This week in Reception we have been learning about lists. We began by reading the story ‘Pumpkin Soup’ and even made our own soup! We then made a list of the ingredients that we used, remembering to put each ingredient on a new line and using our phonic knowledge to hear the sounds that we needed to write. So next time we’re feeling hungry, we’ll know what to put in our soup!
This half term in Reception our focus text is ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’.
So far the children have listened to the story and practised retelling it, ordered pictures showing the story events and drawn their favourite part. Over the coming weeks they will be identifying and describing the characters and settings. They are also learning the key features of texts, such as title, author, text and illustration.
