Reception’s First Week!

Reception had a wonderful first week at school – enjoying settling into new routines, exploring our classroom and making new friends. We also began to learn new sounds such as ‘s, a, t, p, I, n’ and we did a fantastic job at recognising these sounds at the beginning of words. We also explored numbers, seeing if we could order them – recognising ‘1 more’ and ‘1 less.’ Take a look at how much fun we had!
