The latest Reception Learning Update!

In Literacy, we are practising reading words containing known sounds that we have already covered in phonics. Children will get the chance to practise writing simple sentences too.

In Maths, the children will explore a range of circles and triangles in different sizes and orientations. The children will go on to describe what they notice about the shapes and will be given the opportunity to go on a shape hunt.

In our PSED we are exploring the concept of friendships. The children will discuss what makes a good friend. How to be a good friend. These discussions will also coincide with our anti-bullying week at Stockwell.
