Next in their transport topic Reception explored things that fly. In Literacy they shared the story ‘Ali and the magic carpet’ about a boy who travels to different places. They wrote their own version of the story choosing 3 different locations. In Maths they used the Numicon shapes to make teen numbers and numbers beyond 20. In Creative time they had a paper airplane competition and decorated our own magic carpets. During their free play we added beads to strings attached to numbered kites and cut, stuck and labeled items in a suit case that they would take on holiday with them. Outside they decorated gene lamps and played a 100 square game where the first one to reach 100 was the winner! They also made their own magic carpets using flattened cardboard boxes and role played flying to different places.
