Reception Mathematicians

Sunday 13 March 2022

Last week the children demonstrated a fantastic understanding of number through a range of activities. They used the language more, less and fewer to compare numbers and sets of objects.

This week the focus will be consolidating their understanding of the composition of numbers.  Composing and de-composing numbers involves the children investigating part–part–whole relations, e.g. seeing that 7 can be made of 5 and 2. The children will deepen their understanding of a whole being made up of smaller parts through games and practical experiences.


It has been wonderful to see the children enjoy writing and having the confidence to ‘have a go’.


The children are really enjoying their reading practise sessions. I hope you are impressed with their fluency and confidence when reading their e book.
