In Maths this week Reception have been learning about halving shapes. They investigated how they could halve some basic 2D shapes using their scissors to cut them. They were surprised to find that some shapes could be halved in more than one way.
This week at Phunky Fit club we made a fruit salad. We enjoyed tasting different fruits then chose our favourites to put in our own fruit salad. We learned how to use the knives safely to cut each fruit.
This week in Art and Craft Club the Reception children decorated masks using a variety of materials.
At the first art and craft club of the half term, Reception children made a rosette for their dads to celebrate the upcoming Father’s Day.

Today we released our butterflies after four weeks of nurturing them from baby caterpillars to cocoons then finally to butterflies. We have learned so much from watching them grow, develop and change.
After nearly four weeks of waiting, the first butterflies emerged from their cocoons today. The children were full of awe and wonder at what they saw. They can’t wait for the rest of the butterflies to emerge over the coming days.
Reception went to visit Strudda Farm to learn about the different animals on the farm and where our food comes from. The children used their senses to explore different grains and foods before using them to make cow sandwiches. They went in the trailer to see them being fed to the cows in the…
