This week in Reception we have been learning to recognise graphemes 'ai' and 'ee'. We have been blending to read words and sentences containing these sounds. We have also practised segmenting to spell words containing these sounds and have written words, captions, and sentences. Our reading has been lots of fun too and we have been using our reading dogs to read and show understanding of our class text Gran's grin. In maths this week we have been subtracting and represented using ten frames and part whole models. We have had a great Spring term and this half term have been focusing on Spring, new life, and metamorphism. We have listened to lots of stories, each planted a bean and sequenced the life cycle of a caterpillar. Next week we will be learning about farm animals and their babies. Early Years will be collaborating with Madeley High School and will have the exciting opportunity to work with a group of pupils and attend an animal handling session! We also had a visit from Miss Fowler who is a dental nurse to talk to us about how to keep our teeth healthy. She gave us a fun pack with toothpaste, a toothbrush and activities to take home.
