This week in Reception we have been getting things prepared for our Story and Pyjama Evening. The children have been writing signs for the evening and making biscuits. We have been concentrating on writing full sentences this week and the children have been spotting (purposeful) mistakes in my writing. For example, I may have missed out finger spaces, capital letters or full stops. We have also been modelling the correct spelling of key words to ensure that children learn these by the end of Reception. In addition, we have been following instructions and recognising that instructions start with an action word (verb).
In maths, we have continued our work on subtraction. The children have been using number lines to complete subtractions and have also been making marks on whiteboards to complete subtractions.
Most children have been subtracting using single digit numbers. Some children have been subtracting using 2 digit numbers and have also started to look at sharing and halving.
Some of the children have reached the end of Phase 3 phonics sounds.Please watch the Jolly Phonics video below with your child to help them remember the sounds. We also encourage children to practise writing the sounds.
Dont forget our Story and Pyjama Evening is this Thursday from 6.15 – 7pm.
We look forward to seeing you on Thursday.
