Mastery Maths


In maths this year we are using the White Rose Scheme of learning, which looks at each number in more depth before moving onto the next. We have also introduced Number Blocks, which we will link in each time we learn a new number.


You can watch Number Blocks with your child at home by clicking on the following link...

Autumn 1


This term our topic is Traditional Tales, focusing mainly on the story of 'The Gingerbread Man'. The children are already reciting the story off by heart and have had fun making gingerbread playdough and creating story maps in literacy.

Roald Dahl day


All of the Reception children loved celebrating Roald Dahl day. We focused on the story of 'Charlie's Chocolate Factory', writing in chocolate, counting with jelly babies, creating paper plate lollipops and carrying out some skittles science.

Gingerbread men


After becoming so familiar with the story of 'The Gingerbread Man', the children loved getting messy and baking their own gingerbread men biscuits. They strengthened their fingers by stirring and kneading the biscuit dough and finally, once baked, decorated and ate them for afternoon snack.

This led to some brilliant literacy and the children writing up the ingredients which they used.
