Click here for more information about Reception's week!

Week beginning 6th March 2023

This week, the children have been busy learning and practising their number bonds to ten. We have used ten frames, Numberblocks stories, Numicon shapes, rainbows etc to practise finding two numbers that make ten. We have even been writing number sentences using + and = to show our number bond knowledge!

We have continued our topic of real life superheroes this week, and the children were fascinated to learn about a real life superhero from the past - Mary Fields - who was the first black postwoman in America. The children couldn't believe that she had to use a horse and cart to deliver the post! We created a giant postbox and wrote letters and messages to each other. 

We were also very lucky to have another visitor tell us about their important job. Mr Parker, who is an optician, came in to talk to us about how he helps people look after their eyes. 


We have read these new books this week: 

A Superhero Like You : Singh, Dr. Ranj, Darcy, Liam: Books  A Superpower Like Mine, Singh, Dr. Ranj, Used; Good Book 1444965069 | eBay
