Ladyland Farm Visit June 2018 - We had a fantastic time at the farm. We learnt all about the different animals that live there. Back at school we are learning even more about the farm and doing some fantastic writing about our trip.

Please see below information about what Ladybird class have been learning in summer 2018!

Reception Castle Day Event

We are keen to make marks using a range of resources and we like to talk about what we have written or drawn.

We like playing maths games and are always keen to explore maths resources set out in our learning environment.

We love learning our sounds!

We love reading! This term we have enjoyed reading lots of books including 'The Three Little Pigs' and 'Little Red Riding Hood'. We have also been reading information books about people who help us. 

We have been making cakes linked to our celebrations topic. We looked at the different ingredients and thought about their similarities and differences. We talked about how they changed when they went in the oven too. We have been writing ingredient lists and party lists too. 

Welcome to Reception 2017-18! 

We love learning to read and write! We have been reading lots of books linked to our learning and practising our writing skills inside and outside! 

We have been learning about 'terrific transformations'. We learnt about how caterpillars change as they grow. We learnt about other minibeasts too. We also had some class tadpoles that we watched change into frogs. 

We love learning about numbers! 

Our dinosaur topic! In the role play area we dug up dinosaurs and identified them. We learnt about fossils and made some out of playdough. We enjoyed drawing and creating dinosaur skeletons with different art materials. We compared similarities and differences between dinosaurs.

Autumn Term Overview

We celebrated European Languages Day by learning about a famous artist.
