The Naughty Bus has been providing the Reception children with many wonderful ways in which to learn about transport as our main topic for the spring term continues. We recently combined this literacy work with our maths learning. We took the children out in small groups along the Walworth Road on a bus hunt. We introduced the idea of a tally chart, and then counted how many busses we could see.
Our literacy work connected with The Naughty Bus is all about the different locations where the bus is able to travel. As the title suggests, this is an incredibly mischievous bus that finds himself in some strange locations!
The Reception children have created a class display showing the bus by the seaside, at Disneyland or even in space. We have labeled these pictures with a short description for each location.
We also have a large red bus display on the Reception class wall. Some of the pupils have drawn their own portraits, and then placed these sitting inside the bus.
