Reception Spring Term 3 2022 Review
Reception have enjoyed a fun-filled term centred around their ‘Terrific Tales’ topic. The story of ‘The Gingerbread Man’ prompted some super learning across the curriculum; from writing wanted posters, to designing and making gingerbread people. In maths, the children have worked with numbers to 8 and explored the concepts of capacity and weight. Chinese Lunar New Year was celebrated through craft, performing a dragon dance, making tea, using chopsticks and a fantastic food tasting session kindly provided by Caterlink. At every opportunity the children have loved exploring the outdoors, taking notice of the season and changes in the school grounds. The children have also enjoyed sharing and developing their knowledge of our village of Prestbury.

Reception Spring Term 4 2022 Review
Reception have thoroughly enjoyed a fun-filled term centred around our ‘Planet Awesome’ topic which has prompted some super learning across the curriculum. The children have found out so many interesting facts about the 8 planets in our solar system and even made their own 3D planet using the app Quiver. We explored the concept of gravity by creating straw rockets, created craters in our moon surface and even made flubber slime. We also joined in with British Science Week and grew our own cress heads. The children all became budding artists this term and developed their drawing skills by creating spiral planets as well as creating monoprint and marbled plants. We had another super visit from Caterlink to deliver a healthy eating session which linked with our Jigsaw unit of ‘Healthy Me’. In maths we have been busy developing our mental recall of number bonds to 5 and 10. Following on from last term’s local area studies, we were able to visit Prestbury library and St Mary’s Church for a special Open the Book Service for Easter. At every opportunity the children have loved exploring the outdoors, taking notice of the season and changes in the school grounds.
