Every day in Reception, we take part in lots and lots of fun activities to develop our understanding of number. Some of these activities are planned, whole class sessions; some are small group teaching sessions and others are child initiated activities which are promoted to the children and then left out for them to explore in their own way.

Below are some photographs of our Reception girls and boys exploring number and shape both inside and outside the classroom.
