Reception Inkpen and McKee

Summer Term

 

In the Summer Term, Reception have been learning about growing, changing and journeys. 

In Literacy, we have been learning to order and sequence familiar stories, create shopping lists and write words and sentences. In Maths, we have been learning to combine different amounts to make a given number and developing our understanding of simple addition and subtraction. 

We have also enjoyed taking part if lots of activities for Sports Week including body boards, gymnastics, Sports Day and making fruit kebabs!

What we have been learning in Autumn Two 

 

This half term Reception have been learning about different Festivals. The children have enjoyed learning about the Hindu festival Diwali and have been busy making their own Diya lamps and Rangoli patterns. The children have also enjoyed retelling the Christmas Nativity story and learning some festive Christmas songs. In Literacy, we have been using our phonic knowledge to read and write the initial sounds in words. In Maths we have been learning how to recognise familiar patterns to subitise and noticing when the patterns are the same and different. We have also been learning to touch a small set of mixed objects one at a time and rehearse the number names in the correct order.

Poppy Printing 

 

Reception McKee have been potato printing poppies for remembrance day, celebrating the soldiers that fought in the war. These look wonderful, well done Reception McKee.

What we have been learning in Autumn One 

 

This half term Reception have been settling into their new classes, learning new routines and building relationships with peers and class staff. The children have explored their new classroom, engaging well with the different areas and learning where to find resources. We have begun daily phonics and Maths sessions. In Phonics we have been learning a new sound each day, practising how to form letters correctly and developing our blending skills. In Maths we have been learning to sort objects, order by size and identify items or quantities that are the same and different.

 

The children's favourite learning experiences this half term include using the iPads to play counting games, using the bikes outside and learning to climb and balance on the apparatus in P.E.
