Reception News: 8th February 2018

8th February 2018
Star of the Week:  Hazel
Mathematician of the Week:  Brooklyn
Writer of the Week:  Evie
Values Champion:  Neive
LITERACY:  We are continuing to work on our pirate theme and are producing some lovely writing, applying our phonic knowledge.
PHONICS:  We are learning the 'oo' sound and how it can make 2 sounds (like in 'book' and 'boot').  We have also been learning the 'ar' and 'or' sounds and looking at tricky words.
MATHS:  We have been learning about subtraction, starting with 'one less'.  We have been using objects around the classroom and are starting to solve subtraction problems.
We still need more cardboard kitchen rolls for the children to transform into telescopes!  Please donate any that you have so our pirates can take them on their treasure hunt!
