A Warm Welcome to Reception!
Reception is taught by Mrs Taylor and teaching and learning is supported by Miss Taylor.
Dear Parents and Children,
Welcome back to a new term, I hope you all had a lovely spring break with your families and are excited to begin our new learning.
This term our learning will focus on the theme of "Minibeasts." This will be literacy led learning, based on the popular books of Eric Carle: The Bad Tempered ladybird, The Hungry Caterpillar and The Very Busy Spider. We will also be exploring non — fiction books this term about minibeasts and butterfly lifecycles.
To support our theme based learning, rangers from Chester Zoo will be joining us with a selection of minibeasts for us to learn about and we will also have our own caterpillars in class for the children to observe as they grow, pupate and mature into butterflies. We will release these into the garden when they are ready, so they will hopefully begin the lifecycle again by laying eggs on our plant leaves. Very exciting!
