The last theme in Reception’s 'Wonderful Winter' topic was 'Snowmen'. In Literacy they wrote instructions for how to build a snowman and in Maths they made repeated patterns with shapes on scarf templates. In Creative time they made melted snowmen pictures using paint, glue, and snowman parts. During their free play they matched lower case letters and capital letters to the correct pictures to complete the snowmen bodies. They also added the correct number of buttons to numbered snowmen. They had fun making snowman puppets and used what they had learned in Maths to make repeated patterns with the beads and strings.
They also made Santa hats to wear with their Christmas jumpers and had lots of fun during Christmas jumper day too!
