WHAT ARE WE LEARNING ABOUT?

All creatures great and small!

 

Our theme for this half term is 'All creatures great and small!'

We will begin by investigating how mini-beasts live and move, through observation and using information in non-fiction books. We will be exploring different types of mini-beasts and their habitats through stories and drama. Children will develop their questioning skills and extend their vocabulary by describing and talking about mini-beasts. We will be asking the children to decide which mini-beasts they would like to learn about and use our detective skills to work out if they are insects or not.

On the 10th May, we will be having a special delivery of eggs. Our Reception class has been chosen to be 'The Keeper of the eggs' due to them demonstrating how kind and caring they can be. Reception class will be working together to try and work out what is going to hatch out of the eggs!
