Superworm is super-long.
Superworm is super-strong
Watch him wiggle! See him squirm!
Hip, hip, hooray for SUPERWORM!
This week, Reception have been learning about worms and what better book focus to have than Julia Donaldson’s Superworm! The children have been very busy creating plans to rescue Superworm from the evil clutches of Wizard Lizard and making traps to catch the villain and put an end to his menacing ways. Reception also had fun thinking about other things Superworm could do with his long stretchy body.
Throughout the week, the class have also been finding out facts about worms. Did you know that a worm has tiny hairs that they use to pull themselves through the soil? The children have been busy writing interesting questions about worms and also sharing what they know already. All this information came in handy on Wednesday when the class finally got to make their own wormeries. These will be coming home on Monday; please don’t put the lids back on the boxes otherwise they won’t be able to breathe. Thank you for supplying your child with a box this week. Thank you also to the parents who were able to send in some tights; the children had lots of fun turning them into super worms!
The children have continued their obsession with snails this week; it has been perfect snail finding weather! They have now made a little snail world in one of the Tufty trays in the Reception garden- come and have a look!
On Thursday, the butterflies finally emerged! They will need a few days in their enclosure and will be released on Monday.
Thank you to all of the parents who helped Reception Class participate in today’s Blessed Sacrament Procession with the rest of the school. The children were absolutely fantastic- so reverent and respectful. The adults were so proud of them. What wonderful ambassadors for our school!
Have a lovely weekend,
The Reception Team
