This term we have been very busy in Reception. We have been learning about traditional tales and doing lots of storytelling. Ollie said: ‘I enjoyed mapping Little Red Riding Hood’. We learned about symmetry, doubling and patterns in Numeracy. Robbie said ‘I really liked making the symmetrical ladybird for our display’. For Easter, we made our own Easter hats and baskets. We also enjoyed going on an Easter egg hunt in the school playground. Jessica said ‘It was fun making my Easter hat, I used lots of feathers and diamonds to make it!’. Our author Jessica Spanyol visited our class and read her book. Ellie said ‘I liked listening to Jessica Spanyol reading her book to us’. Our favourite moment in Reception was dressing up for World Book Day! Our topics for next term are Growth and Under the sea.
