It’s hard to believe we’re already entering the last week of our half term.   We have really enjoyed seeing all the baby animals over the last few weeks.  We released our beautiful butterflies in our outdoor classroom and have noticed that our tadpoles are beginning to grow legs and become froglets so we may have some tiny frogs after half term.

The children are really enjoyed their Wednesday swim in the school pool, despite the chilly weather.  Hopefully we may see a little sunshine this week.   Thanks again to the wonderful swimming volunteers who are making a huge difference to the children’s experience – especially those who have been brave enough to get into the pool!

We have had so much fun learning to telling and acting out stories such as ‘What the Ladybird Heard’ and ‘We’re Going on a bear Hunt’. The children have enjoyed beginning to learn about money and the concept of value in our maths activities.  They would probably relish the opportunity to use a few coins to purchase something small.  This coming week we will be exploring patterns. 

Weekly wishes!

The Early Years learning philosophy means that we offer the children many different learning experiences across the school day in both our indoor and outdoor classrooms.  To resource this rich and varied independent learning we require lots of different equipment.  We would like to share with you some of the resources that we use in case anyone has anything at home that they no longer require and would be happy to donate to us for the children to use.  Please don’t feel any pressure and we are certainly not asking anyone to purchase new things for us.  We know that families often have clear outs and would just like you to think of us when you do!  This week we would like to ask for any old costume jewellery, beads and gems that might make good treasure for sorting and sharing after half term.

If anyone has any questions or concerns, please do remember our open door policy and come and talk to us.

With best wishes for a relaxing weekend,

The Reception Team
