The 100 Decker Bus
Next in their ‘Terrific Transport’ topic Reception explored other vehicles that go on the road. In Literacy they shared the story ‘The 100 Decker Bus’ and talked about where the bus went on his journey. They made their own town using wooden blocks and labelled the buildings and features. In Maths they used a bus and Lego people to tell subtraction and addition stories and wrote the matching number sentences. During their free play they wrote the ‘tricky words’ onto Lego bricks and used Lego bricks to make repeated patterns and numbers. They also printed with the Lego bricks and paint to make vehicle pictures and made Lego vehicles for their display in the dining room. They particularly enjoyed counting the number of vehicles that they saw on the main road near the school during their traffic survey.
