Croeso i Derbyn. Welcome to Reception.

Mrs Lewis is your teacher.

  Mr Brown will help you too.




This term our topic for learning is "Our World". We will be exploring the world around us as minibeast hunters! We will be naming, sorting and classifying the minibeasts and looking at the habitats where they live. We will be going on a trip to Wetlands to find out more about minibeats.

Our science investigations will be about worms. We are going to have a class wormery so that we can observe carefully.

Our focus story will be Superworm. We will be reading and writing explanation texts, learning songs and rhymes about insects and we are hoping that we will be able to perform our rhymes for you towards the end of the term. We will design and create a mask or headdress for our chosen insect. We will be watching a short animation- A worm's tale and innovating our own animations. In welsh, we will focus on the minibeast vocabulary, positional language and sentence patterns in the story Tedi Twt a Doli Glwt yn yr Ardd.

In mathematics, we will be subtracting, counting in steps, recapping odd and even numbers, exploring time and position.

We will have great fun preparing for Sports Day and learning lots of different skills. We will also be learning about healthy eating and sun safety.
