Learning in Reception this week

Thursday 22nd November | 2 comments

This week the children have been trying to recognise all the tricky words they have learnt so far – I, to, no, the, go. We have practised reading them playing the ‘Phase 2 Tricky Word truck game’ in Phonics Play. – https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/. There are also lots of other phoneme flashcard games that the children love to play. The children enjoyed seeing if they could beat their time. We have also learnt the ‘l’ phoneme as well as ‘ll’.

The children have tried really hard blending words which start with l like lip, log, lap. It is hard for some children to blend to hear the initial sound of l in words. We looked at words which have ll. We are trying hard to remember that we only say the sound once even though there are 2 ll.


In Maths this week we have continued to learn about the calculation add. The children are becoming more confident adding 2 numbers together to find the total. Ask your child to show you the addition and equals signs using their arms. We have used a ten frame and a dice to make our own calculations. We are continuing to practise putting the biggest number in our head and counting on.

Maths Workshop

We look forward to seeing you all at the workshop at 2.30pm today (Thursday 22nd November) or this evening at 6-6.30pm. If you are unable to attend please let us know and we will go through the areas we discussed.
