Reception - Inkpen & McKee

What we have been up to – Autumn 1

This half term McKee have really enjoyed their phonics lessons where they have been learning to read and write the initial sounds. Their favourite part of this half term was defiantly the tea party where parents were invited in to see our classroom and have sandwiches and biscuits with us. Lots of parents came and pupils loved showing off the different areas of their classroom.

Pupils are now looking forward to next half term where they will be learning all about the circus.

What we have been up to – Autumn 1

This half term Reception Inkpen have enjoyed getting to know our new school, teachers and making new friends. In phonics we have been learning how to read and write sounds and begun to have a go at reading simple words. We have been working very hard on name writing and lots of us are very proud that we can now write our names independently! In Maths we have been learning to name and describe 2D shapes. We have been learning to count, recognise numerals and match numeral to quantity. 


Our favourite things from this half term have been learning about number through Ten Town and when our families joined us for Afternoon Tea.
