We hope you had a lovely and relaxing half term. It's been so nice to welcome all the children back to school and see them so enthusiastic in their learning.
This term we will continue to explore the theme of 'I Wonder Why...' We have loved the questions the children have asked and enjoyed exploring them as a year group and within individual classes. The questions have covered a broad range of topics, which highlight the children's curiosity and knowledge of the world - for example: Why do lions roar? Why do ships have flags? Why do teeth fall out? How many planets are there? and Why is the sun hot? We will continue to ask and answer more amazing questions and also conduct some exciting science experiments.
We will also be looking at growing and changing as part of the transition to Year One. We will be discussing what we have learned in Reception, the progress we have and made and the things we have enjoyed. We will be writing letters to the new teachers, as well as having some visits to new classrooms later on in the term.
We have our exciting trip to Court Farm on Wednesday 5th July to look forward to as well. if you are able to help please let your child's class teacher know.
As usual, any questions, please don't hesitate to speak to one of the Reception Team.
