Building Site Visit

Posted by Reception Staff on Thursday Mar 12, 2020 Under Uncategorized

Today we ventured further afield to look at the Heron homes building site.

We went to look at the different stages of house building and to look at the safety that is needed at the building site.

On our way we looked at some of the different kinds of houses and buildings and we talked about which materials they could see.

We met a friendly builder, Ryan. He showed us the clothes that he wears to keep safe whilst working.

We were safe and sensible and enjoyed our visit to the site.  We also talked about road safety and walking sensibly next to the road. Well done Reception.

CSI and Science Activities

Posted by Reception Staff on Tuesday Mar 3, 2020 Under Uncategorized

The children had such an amazing day with a visit from the ‘Crime Scene Investigation’ team.

The ‘Star of the Week’ book had been taken from Mr Russell’s office! The children all took part in a range of investigations to discover the identity of the robber.

We tested the ink from the pens to eliminate one of the suspects.

We used the fluorescent light box to see the secret image. The children then wrote their own secret pictures and messages.

We looked at our own unique finger print using an ink pad.

Science Activities – Tunnels

The children experimented with a range of materials to create tunnels. They made predication’s and tested their ideas.

The children made tunnels with wet sand and used sticks to carefully create a hole through the middle. Stones proved to be the strongest.

The children discovered that it was impossible to make tunnels with dry sand.

Three Little Pigs

Posted by Reception Staff on Tuesday Mar 3, 2020 Under Uncategorized

Welcome back to the spring term. We really are springing back into work in Reception! In our first week back, we found sad pigs in our classrooms. Skylarks had Bill, Bluebirds had Tom and Swifts had Sam. Each pig had a note explaining that the wolf had blown down their houses and taken the key for the brick house. The children were kind and have been discussing ways to help these poor sad pigs.

We have since built houses out of straw, sticks and bricks to use in our small world areas.

We have been acting out the story of the 3 little pigs with that big bad wolf.

The children have been busy investigating our new areas in the classroom and are already interested to learn more about our topic – ‘Move it, Make it, Build it’.
