This week the children in Reception have been settling into the routines and expectations of 'big school'. They have successfully tackled lunches in the main hall, making choices, making new friends and continuing to explore the our amazing Reception facilities! In Phonics they have focussed on environmental sounds and honing their listening skills by naming sounds they hear at home, outside and at the zoo. In maths we have been looking closely at images and objects and then matching those that have similar properties or are the same. Out topic this week has been based around the book 'Walking Through The Jungle'. The children have enjoyed retelling the story through actions and sounds.
