Reception - Snowy Owls

Welcome to Snowy Owls page!

We are now in our Summer Term and have started the new topic 'Animals'.
We are currently learning about minibeasts and lifecycles.

We have been going on hunts around school and in the school gardens looking for as many minibeasts as possible. We also went into the pond area to see some real frog spawn and tadpoles, it was very exciting and we had great fun.

We have also been lucky enough to have a special delivery of 'living eggs' (chicks). Within three days the eggs began to hatch and we have been observing how the chicks are growing and changing.

Later on this term, we will be having another special delivery of caterpillars so we will be able to observe the amazing things happen to caterpillars during their lives!

We have sent out our 'existing knowledge sheet'. Please could you share them with your children and send them back it. This is helpful for us to build on your child's understanding of the topic and inform our planning to extend their learning even further.

At home, you can support our theme by encouraging minibeast hunts and asking your children to name and describe any creatures they find.

Don’t forget….

Child initiated learning takes place Outdoors throughout the year, regardless of weather, so please ensure that your child is suitably dressed for the ever changing British weather.

Water is provided at snack time and is freely available throughout the day. Children can bring a labelled water bottle but we remind you that we are only allowed plain water because we are a ‘Healthy School’.

We politely remind you that children are not to bring personal toys into school, unless asked by a teacher.

We are friendly team so if you have any worries or would like a bit of advice please pop in and speak to one of us: Miss Biddlestone, Mrs Hughes or Miss Martin
