Reception welcomed some new members to our class this week! Four lovely chicks hatched on Monday and all children have really taken care of them brilliantly. They stroke and hold the chicks carefully, thinking about their tiny little wings and feet. As a class, we have discussed their life cycle so far and are looking forward to watching how they change over the next few days.
In our new unit this half term, which is ‘Watch them Grow’ Reception have discussed lots of different plants and flowers and we have spoken about different things which plants need to grow. Children used paints to create some lovely pictures of gardens and flowers to put up on display! Well done on another excellent week of learning Reception.
Well done to all of Reception for their incredible hard work this half term. Children have produced some excellent writing, maths and art work over the last few weeks and have made so much progress during this half term. You should all be very proud, keep up the good work Reception!
Well done to both children who have tried extremely hard in their assessments this week, you have really put a lot of effort into your maths and writing assessments! Both children also behaved very well on our trip to Pizza Express this week and made some great pizzas. Keep up the good work!
Reception have produced some excellent work this week in Maths. We have been learning all about analogue time, children have enjoyed making different times on their clocks and discussing the hour and minute hand. Well done Reception.
Reception have been learning all about different capacities this week, doing lots of pouring, measuring and discussing. Children did an excellent job of filling their jugs to different capacities like half full, nearly empty and almost full. Well done on some excellent maths this week Reception!
It has been a busy Science Week in Reception! As the theme this year was ‘Journeys’ children looked at the story of The Hungry Caterpillar and produced some work on the journey which took place throughout this story. Reception also did some very exciting experiments this week. Our first tested the distance of paper aeroplanes in the playground and whether making one out of card makes a difference to how far it can travel. The second experiment involved filling some balloons with ice and then freezing them. We then took the balloon off, sprinkled some salt on the frozen ice ball, then dripped different food colouring onto it, watching the colours stream into one another due to the trails formed by the salt. It was all very fun! Take a look at our photos below.
