This term Reception have learnt the story, ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’. They then went on to innovate it to ‘The Three Little Bunnies’. In Phonics they have been learning to write sentences using their set 1 sounds. In Mathematics they have been finding one more and one less to 20, estimating and finding the total in two groups. All of the children have been learning 3D shape names and properties. They have also been learning positional language and making repeating patterns. In our topic lessons the children have been learning about animals.

We went on a trip to Windmill Hill City Farm in Bedminster, where the children petted and fed some of the animals. They also had the opportunity to plant some seeds. We are planning a visit back to the city farm in the summer term to see how they have grown.
