Summer 2 Week 5

Another busy week in Reception. It was lovely to see you at the Parent’s evenings this week.

This week our focus has been Ladybirds. We read the story The Bad Tempered Ladybird and the children wrote about what made them grouchy. They painted ladybirds and we added these to a class display. The children have been writing facts about ladybirds and making life cycles. The children have been making paper mache minibeasts. This week we painted them. We made watches to tell the time like in the story.

This week we had lot of excitement in our class when our caterpillar finally turned into beautiful butterflies. On Wednesday, we let the butterflies go.

In Maths, we have been ordering numbers to 20 and practising reading and writing numbers.

In Religion, we learnt the importance of oil. The Good Samaritan used oil to helped the injured man, the priest anoints sick people with oil, it is put on babies at Baptism and at Confirmation.

Lots of excitement in out class on Monday morning when our caterpillars transformed into butterflies. We have been observing the changes from a caterpillar to a chrysalis to a beautiful butterfly. On Friday, we let them go in our playground!
