Welcome to Reception

We have had a lovely Christmas break and are excited to start our new topics!

In Spring 1 we will be discovering facts about the Arctic. We will be learning about the Inuit community and their traditions as well as their way of life. We will also be learning about the animals that are living in the Arctic and how the environment differs from our own.

In Spring 2 we will be investigating mini beasts, their environment and how they survive. We will also have a special visit from Zoolab, where we will have the opportunity to observe and hold lots of different creepy crawlies.
