Reception Learning


Pattern Making:
Reception have been looking at how different patterns are made and can carry on a pattern that uses different colours and shapes.

Subtraction Number Sentences:
The children have been using their knowledge of addition and subtraction to write their own number sentences.


Independent Writing:
The children have been practising their phonics and sounds and have used their learning towrite independently.

Letter to Santa:
The children have been writing letters to Santa to tell him what they would like for Christmas. They have been using the sounds that they are learning in their phonics lessons to help them with their spelling and some are starting to use a full stop to mark the end of a sentence. The children walked to the postbox to send their letters to Santa!
