. In Maths, we used the bears and their friends to help us with finding one or two less; singing ‘There were ten in the bed…’ also helped with our understanding of subtraction. We also comparing the size of different objects using vocabulary such as large, medium and small.
Asking Reception to make a bear was fascinating: we had bears made from Lego, fabric, play dough, paper, boxes, people and even the large construction resources outside! A whole jungle was created in the small world area for the bears to live including labels to explain who lived there! Well done Reception for another busy and creative learning week.
