Well take a look at some of Reception's work from week beginning Monday 1st June.

We wrote instructions for handwashing and practised using the correct words to compare measurements. Great job Reception!

This is our work from the week beginning Monday 18th May.

We've been busy keeping up with our phonics, practising counting in 2's and finding odd and even numbers. We've also made some splendid story maps and sentences based on the tale of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

Wow! What a brilliant week we've had. We've been story telling, practising our sounds and tricky words, writing sentences as well as doubling, halving and using teen numbers. Phew! Lots of great work being sent in from our amazing reception children.

Week beginning Monday 11th May

Home Project

We’d also love the children to create a mini-project entitled ‘All About Me!’  This could be a collection of drawings, photographs, magazine cuttings, small items, leaflets etc placed into a cardboard box or scrapbook.  Your child could choose things that they can talk about that reflect themselves such as

  • Family members - birthdays/weddings/special celebrations
  • Items they had when they were a baby/toddler
  • Their favourite toys, colours, tv/cartoon characters, foods.
  • Special places they visit in the local area.

It would be wonderful to see the children sharing these with their teachers and friends. It will be fun for them to learn more about each other as individuals.
