Ladygrove Primary School & Nursery

Welcome to Reception 1

Miss Jewell and Mrs Nolan

Around the World

This half term, we will be thinking about the transport we have taken to go on holiday, we will use maps to consider where we would like to visit next. What should we pack? We will draw and write about imaginary journeys and make predictions about how many vehicles we will find around school. As part of our music work, we will accompany stories and songs about transport with music and movement. How far can inflated balloons travel? We will play with them to find out. In our science lessons, we will learn about floating and sinking by building miniature boats and find out about friction by rolling cars down ramps. We will also talk with a crossing supervisor about road safety, learn about high-visibility clothing and design an incredible imaginary vehicle using a computer program.


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.
