Our overall topic this half term in Reception has been ‘Let’s imagine….’
As part of our exploration of this, the children have read lots of stories and taken part in activities about castles and dragons. They have developed their design and technology skills by making box models of all kinds of things including castles.
We have been out and about including going for a winter walk to spot signs of the season. The children have taken part in the Big Garden Bird Watch as organised by the RSPB. We went bird spotting around school and then the children counted the birds which they saw for an hour of the weekend. We submitted the results to the RSPB as part of their nationwide bird count. The children spotted all kinds of birds including wood pigeons, swans, robins and parakeets!
