Welcome back after our Easter Break. Another busy week fitting everything in. 

This week we have looked at the number 12, different ways we make twelve and also started to look at sharing.

In literacy we have drawn story maps of our story Little Red Riding hood in preparation for our exciting visit to the Rainbow factory.

The children were very excited about going on our school trip. I'm sure they have spoken to you about all the fun things we got up to so I will just share some of the photos with you.

summer 1 week 1

Anna Head (a.head) on: Reception Blog

Welcome back after the holidays, hope you have had a lovely break.

We have had a busy first week back trying to fit in everything into 4 days.

We have been doing lots of Easter activities, matching number bonds on eggs, finding words in eggs and matching to pictures, decorating egg pictures and outside doing some egg and spoon races.

In maths we have recapped number 11 also adding and taking away on a number line.

We have started to look at traditional tales with the children in time for our trip to the rainbow factory next week.

This week we also have taken delivery of some new toys, the PTA has generously donated some funds for us to buy new equipment. Our vocab word has been responsible and we have used this because we need them to look after these as they cost a lot of money.



Thursday we had our sponsored danceathon where we had lots of fun dancing at various times in the day.


Things to think about:

We desperately need more people on our PTA, this way we can continue to raise funds to keep getting fantastic resources for our children to use. You don't have to go to every meeting or need any special skills just being able to give a few hours of your time is ideal.

We have our trip to the rainbow factory next Thursday, please make sure you have given your consent and paid on parent pay or your child wont be able to go.

Have a fantastic Easter weekend and we will see you all back in school on Tuesday.

many thanks the Reception team

We used socks outside to measure too.

Spring 2 ,week 1

Anna Head (a.head) on: Reception Blog

Welcome back after the half term break. Thank you very much for sharing your homework we have enjoyed sharing with each other what you have been doing and the signs of spring.  We have been painting pictures of daffodils that we have looked at in class.


Our number this week has been 9. We have looked at how we make 9 and the different number sentences we can put together. We also looked at where 9 is on the number line and other facts we know about 9.

Our story is Supertato. We have designed and made, using the junk modelling, our own superheroes and also described superheroes. Can you ask your child all about the story, what the characters are in the story, where the story is set.


We are continuing to work hard on our reading and writing. Please continue to read at home with your child and any handwriting things you can do to help.

Look out for other exciting things we will be doing in the next few weeks
