Welcome to Butterfly!
For our first PBL theme we learnt all about ourselves! We created our own family tree and designed an original house using different materials.
Our next PBL theme was all about London! We took part in an interactive retelling of Dick Whittington in our story workshop, we created our own buses out of different resources and made Paddington Bear biscuits in the cooking room! We really enjoyed acting out different stories in our bus station role-play area.
Our next PBL theme was all about Dinosaurs! We really enjoyed this theme, especially our trip to the Natural History Museum! We had our own fossil digging area where we were able to discover and investigate different dinosaur bones and fossils. We created our own dinosaurs from a range of natural and man made materials.
Our next theme was all about stories that we tell, in Reception we focused on traditional tales. We really enjoyed retelling different traditional tales in our cottage role-play area inside the classroom and using our bakery in our outside area. We used the virtual headsets to take a walk through a forest! We even built our own beanstalks, seeing how tall we could make them before they fell down!
These are the children in Butterfly class dressed as their favourite characters for World Book Day:
