Welcome to/ Croeso i Reception

 Welcome to the Reception SW Learning Log

We hope you will find this page a useful point of contact to find out what we have been doing in school over the past week.  Please check it every Friday afternoon when it is updated.  We will also post other information which may be of use to you.


Week 2-Spring Term

Friday 18th January


This week we have been busy making things for our castle role-play area.  The children have designed banners, bunting, as well as making a bakery to sell bread and cakes.  From this some children designed posters and price lists.  My Time activities have involved writing numbers in order to at least 10, cutting and sticking, as well as programming the Beebot robot.


In Maths we have been recognising numbers, counting forwards and backwards from different starting points and counting in 2s and 10s.  We have been estimating how many and counting items reliably.  We have also been using the language of small, medium and large.  This week the children have also been learning about ordinal numbers from 1st to 10th.


In P.E. the children had lots of fun using large apparatus to develop balance and control their body movements.  They thought about how to move around the apparatus safely.


In Forest School we are investigating the affect seasons have on animals and plants.  This week we have been looking around Forest School for signs of winter.  It was very cold, so we did the Daily Mile to warm ourselves up.

Finally just a reminder, please could you send in your child’s yellow reading record on their reading day every week.  Thank you.

Thank you for your continued support
