We have been having lots of fun learning about ice. We started off by exploring ice cubes and what they felt like… Some children noticed they were starting to turn to water. We discussed that this was called ‘melting’ and then had a think about what causes ice to melt.

We did an experiment to see what would melt the ice quicker; salt or hot air… We even had a letter from Elsa explaining she had accidentally frozen some of our toys and we had to figure out how to free them!

We have been learning about capacity and comparing how much we can fit in different containers.

 “It took me 3 cupfuls to get it up to here. It’s only half full.”

 

We have also been identifying which container has the most or the least in… We have used pasta, flour and water to experiment with!
  “I’m scooping the pasta and pouring it back in.”

We have been learning about pointillism and experimenting with using the technique of dotting. We looked at other examples of work inspired by George Seurat and had a go ourselves. Some children discovered that you can also dot with your fingers!

We had an unexpected visitor in the classroom today – an elf!

He had a letter with him explaining that Santa had sent him to make sure the children in Reception were behaving well. He flies back to the North Pole each night with the news for Santa. We had a big discussion about how we need to behave and treat others if we want to stay on the nice list!

These lucky children used their manners and ate all of their dinner so as a treat they were allowed to eat at the captains table the next day!

The children were challenged to find shadows outside and at home too.

We have been measuring items in the classroom using cubes. Then we found a second item and decided which was longer/taller.

After that we were measured and ordered ourselves from shortest to tallest! We know who is the tallest/shortest in our class.

This week we have started learning about Bonfire night and Guy Fawkes.

We used different materials to create different pieces of bonfire artwork. We had a collage table, a painting table and a drawing table so the children could choose which materials they would like to use.

 

Jumping in the Autumn leaves…

We have had a lovely time this afternoon enjoying the Autumn weather and the crunchy leaves!

Some children were sweeping leaves into piles, others threw them in the air and some kicked them to see them fly in the wind.

“I’ve made leaf soup!”
