Butterfly Symmetry

The children loved using a symmetrical paint program today and made their own symmetrical butterflies by painting one wing and folding it over. They are now flying around green group’s carpet!

Why not have a go at this butterfly symmetry game. If you want, you can print them off and add them to our butterfly collection!

2 more games that we used in ICT today

The children used both the desktop and laptop computers in ICT and found out how to move from window to window to play different games. Here are the two of the three games we played today. I will put the links on the right hand side as well.

Whack a mole

Dinosaur reading


A reminder to reception parents that we are updating your child’s GoogleDocs Learning Journeys as often as possible and there are some lovely examples of their learning on there.

We would love your input about things they are doing at home, skills they are showing and comments on their learning journeys.

When you log in to your account, you should have 2 documents, the school learning journey to view and the home learning journey that you can write on like a word document. If you are having any problems accessing these documents please let us know and we will help sort it out. Thanks!

Remember only you can see your child’s work and only the reception teachers will be able to read anything that you put on your child’s home learning journey.

The link below takes you to the sign-in page or GoogleDocs and there is also a link on the right hand side of the page for future use:

The Gingerbread Man and Little Red Riding Hood

Last week in literacy we looked at the story of the gingerbread man. We used a website to look at the story online. The link to that website below. The children did lots of work on the story and showed that they could sequence the events from the story.
