Reception summer term

Our topic this half term has been The Great Outdoors, so despite the terribly wet weather we have spent a lot of time outdoors! We have found out about the life cycles of plants and animals including frogs and butterflies. We had our own caterpillars in class, it was amazing seeing them transform into butterflies. We enjoyed exploring the school grounds to find mini-beasts. We looked in many different places such as under logs and in the hedgerows.

We enjoyed seeing all the animals, which Spirit of the Wild brought in. We learnt lots about different groups of animals and were able to carefully handle many of them including a skunk, a snowy owl, a meerkat and tortoises.
