Helping Captain Conjecture

User Rating:  / 2

In Maths, Reception have been helping Captain Conjecture. Captain Conjecture uses his powers to make clever guesses based on things he notices and what he already knows. He asks us questions and helps us explain our answers and understanding. We have enjoyed Captain Conjecture asking us questions about numbers and counting. We have enjoyed investigating the Numicon shapes.

Reception have had another great week in school! We have looked at colour and thought about all the colours around us. We enjoyed getting all the weeds out of our raised beds and then planeted daffodil bulbs. Hopefully we will see them start to grow in the Spring. We enjoyed dancing in PE and in Maths we counted out different amounts of objects and matched them to the correct Numicon piece.
