Welcome to the Reception class page!

This term Reception will be learning about different environments as part of our whole school topic 'Our World Around Us'. We will be exploring Space and other natural environments. We are very excited to be visiting The Wetlands Centre to find out about Birds and their natural habitat and what birds like to eat. 
In our outside learning environment we will be doing lot's of planting. We will be creating our very own Sensory Area, growing vegetables and flowers to brighten up our outside area. We will be learning what seeds and bulbs need to grow and observing how they change over time. This also links in with learning about growth and change by learning about the life cycle of a butterfly and we are looking forward to receiving our little caterpillars soon.
We are also very excited to be linking up with Year 1 to work on this terms Enterprise Academy project. Watch this space to find out more...
