My Reception class enjoyed the story 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt'. We came up with our own story, and changed the words to 'We're Going on a Bug Hunt'. For our class assembly, we learnt Pie Corbett actions to retell the story. We also sang the Ugly Bug Ball song. It took us about 20-25 minutes. The parents and children loved it!

Our topic was 'mini beasts', we we wrote a report about butterflies. We had caterpillars/butterflies in class. The children had observed the full life cycle of a butterfly.
