RECEPTION

Welcome to Reception!

This week the children have been taken part in lots of mathematical activities. They have been on a shape hunt in and around the classroom and created pictures of their homes using 2D shapes. We have been practising finding out 1 more or 1 less than, using different objects. We have also practised ordering and recognising numbers from 1-10 and 1-20. We will continue many of these activities after half term to reinforce concepts.

After half term for the first week, we will be looking at all the different signs of Autumn. We will be looking at our holiday scrap books and writing our holiday news. We will be creating lots of Autumn pictures and will be cooking an Autumn treat!

Our phonic sounds for the week will be  k, u and b.. We will continue to practise these tricky words - the, and, a, said, to,  in, he, I, of, it. We will be introducing the children to their new set of tricky words.

 

We hope you have a lovely weekend!
