Conifer - Reception / Year 1 - Miss Walkley

Welcome back!
Conifer class have settled in well. We have enjoyed getting to know the reception children and learning and playing together. 
We are enjoying using our new learning space and outdoor area!
This half term, we’re going to discover that animals come in all shapes and sizes! Meeting animal owners will allow us to ask and answer questions, share information about the pets we have at home and write animal information booklets. We’ll study animal artwork, draw detailed animal pictures to capture their special features and make collages, sculptures and prints. Famous animal fables will make us laugh, and we will have fun reading them aloud. We’ll spot similarities and differences between animals, look at different habitats around the world and investigate camouflage. Designing a zoo is even on the agenda!
Many thanks to those parents that have come in to school to talk about their pets. This has given the children the opportunity to ask questions and see the animals first hand and develop an understanding of how to take care of them. We have enjoyed a talk about Degus, helped give a pair of gerbils a special treat and were brave enough to touch a royal python! 
We look forward to more exciting learning over the term!
