Caterpillars and Butterflies

Over the last few weeks the children in Reception have been fascinated by the caterpillars that arrived at school. They watched them eat and grow very big! Then they made a chrysalis and eventually emerged as a butterfly. We were all very brave and held a butterfly before we let them go.

On Monday 26th June Reception visited Hall Hill Farm. We went on a tractor ride, fed and held animals and played in the barn. We learned lots!

Our Castle Banquet

To celebrate the end of our castle topic we decided to have our own castle banquet. We made our own food to eat and made our own crowns to wear. Lots of us dressed up and we really looked the part. We did lots of castle dancing, entertained the ‘top table’ and played castle games for prizes.
