Welcome to the Reception Homework page!

This week in our Reception classes the butterflies emerged from their pupas. We spent time observing them and then released them on the big field.  We have continued with the painting of our minibeast pebbles.  In Maths we have been composing and decomposing shapes.

Next week will be the last week of our Minibeast topic.  We will be remembering everything we have learnt and discussing our trip to Wellington Country Park.  The children will have the opportunity to write about their favourite part. In Maths we will be learning about money.  We will be setting up a snack shop and looking at different coins and combinations to pay.


For homework we would like you to think about our focus book 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'.  What did the caterpillar eat?  Which foods were healthy?  Can you design a healthy snack for the Very Hungry Caterpillar? You can either draw your healthy snack or make it and enjoy eating it with your family.  We would love to see photos of you making the snack so please add them to Tapestry.

Have a fantastic weekend
