Welcome to Reception!

 

This half term our topic is “Superheroes!” The children have been talking about the special powers they would like to have and also the talents they already have.

The children have also been very creative, making superhero masks, a junk model city and super gadgets and traps!

The children have also begun their daily phonics sessions and are already beginning to read and spell simple 3 letter words. They have been learning about number and quantity during maths and have shown lots of enthusiasm in their learning challenges!
