Lovely Learning in Reception

Stars of the Week: Isabelle and Oscar

Reception have produced some great work this week, it’s been a busy week with starting the Nativity and fitting in all our learning! In maths, we have been looking at 1 more and 1 less of numbers to 10, children enjoyed using their number line to find their answers. We looked at some tricky words this week in English and children had a great go at writing these words into a sentence. Well done on another super week Reception!

Autumn 2 Week 2- Transport Walk!

Stars of the Week: Ben and Paraskevi

Reception have had another great week at school! This week we have been super busy with our autumn writing, learning about capacity in maths and looking at transport, which is our new topic this half term. On Wednesday, we went on a local walk around our school to spot different forms of transport, it was very fun and children ticked off all the different modes of transport they came across! Take a look at the pictures below from our walk!

Reception have worked very hard on their learning this week. In RE, the class learnt all about the Bible story of Jesus feeding the 5000! Children then used role play to imagine they were there when Jesus fed fish and bread to all the people who came to listen to him. In Maths this week, we have looked at 2D shape patterns and children have produced some lovely pieces of work. Good job on another great week Reception!
