  • Number 3

    We have had another fantastic week in Reception. Phonics has been going well and this week we looked at ck, e, u and r. 

    In maths we have been learning about the number 3 and the children have been working out all of the different ways to show it. They have had a great time looking for 3 in the environment as well, finding it in lots of different places. We carried the theme of 3 into our PE and each activity was linked to it.

    The children have been brilliant this half-term and have settled in well. We hope you all have a lovely half-term.
