Spring term 2 in Reception
We hope you all had a lovely half term break.
We have some very exciting things happening this half term as we head towards Easter.
First of all, we will be finding out about dinosaurs and will become explorers in the classroom as we search for evidence of dinosaurs around the class. We will be using our tracking skills to find out how big dinosaurs were and where they might have laid their eggs and we will make a dinosaur nest! We will investigate whether a dinosaur could fit on our classroom and how we would look after it! Our classroom will have a bit of a dinosaur museum feel about it and we hope to have a palaeontologist come to visit us so they can explain all about fossils!
We will be developing our creative skills by doing some giant dinosaur painting outside where we can explore colour mixes that would help camouflage a dinosaur, we will look at dinosaur stories and rhymes and will be given the opportunity to make 'dinosaur music' using different percussion instruments.
We will also be learning all about Easter and why this celebration is very important to people of Christian faith. We are going to visit St Margaret's Church in Woolston, and are really looking forward to finding out about one of our local churches and what happens there at Easter.
We are also going to be busy practising for our Mother's Day Assembly and we look forward to seeing lots of our parents at this special assembly.
In addition to all this excitement we are going to have a mother hen and some of her eggs come to stay with us...what will happen to the eggs? We are going to find out!!
