We have had a very exciting and busy week in Reception thinking about all the sights and sounds at Carnivals. We were impressed with the wonderful hats and costume designs that the children created- they are applying their skills with lots of imagination! We have also been dancing and to Carnival inspired music and creating our own parades. We were pleased to see the way that the children are applying their phonic knowledge to writing CVC words. In Maths we have been ordering numbers from smallest to largest and creating our own number lines. What a busy week!
Next Week: we will continue our Festivals theme by thinking about Weddings.
