Our topic this half term in Reception is “Oh What a Wonderful World”. We have started with the Arctic which is very topical after our visit from Father Christmas. We have looked at the globe and maps of the world to see where the Arctic is and discussed reasons why it is so cold there. Researching animals that live in the Arctic was great fun and resulted in trips to the library looking for facts.
We have begun our icy artwork making collages of the Arctic and building igloos with lots of different construction materials. We are looking forward to learning about Arctic Foxes, their habitats and food next week.
In Forest School we tried hard to look after the environment and our world by using the “Litter Pickers” to collect plastics and put them into the recycling bins. Well done Reception, what a great start to the term!
