Phew there are some worn out Super Heroes in Reception Class! We have been so busy going on problem solving missions. In maths we have had to find lots of different ways of making numbers and we have had to sharpen up our number spotting 'vision'. We had to do lots of ordering of numbers to solve problems too.
We acted out lots of missions and then used them as ideas for super stories which we photographed and made into comics. We really enjoyed starring in them and have been writing captions on them too. We have also had to read lots of secret messages made with invisible ink, or hidden, to solve clues and save people (or cats).
In phonics, we have been learning super sounds! These are two letters that make one sound together and they are particularly useful for making up super comic words like; Woosh, Thwack and Kaboom!

What a wonderful trip to Morrisons we had on Thursday morning!
We tried several Italian foods such as fresh Ciabatta with olive oil and fresh basil leaves, various cold pastas, Italian meats and cheeses including a blue cheese.
We tried Italian olives and Greek olives to compare them to.
The butchery department talked the children through the process of making minced beef, used for bolognaise and demonstrated making fresh burgers too.
Our children were also luckily enough to look at and touch various fresh fish including a squid! We have since tasted some cooked octopus in school which got very mixed reviews!
In school we learnt about how olive oil is made and we visited the oils aisle to look at the various choices on offer.
Morrisons provided cookies and a drink each in the café to conclude our visit which the children (and adults) really enjoyed.
