What an amazing start to Reception! We have settled so well and are happy to come to school, which is a great start to our school life here at Ainslie Wood.


We have experienced so many amazing and exciting things this half term! We have read loads of books including 'Elmer', where we looked at how beautiful it is that we are all different; 'Coming to England', when we explored the difference between England and Trinidad and we even had afternoon tea with the Queen! We also read 'Giraffe's can't dance' and had our very own jungle party! 


In Maths, we have been exploring the numbers 1-10, practising number formation, subitising and counting an amounts. We have explored colour and shape patterns and have practised creating our own patterns using cubes. We have also explored different types of measurement (capacity and weight) and have made some interesting predictions. Additionally, we have used our knowledge of shapes to name and describe a wide variety of 2D shapes. We can name most 2D shapes and are beginning to understand some of their properties.


We have made lots of new friends this half term and are already excellent learners! We can't wait for all the fun that is coming next half term!
