A great start to 2020

This week we have learnt the tricky word ‘he’. The children thought of some sentences including the tricky word, had to find it in some sentences and then practice forming the letters.

The children have been learning ‘qu’ and ‘ch’ this week. They have participated in oral activities and practised letter formation and writing sentences.


During maths we have been looking at the number 0. The children have discussed what zero means and practised representing the numeral.

The children have also been introduced to number bonds. This week we have focused on number bonds to 5. The children have experienced using 5 frames and part whole models to show the number bonds for 5.

A new planter!

We were very generously donated a potato platter by The Outdoor Classroom. The children have been learning about growing vegetables. We are looking forward to planting our potatoes once the weather warms up. As the potatoes grow so will the planter!

Eggs, ice and everything else!

Homework this week is to practise forming numbers to 20. The child may like to go on a hunt to find numbers in their environment and copy them or simply practise copying over the sheet provided.

We hope you have a fantastic weekend,

The Reception Team
