This Week’s Learning

Thank you so much to all the parents that came to the Come and Be Nosy session, the children really enjoyed showing all the resources and activities related to maths.

We also had lots of fun making part, part, whole model machines, using fruit, bricks and even ourselves. You can watch the fruit salad machine episode from number blocks on Youtube.

Thank you for all the fantastic show and tell objects from home, we have learnt so much from each other about planets, the solar system, telescopes, how we get to the moon and what astronauts wear. Fantastic knowledge and understanding!

In PE we were really good at following instructions to make sure we used the equipment safely. We learnt how to climb up and jump down from the horse, you must land on two feet and bend your knees.

Next Week’s Learning

Next week we will be reading the story of Bob the Man on the Moon.

We are working on retelling the story and writing our own stories.

In Maths we are working on addition problems and using mathematical language to solve number problems. We are thinking of our own ways to record our answers.

In PE we are developing our gross motor skills and using the equipment to climb up and jump down in different ways.


Welcome back, we hope you had a lovely holiday and Happy New Year to everyone!

Our topic for this half term is Space.

 Please remember to write in the purple book when you have read with your child, they are all making such fantastic progress, thank you for your support.

Don’t forget our come and be nosy session is on Tuesday morning. Sign in at the front office and Miss Maxey will meet you in the hall.

Have a great weekend

The Reception Team.
