This week, we have been learning all about Owls.
We have looked at non-fiction books and have learned that owls, like to hunt for prey at night and that baby owls are called owlets.
We have enjoyed looking at conkers, chestnuts and pine cones under a magnifying glass.
We talked about how things look and feel. The chestnuts are in a very prickly shell and we had to handle it carefully.
Next week, we will be learning about vegetables and reading a book called Oliver's Vegetables.
I am pleased to say that the children have settled into Reception very well. We enjoy counting and learning about numbers and shapes.
We are becoming more independent and like to do things for ourselves, such as using scissors to cut out.
We are learning about letters and sounds and are beginning to recognise letters in the environment.
We are very good at counting real objects and understand the difference between more and less.
Next week, we are learning about Owls and nocturnal animals.
