Hello Reception,

I hope you all enjoyed learning about the butterfly life cycle last week.  Thankyou to those of you who sent photos of your writing and your wonderful caterpillar and butterfly artwork, it was lovely to see lots of imaginative and creative ideas.  There are some new Maths tasks and a Phase 4 Phonics booklet to complete over the week (you don't need to join letters in your handwriting).  The Literacy activities this week are based around the story of The Snail and the Whale written by one of my favourite authors, Julia Donaldson. 

There are some new activities in the satchel that are all about moving to Year 1 so have a look if you can.  Remember to log on to Bug Club to practice your reading and try to get some exercise too.  I will make sure that you have plenty of books allocated so that you can continue to practice your reading over the holidays.  Have a lovely summer break and I look forward to seeing you all back in school in September.


Stay safe

Mrs Cox
