Man on the Moon

This week we are reading the story of Man on the Moon. We have made rockets out of kitchen roll tubes, painted them and added windows and fire. We have also learnt about Tim Peake and the important job he does. In PE we practiced throwing and catching as well as practicing moving in different ways. In Maths we are learning to count beyond 20 and recognise even and odd numbers. At the beginning of the week we were lucky enough to enjoy a bit of sunshine and used part of the field for our free flow activities, hopefully we get some more sunshine back soon.

We finally have butterflies!

Last week while we were on our holidays our butterflies emerged and today we set them butterflies free. Unfortunately only 4 came out of their cocoons. One butterfly wasn’t ready to leave us and enjoyed landing on our hands and clothes but it finally flew off.

Happy Easter

We have had lots of fun this week, learning all about Spring and Easter. We went on a spring walk and found lots of daffodils, daisies, buttercups, and blossom trees. We made lots of spring and Easter crafts, we made chicks, sheep, bunny headbands and painted daffodils and blossom trees. We practised lots of writing and wrote about what we see in spring. We will see you all after the Easter break on 25th April. Have a lovely break. Thank you for all your support this term. The reception team.

Handa’s Surprise

Ladybirds have had a good week reading the story of Handa’s Surprise. We have practised caption writing and written down which animals took the fruits from Handa’s basket. We painted animals and the different fruits. This week we learnt the trigraph sounds ‘igh’ for light, high, bright and ‘air’ for chair, pair, funfair. In PE we continued practicing our football skills and practiced a new game which we will be working as a team in for sports day. Our caterpillars are getting much bigger and we are hoping next week they turn into cocoons and then butterflies, fingers crossed!

Have a wonderful weekend, will we have rain, snow or sun? Who knows!!
