  • Doubling, Recycling and Singing!

    Published 26/03/21

    This week Reception have been working on their doubling and subtraction number sentences. The children used mirrors to help them visualise the answer. We found out about the importance of recycling and looked at the three R's - reduce, reuse and recycle. We had fun looking at some of the different materials that could be recycled and sorted objects into different categories based on this. Reception have had a brilliant time working on some Spring songs and are looking forward to performing on Monday 29th (Squirrels), Tuesday 30th (Dormice) and Wednesday 31st (Rabbits) at 2:30pm.
