We Completely Must Go to London

Can you tell us about somewhere you have visited in London?

This week the Reception children have been learning about landmarks around London. We read the book 'We Completely Must Go to London' by Lauren Childs, and joined Charlie and Lola as they went with their classmates to see Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, The London Eye, Nelson's Column in Trafalgar Square and other places.  We have been building landmarks outside and creating a river, so we could build Tower Bridge over it. Some children have drawn pictures of places that they saw in the book or might have visited, such as the London Eye or the Tower of London. In maths, we have been learning about Spacial Reasoning. The children were using their reasoning to skills to work out why a shape might be the odd one out in a group or explaining what shape was missing in a picture and choosing the correct one to fill the space. All of this is a good grounding for completing jigsaw puzzles and making tessellations - which they will be doing next week!

We have been busy making bunting for the Coronation Celebrations on Friday afternoon. We have talked about the Coronation and some of the children know they will be having street parties at the weekend. We will be learning about the Coronation in more depth next week, when the children will have had a chance to experience the celebrations.
