Summer 1- Week 4

Date: 7th May 2024 @ 4:00pm

Hi everyone,

We have had another fabulous week in Reception!

We started off the week with a surprise visit from an astronaut named Mr McDonell! He told us about his space travels and the Solar System's eight planets, and he even brought us a gift for the classroom. We were fascinated! Throughout the week, we spent time reading non-ficition books about Space, used research skills to create fact files about the planets, and constructed papier mache replicas of the Solar System.

In phonics, we practiced reading nonsense words, writing Level 3 tricky words, and developing our independence to write longer words. We are so proud of you, children!

In maths, we practised counting beyond 20 and deepened our understanding of addition.

Finally, we said goodbye to Miss Woods, who had been with us for ten weeks training to be a primary school teacher. We will miss her. 

We hope that you have a lovely weekend,

The Reception Team
