Ants, Assemblies and Sports Day

What a busy week we've had in Reception! To start with, we did some in-depth study of ants, those amazing superorganisms - did you know they live everywhere in the world except Antarctica? We looked at how they live and work, and learnt about their life-cycles.  In phonics, we are practising longer words in phonics, focusing on the endings in particular, so we are getting very good at writing 'bees' not 'beez' and 'painted' instead of 'paintid'! In maths we are starting to learn about 'sharing' amounts, and we can practise this in our play by sharing out food in pretend picnics. As well as all this, we have been enjoying all the Reception assemblies (they were so good!) and practising hard for Sports Day.  We will be tired this weekend!
