Maths activities, building dens and working together! What a great sunny afternoon full of learning and building relationships.

We love to read…

During our story time we had 4 children telling different stories.

We chose which story we would like to listen to. The choices were Elmer, Hairy Maclary, I don’t want to go to bed and Keith and the magic hat.

We all listened carefully to our friends telling the story.

 

The children found this a nice change to me reading the class book!

 

 

Bubbles

We have made our own bubble wands! We carefully twisted the pipe cleaners and made sure we had a circle at the end.

We had a nice afternoon playing with the bubbles, looking closely at the colours we could see and watching them pop! We counted how many we could make at one time – we realised that blowing gently made more bubbles.

The sun has (finally) got his hat on!

We have enjoyed the sun today. We spent the afternoon exploring our outdoor area.

We we had potion making, den building, reading, drawing and building. Everyone was sad to tidy away!

What a lovely afternoon.

Dancing, chicks and good friends.

We’ve had a lovely morning in Reception class!

We all watched some of the boys perform a dance they had been rehearsing to us (too good not to upload!) then we all got to hold our new born chicks and watch them play on the carpet…

 

We we have been doing lots of work on building relationship and being kind to others – we definitely achieved that today!

   

 

We have some movers in our class!

Chick world

We have started our new topic all about farms.
To get the children interested we have had eggs in an incubator and we have been learning about chicken life cycles.

We have all been checking the eggs each day and writing about how we will look after them when they hatch. Today the children worked all together to create a ‘chick world’ – they used different resources to create a play pen for the chickens once they are big enough.

Our first chick hatched and we are so excited! The children have named her Nelly. We also have another one hatching in the incubator. I wonder how many chicks we will have by next week?

 

Science experiment

We have been learning about volcanos… We did a little experiment outside to see if we could make our own eruption.

We used baking soda, washing up liquid and vinegar to cause a chemical reaction.

Have a look at the videos!

Outdoor phonics

We have been making the most of the nice weather and took our phonics outside.

We worked in groups to think of words that had certain sounds in – some of us even tried to write them.

 

      

An unexpected visitor…

We returned to school to find our giant egg had gone!
We had a good think about what might of happened to the egg and decided that perhaps we should of left it in the nest at Forest School…

Luckily we managed to have a look at the CCTV in the classroom and find out what happened to it… It looks like the giant egg belonged to a dinosaur!

The children were amazed… check out the video below to see for yourself!

Mysterious egg

During our trip to Forest School we made a mysterious discovery…. A giant egg!

We aren’t sure what has laid the egg yet but we had some guesses… A giant chicken? A dinosaur? A unicorn? (Some of the children’s guesses!)

The children were very excited and built the egg a lovely nest. I wonder if we will find out what is inside?
