Our Topic this term

Why do spiders eat flies?

This half term the Reception children will be exploring mini-beasts. The children will find out information about different mini-beasts as well as reading stories linked to our theme. Activities will be linked to all areas of the curriculum.

We enjoyed a visit from Kirkleatham Owl Centre exploring a variety of mini-beasts.




We have been looking at British Values and traditions, including St. George’s Day. We made flags and shields.




Homework is given out on a Friday to be returned by the following Wednesday. This is linked to what the children have been learning in English or Maths throughout the week.


Reading journals

All children should bring their reading book and reading journal to school every day. Please sign the journal when you have heard your child read and write a short comment.


What an exciting half term!
