Early Years Foundation Stage

Welcome to the Summer Term. We are learning about Mini Beasts this half term and have already started to find out about spiders, caterpillars and butterflies.

We have been watching our caterpillar get fatter and turn into a chrysalis. We are keeping a diary and are very excited to see butterfies soon.

Reception have been making bad- tempered faces like the Bad-Tempered Ladybird.

We enjoyed inviting parents and relatives into school to Stay and Read.

We enjoyed our visit from Lizzy the Lamb during our Spring topic. The children loved learning about Lizzy and watching her run around the classroom.


Reception children enjoyed a visit to Tullie House. They learned more about Castles for our topic on Fairy Tales. We also read stories such as Rapunzel, Jack and the Beanstalk, Three Billy Goats Gruff, and many more.

Here are our topics for this year.

Autumn 1 – Bears
