Reception Latest News- Summer 2- Week 1

The children have enjoyed being back at school and sharing their half term news with their peers. We began the week learning the poem ‘Our wildlife’. We talked about the rhyming words we could hear and closed our eyes to imagine we were in a woodland. The children came up with their own actions to help them learn the poem and have explored new words such as ‘scuttle, soar, hover, and scamper’. Throughout the week, the children have become ‘poets’ themselves as they wrote their own version of the poem. We had some fantastic ideas such as ‘glide like a bird’, ‘march like ants and crunch like a caterpillar’.

The children have enjoyed taking part in an orienteering activity this week through the woodland. They followed the path to find pictures of mini beasts and had different questions to solve. They worked brilliantly in teams.

RSPB’s Great British Birdwatch

Today the Eco warriors took part in the RSPB’s Great British Birdwatch. We located ourselves near the allotment beds because we’ve heard lots of chirping there before. We only saw one little sparrow making the noise but we did see a lot of pigeons, one blackbird, 2 crows, 1 magpie, 4 black headed gulls and one red kite.

It’s not too late for you to take part at home too – you have until the 19th February!
