Context for Learning

During the summer term we will be learning about 'Our Wonderful World'. We will be learning about different countries around the world and will compare the similarities and differences between this country and others. We will be growing our own beans and sunflowers and we will carefully observe how things grow. We will be able to name parts of a plant and some of the flowers and trees in our local environment. We will be learning about the life cycle of a butterfly and will even have our own caterpillars to observe this wonderful process!  In Reception we deliver an ambitous, well structured curriculum that follows the children's interests to develop in all seven areas of learning. You never know what will happen next in Reception!
