Welcome back!

Welcome back to the Summer term, we hope you all had a lovely Easter and a nice break.

This half term we are learning about the Life Cycles of a frog and a butterfly. Alongside this we will be reading lots of fiction and non-fiction books such as Tadpoles Promise and Bog baby.
We will be using our imagination to explore our class garden centre and using our creative area to paint, construct and explore.
In Maths, we will be learning to sequence events, tell the time and say 1 more and 1 less than a given number.
There will also be lots of problem solving and challenges!

If you need any support then please see your child’s teacher. Also remember to look out for any homework on the blog!

Thank you,
Reception Teachers.
