Welcome to Reception!

This half term's learning will be linked to 'Billy's Bucket'

Billy wants a bucket for his birthday. At first, his parents try and persuade him to have a more conventional present but eventually they take him to Buckets “R” Us to select his gift from a huge array. Once he fills his bucket with water, Billy claims he can see all the wonders of the ocean deeps and his parents humour him.

However, when they ignore his instructions not to borrow his bucket, something amazing happens.

It links to Understanding of the World by looking at contrasting such as land and sea. It explores different undersea animals and their features. Uses and explore new language from the illustrations such as fins, flippers, scales, coral, tusks etc. as well as that in the text such as sardine, barracuda, shoal, herring, stingray.
