Welcome to the Spring Term

Welcome back for another term in Reception class!

This term we are working on an ‘Under the Sea’ theme. We will be comparing creatures both in the sea and out and this will lead us onto participating in the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch at the end of January.┬áThe children have already started looking out for different types of birds that they see in and around the school grounds, and we encourage you to do the same at home. At lunch time today we were lucky enough to spot a Red Kite and the children were full of stories about the different types of birds they have seen in their gardens at home.

Perhaps dreaming about days by the seaside will help warm us up as we move into Spring. We will be looking at seasonal changes as the days get longer and warmer and bulbs start to sprout in our Early Years garden.

We are also very lucky to have Sue Merryfield continue to come in and help us on Tuesday afternoons, doing cooking with the children. They all enjoy this immensely.

PE sessions are held on Monday and Wednesday afternoons this term and your child’s PE kit can remain in school for the duration of the half-term.

The Reception children have shown such big changes in their maturity since the start of the school year and we are so proud of the fantastic progress they are making.
