Reception News Summer 1 Week 2

We began our week with an Art lesson where we followed the process of ‘Austin’s Butterfly’. The children carefully sketched their own butterflies improving and adding detail to their drawing at each stage. They also enjoyed observing our class caterpillars and commenting on the changes they’ve noticed this week.

We have started our ‘Come Outside’ topic off with the traditional tale ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. The children have enjoyed learning the story, planting their own beans outside and using mixed media to create their own beanstalks. In literacy, they used their phonic knowledge to write about their favourite part of the story.

The children have entered the summer term showing they are ready to learn. They have enjoyed sharing all about their Easter holidays and wrote some lovely recounts. In maths they have been learning all about money and set up their very own shop in the classroom! In science the children have started an experiment looking at what type of water is best to help a seed grow. They will be observing their plants over the next few weeks to see what the results are and whether their predictions were correct.
