As we move into spring term Reception are following the topics fairy tales and down in the farm.
The first term will focus on fairy tales. We looked at The Gingerbread Man, The three Little Pigs and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. The children will take part in science experiments of finding out what would happen if the Gingerbread Man got wet, find out what materials would keep him dry and how to make the strongest chair for baby bear.
