Reception: 25th September

This week we have been looking closely at being Down on the Farm. In the garden we have used Autumn materials to help us reinforce our number and letter formation, you can do so much with conkers and leaves! We continued our counting and understanding of more and less and explored using 2D shapes to make an animal picture. On Thursday Ark Farm visited us and we had a great day with the animals. We all had a ride on the Pony called Jessica. We learnt about the different animals the farm had brought to Manor Lodge and we were able to go into the enclosure to stroke them. As we had the farm visit, we used this for our writing and wrote about what we were looking forward to before and what we enjoyed afterwards. Our role play area has been a Farm Food Shop, we have been preparing and packaging food that would be sold. We have been making notes on our clipboards and recording what we have sold. Our small world toys have been great for us to make mini farms and extend our imagination. It has been such a great learning week!
