Welcome to our learning in Reception - Summer 1


The sun is shining at the start of an exciting term in Reception!  We are all looking forward to enjoying brighter, longer, and warmer days over the coming months.  We are also looking forward to starting our own weekly run in the Pleasaunce on Fridays – in between the reading workshops and food tasting.  What a fantastic way to end the week!


This term our topic will be solely child-led, and will change depending on what the children are showing interests in.  We are beginning by looking at fairytales; we are reading some traditional stories, talking about the features of a fairytale, and will use story arcs and mountains to write our own – making sure we have a beginning, middle, and an end.

In Numeracy we will be learning to measure, and to estimate measurements, using unifix cubes and rulers.  We will also be reviewing addition, subtraction, and shape.

PE will still be based around Real PE and will often tie in with our weekly topics.

In Science we have had the exciting experience of seeing caterpillars turn into chrysalises, and then into butterflies, which were released back into the wild in Gravesend over the Easter break.  We have also been thrilled to see the bulbs we planted earlier in the  year growing and opening into beautiful flowers!

Owen had a little lamb, its fleece was white as snow, and everywhere that Owen went the lamb was sure to go - it followed him to school one day... Which certainly made the children - and adults! - laugh! Big thanks to Owen and Eve for bringing in your lovely lamb
