Click here to find out about this week's learning in Reception! 

Week beginning 10th July 2023

Reception’s exciting week began with a visit from a huge tyrannosaurus-rex! We loved searching through the sand for fossils with tools to reveal and discover different dinosaurs like real paleontologists.

We created our own mini dinosaur story books to try our hands at being authors. We have also been reflecting on our favourite memories of Reception and writing about them in our English books.

In maths this week, we have been problem-solving and using our knowledge of doubles, number bonds and one more, one less to help find the answer.

During free learning, we have been busy creating our own dinosaurs from paper straws and matching parts of the skeleton. We are now getting excited to visit Year One and meet our class teacher for next year!
