Wow! Reception are super excited for all of the wonderful experiences we will be engaging in this Spring. This term kicked off with a fun packed ‘literacy week’ where the children immersed themselves in the text ‘Pirates Love Underpants’. The whole unit was transformed into a pirate paradise, where we made props to help us on our pirate quests; made huge treasure maps and set sail in our ships.
We even dressed up on Thursday for World Book Day and took part in a huge treasure hunt obstacle course. It was such fun! Next week we will be looking at the Special Olympics, and engaging in lots of sporting related learning! There is a maths workshop for parents, where the children will work with their parents on a variety of different maths activities that can be easily made at home.
All of this is all before this term;s WOW experience: Science Galore! We will be carrying out lots of simple experiments aimed to create awe and wonder and generating fantastic discussions about the world around us.
