Reception and Year 1 - Mrs Selby

Welcome to Reception/Year 1!
Mrs Selby

Open Your Eyes


We can’t wait to discover the world through our beautiful surroundings. We will use our ‘Get Out There’ boxes to discover the world under our feet and use magnifying glasses and bug collection pots to compare and group our findings.


We will be enthused by animal and mini-beast inspired music and create our own sounds using tuned and un-tuned instruments.  We will make fast and scurrying beats as a beetle and slow, slinky sounds as a caterpillar!


We will investigate how best to grow seeds and learn how to look after plants. We will plant our own seeds and watch them grow.  We will learn about seed dispersal and find out about the ways in which seeds are dispersed.  ‘The Tiny Seed’ will help us in our quest for knowledge!

We will take part in an exciting day out to White Post Farm and discover how to care for animals and keep them safe and healthy.  We will continue to learn about farming and how it has changed over time with the introduction of modern machinery.
