This week the children have been reading the story 'Jack and the Beanstalk' and have planted their own magic beans!
They have then written instructions on how to plant a bean. The children are watering their beans every day and keeping a close eye on them to see if they shoot. In maths this week the children have been learning to name and describe 2D and 3D shapes. In their child initiated learning the children have been using junk to create castles. They have also been acting out the story of Jack and the Beanstalk in the role play area.
This week was also Science week with an Eco theme. Reception have decided to reduce the amount of snack/fruit waste that we have and the children have designed a compost bin. Every day the children are collecting and saving their snack waste to put in the compost bin.
