Growing Together To Be Our Best


September 2017

We have had a fantastic first week in Reception this week and have put together a little first week of school video for you to see how much fun we've been having.

Data handling in Reception.


This week we've been doing lots of work on data handling.

We started off by creating a tally chart to record the information that we found out.

Next we asked our friends what pets they have at home.

Finally we transferred this information into a pictogram. What amazing work!

A visit from Larry the Leprechaun

Larry the Leprechaun visited Reception asking for our help. Due to the gloomy January weather the Leprechauns haven't been able to collect enough colours to make their rainbows. He left us some rainbow activities to do to help him to make a rainbow again.

Little Big Maths

This is the rhyme that we use to help us to learn our doubles.

Double 1 is 222
Go to the loo loo loo

Double 2 is 444
Knock knock knock on the scary door

Double 3 is 666
Watch how our maths goes click click click

Double 4 is 888
Run run run to the school gate

We have a weekly Big Maths test. So any help at home that you can give us with our doubles will be beneficial
