Reception Bulletin w/c 20th May

Posted on


Week Commencing 20th May


This week we will be learning the nk consonant blends as in bank and junk. Geraldine and Mr Thorne can help the children’s learning of this blend in the video below:

If the children would like to each bring a small nk object (labelled with their name if they want it back) or a story about a bank, a tank or even some junk, the teachers would love to share them with the class.

The tricky word we will be learning is, out.


In Maths we will be learning about subtracting by counting backwards.  The most useful activity to prepare for this is practising counting backwards from 20 – 0. Popping the balloons in the correct order at Balloon Count Game is a fun way to practise this.


In topic we are coming to the end of our learning about keeping in touch. To make sure we are looking at up-to-date methods of communicating we will be using webcams in class this week!
