Today, something exciting happened... the egg began to hatch
This term Reception are going to be learning all about Dinosaurs. The children were welcomed back after the Christmas holiday by a strange looking egg! They decided to place the egg in a box with a warm blanket and keep it warm by putting it next to a radiator. Next, the children wrote messages on how to look after the egg.

Reception classes had a great time at West Midlands Safari Park. We saw lots of animals and visited Father Christmas in his grotto!

There's a tiny caterpillar, tiny caterpillar, tiny caterpillar on a leaf, wriggle wriggle'

'He will eat the leaf around him til he's full.....'

'He will be a butterfly and fly away...'

We are still growing our beanstalks, for your homework please can you continue to look after your plant and record the changes in your Learning Log. Thank you.

      Summer Term

Welcome back! 

This term we are thinking about Growing. We will be reading Jack and the Beanstalk, and sending home a bean for the children to grow their own beanstalk.

For their homework we would like the children to look after their beanstalk, and draw or write about any changes that happen to their bean. They can tell us how often they water it and where they have put the plant pot so that it gets lots of sunshine.

 

 

 

 

 

Here are the beans we have planted so far.
