The Rabbits







  The Fieldmice     

Welcome to Reception – We are Rabbit and Fieldmice class!

Summer Term 2022

What a busy Summer Term we have had! Find out about the exciting and fun things we have been doing!

Miller's Ark

Miller’s Ark Farm came to visit our school. The children enjoyed meeting the animals and learning all about them.


What an amazing ‘eggsperience’! 5 eggs were delivered to our school.

We watched and waited and we were lucky to welcome new baby ducklings into the world.

We looked after the ducklings and enjoyed teaching them to swim.

Art Week (Monet)

In our Art week the children looked at and created their own pictures in the style of Claude Monet.



We found out about lots of different minibeasts and enjoyed the stories of the Very Hungry Caterpillar and The Bad Tempered Ladybird by Eric Carle. We had 5 caterpillars that turned into butterflies and we released them in our garden.


Creative Arts Week

During Creative Arts week we had so much fun! Nigel came to our school and taught us African and Chinese drumming.

We also learnt about African art and we printed our own patterns.

Chloe from Zest dance company taught us how to dance in the Bollywood style and Josie showed us some energetic African dance moves.

We had so much fun practising and performing our dances.

Sports Day

We all enjoyed Sports Day. We split up into coloured teams and then enjoyed a variety of activities.!

A big thank you to all of the parents who came to cheer us on and support us

Canoe Lake Trip

In July the whole of Reception went on a school trip to Canoe Lake. We had a wonderful time.

We visited the Butterfly House, the Rose garden, the play park, walked along the promenade, hunted for minibeasts and had a picnic!

We had a wonderful surprise when the owner of the Southsea Model Village invited us in for a visit.
