Our Pirates topic is going really well. Look out for a letter soon about our sharing afternoon.

Welcome to Reception!
Ms Wilson, Mrs Loxton and Mrs John
Welcome to the Summer term! We hope you have had a lovely Easter break. We have a really exciting term ahead and lots of lovely activities planned for the children over the next few weeks. We would really welcome you all to join us on the first Friday afternoon of this half term where you will be able to plant a seed with your child and take part in some craft activities with your child.
We have decided to change around the order of our topics and so following our trip to the airport we will be learning all about different forms of transport. We will be thinking about holidays and where we might like to go on holiday. Where have you been on holiday before? We would love the children to bring in a photo of somewhere they have been on holiday and be able to talk to the rest of the children about where they have been. We will send a letter home to let you know when to send the photos in.
For the weeks following this we will be learning all about lifecycles. We will be reading the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and looking at the lifecycle of beans and planting our own seeds. Then we will be reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar and other books written by Eric Carle. We are very excited that we will be having our own butterfly farm in the classroom and that we will be using our observation skills to notice the changes from egg to butterfly.
In the second half of the Summer term we will be learning through the topic of Pirates. We will be learning about the different parts of the world and we will also be having a pirate day where the children can dress up as pirates and they will learn how to sing sea shanties. We will send home a letter to let you know when this will be, but it will not be until after the May half term holiday.
