Our Learning – week beginning 31/10/16

What are we learning about in Reception?

Week beginning: Monday 31st October

  • Wednesday – the fire service will be coming to visit us!
  • We will be recording what happened in the visit.
  • Counting forwards and backwards and matching numeral to quantity using the story “10 Spooky Skeletons”.
  • Discussing firework safety.


How to help at home?

  • If participating in Halloween related activities – use this as an opportunity to consolidate numbers; counting, sharing, doubling, halving sweets and treats. What number houses did you visit? (Of course you can always practising these skills using other items too)
  • If attending any bonfire/firework related events – talk about safety aspects.
  • Check if your smoke detectors are working at home – talk about what else the children saw/experienced from our visit from the fire service.
