This term in Reception...

This term in Reception, we will be learning all about the jungle and the rainforest. We will investigate the animals that live their and explore why some animals are better at hiding than others (Camoflauge). 

We will also be looking at the different foods that might be found in the rainforest by having a food tasting afternoon full of all the exotic fruits (e.g. avocado, mango, kiwi and many more).


We will continue with our SCARF and will be learning all about Rights and Respect.
