So what's happening in Reception?
This week our story is 'Jack and the Beanstalk'
We have planted our own cress seeds and are watching them grow!
We really enjoyed our trip to Macclesfield Forest!
We learnt a lot about different animals and their habitats,
went on a mini beast hunt and built dens together.
In our classrooms our caterpillars have turned into chrysalides!
