Welcome to Reception 1

Are Eggs Alive?

This half term, we’ll head outside for a spring walk to see and explore a range of plants and animals. We’ll head to The Spinney to observe some frogspawn. Do frogs really develop out of this strange jelly? Looking at eggs more closely, we’ll learn about incubation and hatching. We’ll plant, care and observe a range of seeds. What do they need to grow? Before we draw and paint them, we’ll smell and gently touch the spring flowers, using hand lenses to identify the petals, stems and leaves. In our literacy lessons, we will write up our observations, and we’ll sing and play along to spring-themed nursery rhymes. Using our Maths skills, we’ll create shape chicks.


Every other Monday morning we will be visiting our wooded area - 'The Spinney' - to do some outdoor learning and exploring! This is a lovely opportunity for children to get hands-on with nature. 
Please ensure that children have wellies and suitable outdoor clothing on this day. 

We allow staff time off to undertake union official duties, however we do not have any staff who are currently union officials.
