We hope you all enjoyed the bank holiday weekend. It was lovely to see so many of you for our parent consultations this week. Despite it being a shorter week we have still been very busy in Reception!
This week began with the excitement of a special delivery of caterpillars! After focusing on the story ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’, the children have spent a lot of time learning about the life cycle of a caterpillar and the changes that happen when it becomes a butterfly. The children now have the opportunity to bring this learning to life by carefully observing the caterpillars. It has been wonderful to see their curiosity in the caterpillars and listen to their discussions about what changes they have noticed. Already they have observed that the caterpillars have nearly grown double the size!
As we welcome in the month of May, we have been learning all about the importance of Mary in our faith. Mary being the Mother of Jesus and a symbol of love. The children have begun to make their own tributes to Mary through both drawings and models of blue flowers. Some children have also had a go at making their own Rosary beads at home, which was wonderful to see!
Today we have been enjoying all things maths in raising money for the NSPCC. We have had great fun dressing up in different maths-related outfits as well as playing lots of maths games and using different maths resources! This morning in Maths, the children have been learning how to use a tens-frames, to help them become super mathematicians and to further prepare them for Year 1.
