Reception - Slinkies

Welcome to Slinkies


Welcome back to the start of another new term.

The Seaside and Under the Sea



Sharing a Shell

By Julia Donaldson



We will be learning about what the seaside is like? If any of the children have ever been to the seaside? What you might find there? What animals live there?


In addition to this the children will be looking more closely at life under the sea. What creatures live there and what they look like, so we will be using a range of non-fiction books to help them find the answers to their questions.


The Slinkies' team we be keeping their 'Spotting eyes' open for 2 children each week that IMPRESS, AMAZE, ASTOUND and SURPRISE us and put their names forward in our special Friday assembly. Their photos will be displayed on the boards near the meet and greet doors - so keep you eyes open for your child!!frown


Also each week a Mathematician and writer will also be chosen and their work will always be displayed on the same board.
