Reception thoroughly enjoyed their end of year trip to the Lake District Wildlife Park. They enjoyed learning about all the animals. They especially enjoyed cuddling guinea pigs, watching a bird of prey display and stroking the bearded dragon and the snake.
Mrs Robson and Mrs Bond had a wonderful afternoon meeting their new class for September. We enjoyed Circle Time sharing fun facts about ourselves. Then we created some Art work for our new classroom. We can’t wait to spend more time together when you are in Year One.…
Reception had great fun making and testing their pirate boats this week. They had to think about how to make the boats, the materials they would need and whether the materials were waterproof or not. All of them were waterproof although some of them did capsize.
Reception ran really well at the running tournament this morning.
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 Reception have been exploring the school grounds to look for minibeasts. They used their observation skills to identify what they found.
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.
