Outdoor fun

After we had done our floating and sinking activity we stayed outside to explore.
Some children noticed the water had made a giant puddle and got their wellies on to jump in – they had lots of fun!

We made our own boats!

This week we have been focusing our learning around the story ‘Stickman’ – we noticed in the story that Stickman could float and thought we would try and make some boats so he could get back to the family tree safely.

We used different materials and then did some experiments outside to see if they would float or sink. After that we used other natural materials like leaves, conkers, pinecones and sticks to see which would float and which would sink!

 

Counting!

We have been practicing our counting skills because some of us find it tricky – the children have learned to touch each object and give it a number name – we counted the small bears, then the big bears and then how many all together!

We have started our Autumn topic and have been experimenting with mixing colours – we discovered how to make orange, green and brown and then painted our leaves in autumn colours!

Moving on from our amazing topic on chickens and life cycles, we have moved onto underwater animals and fish.

This still links to our over all topic of animals and which means we are discussing the habitat fish live in, and how the conditions are different to other animals.

Take a look at our amazing activities today based around ‘The Rainbow Fish’ book.

We have been up to some amazing drawing and creating, as well as maths games all based on the book.

We have had more visitors from the eggs we have been incubating, but this time they are Turkeys!

We have been looking after them by keeping them warm and feeding them. They also have been visiting the school field daily to stretch their legs and have a run around on the grass.

We filmed the class talking about what the process has been to get them from eggs to Turkeys!

Its a very exciting time in Birdwell reception, as well as the gorgeous summer weather making lots of activities out doors, WE HAVE A QUAIL!

Over the last few weeks we have been incubating chicken, Turkey, Pheasant and Quail eggs. Our topic has been focussed on the life cycle of a chick and other animals. We have taken time to look closely at what happens inside the egg as the chick grows and what chicks need to survive out of the egg.

Take a look at the amazing video of the Quail breaking out of its egg!
