In our phonics sessions, we have been learning about digraphs – two letters that make one sound.  We have focused on sh, ch and th, and had fun sorting objects into three hoops, listening for the initial sounds.  In mathematics, we have been learning to tell the time.  We concentrated on ‘o’ clock using both analogue and digital clocks, the children had opportunities to read and record the time. We have also been thinking about different times of the year when discussing the seasons of the year. We were very pleased with the way the children approached this task and we are sure they will impress you with their knowledge this weekend.

Reception elves have been busy in Santa’s workshop in the classroom, building and wrapping presents. They have also enjoyed writing letters at our Christmas Post Office and sorting by size, shape and colour at the Christmas tuff spot.
