Love of Learning, Love of Life, Love of One Another
Welcome to Reception.
During this final half term our topic will be ‘Amazing Animals’. We will begin our topic discussing animals and their young, learning about life cycles and new vocabulary related to baby animals. During this week we will also talk about our pets and animals we help to look after at home and will become caring vets in our role-play area. We are hoping to have a ‘Bring your pet to school’ session on Friday 7th June. If your child has a pet and would like to be part of this experience, please speak to us asap and we will arrange a suitable slot. Each week we will be studying and comparing the different habitats found locally and around the world, looking at the animals that live there and how their physical appearance suits their environmental conditions. We will be engaged in lots of art and craft activities, making representations of the animals and landscapes that we have studied. In RE we will share bible stories such as Noah’s Ark and think about how God created our wonderful earth.
Our topic will include a visit to a working farm/farm attraction where the children will be able to see a variety of animals and learn about how they are cared for. More details about this trip will be sent out soon.
Throughout the summer term we hope PE sessions can be held outside whenever possible, therefore we would ask that you send a PE kit which includes some outdoor PE shoes or trainers into school each Monday ready for the week ahead.
Please remember to send your child to school with a summer coat and hat each day, whatever the weather, and apply sun-cream to start the day as necessary, thank you.
