Creative mathematicians

This week in reception we have been learning how to count out a given number of objects from a large group.

Today we had lots of fun counting out sweets to make delicious biscuits. We needed to use our skills to follow the instructions, recognise the numbers and count from a large group.


Miss Hilliard said that we really impressed her!

We have had lots of fun in Reception celebrating Diwali! We read the Diwali story about Rama and Sita and enjoyed drawing Rangoli patterns. On Friday we even tried some Indian food which was yummy! We would like to know which food did you enjoy the most and why?
