Reception - Number… | Independent Primary School Buckinghamshire

Reception - Number bonds, brilliant performances and beanstalks

This week of lockdown learning in Reception has continued to be a busy one - full of big smiles and lots of new knowledge! On Monday, both classes spent time discussing our highlight of the weekend... the snow! Photos of snowmen, sledging and slippery hills were all shared within classes and some fabulous memories were reminisced on.

For the rest of the week in English, we have been looking at the classic tale of ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. We spent time ordering the key events of the story and using adjectives to describe the characters so that next week we can begin to innovate and create our own versions of the story.

In Maths, we have been continuing to focus on our number bonds to 10 and have been developing our understanding of the concepts of ‘lesser’ and ‘more’. We have been experimenting with tens frames and different combinations of numbers to make 10 and comparing different groups of objects.

Our afternoons are a time for creativity, time was spent in Art making fabulous pieces inspired by Mexican Folk Art and in Topic the children created some brilliant puppets and performed an array of puppet shows. We looked at string instruments in music, pets in French and built dens during Forest School time.

Well done for another brilliant week, all!
