This week has been another busy time in reception. We have been looking at ‘Marvellous Me’ – thank you to all the parents who sent in a family photo, the children have really enjoyed looking at them with us, and talking about what makes them and their families unique, as well as what we all have in common. We have discussed our key value of ‘belonging’, and the children are beginning to recognise all of the different groups they belong to – from immediate and wider family to class, reception and the whole school.
This week we also started our WRI phonics sessions. We have learnt M, A, S, D and T already, and are doing a great job of writing the letters on our whiteboards.
In Maths, we have been looking at the numbers 1-5 in detail this week, as well as working on our number recognition and formation.
We have also really been enjoying the outdoor area – despite the rainy weather! The children made an obstacle course and had a brilliant time taking turns to go across it. It was fantastic to see their confidence and independence improve each time they completed the course!
