The children in Acorns, Sunflowers and Pumpkins have shown a real love for learning this week and they have really impressed their teachers… well done everyone in Reception!
We have been thinking about how we have changed from when we were babies this week and considering all the things that we can now do. We looked at the different animal families in the story book and then talked about our own families, the children used clear, audible voices to share their ideas with the class- well done! The children have been very busy completing their rainbow challenges. The Yellow challenge has been particularly popular across the three classes with the children WOWing their teachers with their amazing, independent writing. The children also worked hard to create their own number lines, they were challenged to make sure all the numbers were correctly formed and in order. What a very busy week!
