Welcome to Reception from Mrs Simms

This term we will be starting with a mini topic on mini beasts. We will be going on a bug hunt creating  bug art as well as becoming authors, writing our very own stories of The very Hungry Caterpillar.


We will then go on to our 'Ahoy Maties' topic where we will become pirates exploring the ocean and learning about sea creatures. We will also be enjoying the story Pirate Pete and his Smelly Feet and using this book to support us writing messages in bottles and making pirate treasure maps! We will also be exploring materials when making pirate ships and plan an extra fun pirate day to end the term.


Our little learners are developing great maths skills and this term will continue 5 a Day sessions to practise their skills an will be continuing on their great journey on the Read Write Inc programme too!
