In Reception we have enjoyed welcoming in Spring!

Our topic this half term has been growth and change. We learnt the key features of animals and where they live. We made 3D models of our favourite animal and painted a picture of them which is on display in the corridor. We are now learning about the life cycle of plants and labelling parts of the plant. We have looked closely at daffodils and painted a picture of them.  Also, we have enjoyed playing in our Vets role play area.

We took part in World Book Day and read the children’s books throughout the day. We were lucky enough to have a visit from Year 3 that came in to read stories to us.

We enjoyed taking part in the NSPCC Maths number day, Click the link to view the news post.

In our number lessons we have been continuing to consolidate our recognition and ordering of numbers 1 – 20 and introduced a new topic of doubling and halving.

We are looking forward to learning about Easter and completing fun Easter activities!

In literacy we have been continuing our big book sessions and reading books related to Spring and animals. The past few weeks we have read the traditional tale of Jack and the Beanstalk and the children have been very enthusiastic re telling the story in the continuous provision areas of the classroom and using the writing table to write labels and captions to label and describe the characters in the story. We will continue to use our phase 2 and 3 phonics knowledge to practise sentence writing.
