The Bog Baby in Reception

What a wonderful week we had based around the story of 'The Bog Baby' which is all about children taking a creature out of the pond and taking it home with them. Unfortunately the Bog Baby begins to get poorly and the children must return him to the pond. Our whole week was based around the story and some wonderful learning took place. We were especially impressed with the standard of writing this week.Well done Reception!

The growing continues!

We have been planting sunflowers, cress, carrots and runner beans! We have also kept a close eye on our broad beans and have been comparing how tall they have got with each other. We even had a go at using the ruler to measure how many cm tall they are as a follow up activity of using cubes to measure footprints last week!

Our week in Reception

This term is all about 'The Great Outdoors'. There will be out Summer Newsletter following very soon! We have begun learning all about planting and growing in Reception. We have been reading stories which involve the life cycle of plants and have followed instructions to plant our own beans. We are excited to watch them grow over the next couple of weeks. We are also planting other seeds such as sunflowers and cress. In our outdoor area we are continuing to build our bug hotel, plant and weed and lots of other exciting outdoor learning! We have been measuring Giant's footprints, sharing beans into pots, story telling different stories and creating our own story maps and lots more. We are excited for a fun filled term!

This week in Reception

This week we are learning all about the Easter Story and why we celebrate it. Challenge your child to tell you the story using words such as first, next and finally. We are focussing on using these words more often in our writing next term. We have lots of exciting learning this week involving eggs and chocolate! We will be sorting and sharing eggs to make it fair and recording our thinking using our growing number skills. We will be writing sentences and sequencing pictures to retell the story of Easter. In the afternoons we are melting chocolate to make Easter nests, creating wonderful Easter cards for our family, sequencing the life cycle of a chick and lots more! The children will also be using the skills they acquired last week in ICT to navigate our new Beebots around the classroom! We wish you all a very happy time together at Easter and will see you back after the holidays. How you can help at home this week and in the holidays... 10 minutes daily reading Practise reading and spelling of the tricky words sent home as well as all of the sounds. Keep a holiday diary of exciting things you get up to at Easter time. Go on an Easter Egg hunt and count out how many eggs you can find. Encourage your child to group the eggs into 2's and see if they can count them in 2's too! Most importantly - have fun!




Our bug hotel

Reception have been making their own bug hotel. They have filled containers with all of the things to keep bugs warm and busy and added them to the hotel. We are excited to see which bugs will come to stay!
