Reception's World of Minibeasts

Home » News » Reception's World of Minibeasts

'Feelers out — What's about?' This catch phrase has been heard in class this week to link to one of our favourite Minibeast experts — Jess from Ceebies. Jess wrote a letter explaining that she had seen a wandering spider in Brazil. We wrote back describing the adventures that we have been on over the half term holiday.

Minibeasts from around the world has been our focus this week. We have found out about 5 different Minibeasts; Giraffe Weevils, Stick Insects, Tarantulas, Scorpions and Dung Beetles. Today we have been Minibeast explorers in teams. We have created models of minibeasts, drawn sketches and found out where the minibeasts like to live around the world.

In Numeracy we are learning how to count in 2s and this week we have used our counting in 2s to help us when we have been estimating larger quantities. We found it helped us to count quicker.

We have settled back to our routines and our focus this term 'Be the best that you can be.' This has also been extended to 'Be the best that we can be.' It has been great to see this in action during our first sports day practise. We practised different types of running; sprinting, and jogging. We learnt how to sprint on our own, in a team during a relay race.

The hot weather has given us the opportunity to transform the garden with two new gazebos. This has enabled us to use the garden in different ways. Over the half term holiday we have also had an outdoor tap fitted, and this has been a great enhancement to our learning in the garden. The water play has been extended and we have certainly had lots of problem solving taking place.

Have a great weekend and good luck if you are entering the Fig Pie Wakes tomorrow,

Mrs Pointon.
