Since our topic is 'Ticket to Ride', our class book this week is 'Up and Down the Andes' and Reception have been looking at the cultures of Spanish speaking countries. They tried some Spanish foods; some children wanted to tell everyone about their food tasting and teach St Williams about Spanish food. They came up with lots of describing words and sentences using their Phonics knowledge. Here is some of the wonderful writing they have done this week about their experiences.
Jessica: "We tasted Spanish food. I ate Spanish bread. My bread was crunchy and yummy."
Lewis: "I had one piece of bread and it was yummy and it was smooth."
Lucy: "All the Reception children had Spanish food and some didn't like it and I tried the Spanish bread. My friend Ava liked the bread. I did not like it because it was slimy."
Today, we peformed a great performance. In the lesson, we started of by doing exercises and later got into our group and prepared our routines. After many minutes of hardwork we came to a close of rehearsing and performed to the rest of the class.
