Welcome to Reception!


Reception have been learning about the life-cycle of a butterfly. We watched the caterpillars form into a chrysalis and then transform into beautiful butterflies. Then we released them in our garden to enjoy the flowers.

Last week the eggs arrived at school. We were lucky enough to be in the Community Room as one of the chicks hatched!  Reception had the job of naming one of the chicks using the letter C or D. The children thought of some names and we had a vote. See our pictures below to see which name won!

Meet Daisy!

Last week Reception celebrated 100 days of school. We celebrated with lots of different activities linked in with the number 100. We invited our parents and carers in to join us in the afternoon.
