Butterflies (Reception W)

Butterflies class page,

Welcome back to the Summer term!

This term our topic is called Roots, Shoots and Muddy Boots! We are starting the term by looking at life on a farm. I am sure we are all looking forward to our farm trip on the 29###sup/sup### April. We will be visiting Odd’s Farm where there will be plenty of opportunities to explore and observe the animals. We will then continue to explore how things grow during the rest of the term. We will learn about the different life cycles of some animals and plants and consider what they need to grow successfully. We will also be having some very exciting animal visitors come to stay in our classroom.

In Maths, we will continue to develop a deeper understanding of number by exploring the composition of numbers to 20 and the counting patterns beyond 10. We will also continue to develop an understanding on adding numbers together and the concept of taking away. In phonics we will continue to grow in confidence when reading and writing sentences. Please have a look at our topic map below for some more information about our curriculum coverage.

We will continue to have PE lessons every Tuesday and we will have an additional PE lesson on Monday.  Please make sure your child comes into school wearing their PE kit.

It is great to see many of the children eating the fruit provided by the school for their mid-morning snack. If your child is bringing in their own snack, please ensure that it is either fruit or vegetables. We do have children with severe allergies both within our class and across the school therefore there must be NO NUTS in any of the children’s snacks or packed lunches. Please also see the attached allergy poster for Butterflies. Please provide water in your child's water bottle. 

Please remember that we are always happy to answer any questions you may have with regards to your child’s school life.
