Geography Week and Library Visit

The children enjoyed takíng part lots of maths related field work for geography week.   They explored the distance between trees using trundle wheels and by counting steps. They also used shape finders to count different natural materials in the playground. We measured the size of trees using our arms too!

We loved our trip to the library. The children were so well behaved and very sensible on the way and when we got there. All of the Early Years Staff were incredibly proud. 

Phonics

In phonics we have learnt four new sounds (h, f, b, l) and three digraphs (ll, ff, ss).​​ So far, we have learnt five tricky words which have yo be read ‘just like that’.

Science Day in Reception 

We loved watching the fantastic Dr Bridge demonstrate some incredible scientific experiments. We learnt all about microwaves and saw what sound waves looked like on an oscilloscope. Miss Watson even got a new hairdo from the electrostatic machine. 

In the afternoon we tried 3 of our own experiments that you can try at home.

The milk and washing up liquid experiment

The Cornflakes and magnets experiment
