This term for Spring we explored again different places around the world using the computer, Reception let me know where they wanted to go on google earth and we discovered lots of different countries and places some children have been on holiday to and some places they have never been before.

Group Two enjoyed a morning on the water, paddle boarding. The headed down to the Menai Strait in their wet suits and jumped into the very chilly water. After getting to grips with the basics of turning, spinning and trying to travel in a straight line, they walked up the shore and travelled back to the beach. It was great to see some brilliant teamwork on display, helping each other to get into the safety equipment and encouraging each other on the boards.

Seasonal Change Walk?☀️

21-05-2024

Today Reception explored the school gardens looking for signs of seasonal change, they first planned which route they would walk around the gardens following directions. Then Reception examined the different plants and even saw some animals in the gardens. They loved seeing how much they have grown. After Reception had looked at the plants, vegetables and bugs they drew a picture to show what seasonal change they had found, some children drew trees that now had beautiful green leaves on and some children drew bugs and flowers.
