In Reception, our core text is Handa’s Surprise and our global theme is Identity and Diversity. We have learnt what the word unique means and we know that we are all special and one of a kind!

This week we have focussed on the setting of the book. The story Handa’s Surprise is set in Kenya, Africa and we have been talking about how the African Plain is different to England and what it might be like to live there. We have been learning about the setting of the story and the animals we would see there.

The children in Reception have all created some fantastic work this week. We have been drawing/painting African animals, creating African settings and moulding giraffes out of clay as well as lots of other fun activities.

The children are very much looking forward to reading the story next week!
