In Reception, we spend a lot of time learning outdoors. We make observations of our environment, plants and living things.
We had our own Science week where we did lots of experimenting and investigating. We put different coloured water into cups and watched as the tissue absorbed the water to make a new colour.
We listened to the story of ‘The Enormous Pumpkin’ (Based on ‘The Enormous Turnip’) and had lots of fun acting out the story using various shapes and sizes of pumpkins. The children initiated their own sizing activity. This picture shows children finding the biggest pumpkin. We then turned our pumpkins into bird feeders for the school garden.
This leaflet shows the overview of what your child is expected to learn by the end of their current year group. These are the minimum requirements to ensure continued progress through the following years.
