Half term information Spring 2 2022

Reception have so busy again this half term. They have been investigating all things that grow from plants to flowers to themselves. With this, they have been comparing and measuring heights including the heights of each other. They have planted beans and waited with anticipation for them to grow. Many were surprised at the height theirs reached and are excited to continue growing them at home.

We have read some wonderful stories including Jack and the Beanstalk. What fun the children had taking on the roles of the characters from story and using their story telling voices! During World Book Week, they retold the story of The Three Little Pigs and thought about alternative ways the story could end. They certainly came up with some funny endings for the big bad wolf. In one version, he was launched into space and in another, he was chased by the Mummy pig.

With our theme for the half term being ‘Come Outside’ the children have been exploring the great outdoors.  They’ve been on Spring hunts in groups and recorded their findings by making Spring posters. Daffodil's have filled our classrooms and the children have enjoyed doing lovely observational drawings and paintings whilst learning some new artistic techniques. 

Reception as always have had a fun full packed half term and already looking forward to the Summer term which lies ahead.
