Our learning project this term is 'My life in Summer'.
The first half of the term we will be concentrating on growing and healthy eating.
We are hoping to grow our own food and explore healthy living choices.
The second half of the term we will be concentrating on what happens at the seaside.
We are hoping to go to our local beach to explore and then finish off with a trip to the Sealife Centre.
Reception had a wonderful time at Benacre Estate for their fabulous finish. We wend pond dipping, bug hunting and den building. We learnt that the Estate grew peas and rapeseed. Lots of Owls and Robin’s like peas. We build some fantastic dens with our families and friends. Some of us were lucky to find some creatures in the pond, but we all had fun dipping the net in the pond. Our bug and scavenger hunt was very successful we found nearly everything on the list. It was a lovely day and we can’t wait for our next one

We went to a local allotment and saw how local and seasonal fruit and veg can be planted and grown.
We grew our own sun flower and cress. We made cheese and cress sandwiches with our own home grown cress. (we didn't do the traditional egg and cress because of allergies) The children wrote instructions on how to plant a seed and how to make a sandwich.
The children had a fabulous time at Benacre Estate.
We built dens
We went on a scavenger hunt
We even went pond dipping.
Now it's time to start our next chapter in our learning with a trip to our local beach.
Our new learning project is called 'Why do ladybirds have spots?'
Our learning project 'Why do ladybirds have spot?' is a mini beasts topic. For our sparkling start we will have a visit from the Mini Monster guy. The children get the opportunity to see and touch some unusual mini beasts.
Before Ed came we made a list of a few mini beasts that we wanted to find out more about.
Ed answered some of those questions in his visit. We found out that the eyes on a snail are called tentacles, that a snail has one foot and his millipede has 250 legs.
All the children enjoyed their mini monsters experience and maybe you can ask them some questions about their visit.
We finished with an ugly bug ball. The children dressed up as bugs and we had a exciting ball where we played party games, danced to music and played pass the parcel.
Well done Charlie you were the winner of our best costume.
Learning Project - Will you read me a story?
This learning project will be based on fairy tales and fantasy stories.
We had a few visitors in to launch our new learning project 'Will you read me a story?'
We had Elsa and Anna in the morning. We danced, sang songs, retold their story with figures and did loads of paintings of them.
We had Sleeping Beauty and her prince in the afternoon. They read to us, we made them lots of pictures and we showed off our writing and numeracy skills.
We are really enjoying our new learning environment. We have the Giant's kitchen, inside we can make potions, count the golden eggs and make CVC word out of lettered golden coins.
We has another visit from our lovely princesses but this time they sang and danced for us.
We all dressed up for the occasion.
Our guests handed out our bronze certificates to those children who have received 10 gold stars on their charts.
Our Sparkling Start

We went on a Halloween Hunt.
We made pumpkin soup.
We made potions and wrote recipes.
