This week Reception have enjoyed investigating measurments. We looked at length and thought about longest and shortest and investigated who was the tallest and shortest in the class.

Super Sewing

User Rating:  / 2

Reception have enjoyed sewing their own puppets! We used a special plastic needle and thread to sew the two pieces of felt together. We had to carefully pull the thread through the holes, up and down in a running stitch. When we had joined the two pieces of felt together we hen decorated the puppet.
