Welcome back!

June 7th, 2017

We hope you all had a lovely half term and it was lovely to see you all back on Monday.

This half term our topic is ‘Our Wonderful World’. Within this topic we will be exploring the world around us, how to keep the world a clean place and how to look after our world.

During this half term we will be going on a school trip to ‘Fairburn Ings’ in Castleford. We will be pond dipping, exploring the woods and the habitats of animals and exploring a range of plants and trees.

We will be handing out the letter at some point this week to give you the information you need for the trip.

If you have any further questions then please come and ask your child’s class teacher.

Thank you.

Reception team.

Tadpole’s Promise

Over the past 2 weeks we have been reading the key text ‘Tadpole’s Promise’ and we have been talking about the characters feelings from the story and writing sentences to describe them.
We have been looking at the life cycle of a frog and a butterfly and describing the changes that occur.
On Monday our own class caterpillars arrived at school and we have been observing them ready to see them make a cocoon and finally grow into butterflies!
