Reception’s story of the week was ‘Goldilocks and the 3 bears’. In Literacy they used character blocks to act out the story. In Maths they used bears in a bed to create pairs that make 5 and 10 and wrote the matching number sentences. During their free play inside they made repeated patterns with bear counters and used letter tiles in a porridge pot to make and write a list of 3 letter words. Outside they acted out the story using bears, bowls and chairs; made bear masks; and read words on fish and fed them to baby bear. They also used Numicon part-whole cards to make different number bonds and wrote the number sentences on white boards.
