We continued learning about Chinese New Year in our Literacy today by acting out The Great Race!

Today in Literacy we read a book called 'A House in the Woods'. After we read the story we all tried to make our own houses. Some children had a go at using real tools and wood to make a house! Thanks to Mr Sandham who helped us bring the story to life!

We learn so much when we're in the mud kitchen, this morning a group of children worked together pretending they were on a television cooking programme! They made a bean soup with a side of bread or toast, it was delicious!
Today we started learning our letter sounds. The first one is 'S' and we will be learning 'a', 't' and 'p' this week too. We have tried hard to sort and find objects beginning with 's' and we have tried to write the grapheme. A great start Reception!
