Spring in Reception

Spring term in Reception

It has been a very busy Spring Term here in Reception. Our topic this term is called ‘Down at the bottom of the garden.’ We have been having lots of fun thinking about the passing of time and the seasons. Spring is one of our favourite seasons because it is when new life begins to arrive. We have investigated life cycles and are thrilled to welcome the newest members of Reception: the ducklings! We were even lucky enough to see them hatch out of their eggs. They looked a bit tired at first, but now are fluffy and very noisy! We used clay to create our own models of the ducklings, using tools to help us add detail.
This week we have also planted our very own beans, which we are looking forward to taking care of. We learned that plants need three things to grow big and strong: water, sunlight and nutrients. We will continue to explore this topic with our beautiful home corners, which include a Bridal Garden Centre, The Hungry Caterpillar’s House and A Mini Beast Garden. We are further exploring this topic in our specialist lessons including Art, where we have been doing observational drawings of flowers, and Drama, where we have been visiting Mrs. Womble’s Garden Centre.
