As part of Reception’s learning they do sub- topics or activities which help them maintain basics skills. These are some of the most popular ones which I will tell you about now.

In I.C.T, Reception have been learning how to control Bee-Bots, which are small robots decorated as bees or ladybirds that move once given a code. The children program the Bee-Bot to go in a certain direction on a plastic mat.

Reception have also been taking part in a Year 3 reading lesson where the Year 3’s read a simple book with the Reception children. Most of the school participate in this program.

Thirdly, Reception and nursery have a specific station called the Mud Kitchen. This is where the children can create recipes, mix and measure items or ingredients, and ‘cook’ things.

In their classroom, Reception have a shop where they can ‘buy’ certain things for an amount of money, which helps them with number sentences like 10p + 20p = 30p.
