All about Growing!
This week we have enjoyed reading the story ‘Jasper’s Beanstalk’ by Nick Butterworth and Mick Inkpen. We have been learning about how seeds grow. Everyone has planted a bean and is really looking forward to seeing it grow. In preparation for how tall we hope our beanstalk will grow, we have been learning how to measure items using our feet, rulers and multi link. We were very motivated when designing and making our paper aeroplanes and really enjoyed talking about and measuring how far they flew. We flew them on the playground and then, with the Nursery (but on separate playgrounds) we chalked flowers and beanstalks to create a playground garden. We have also used our phonics to write a sentence about what we hoped we would find at the top of the beanstalk. Well done Reception, you have been fantastic learners!
First Week back
We have been having fun learning with our friends! We have been enjoying reading the book ‘The Secret Sky Garden’ by Linda Sarah and Fiona Lumbers. We made our own kites and investigated the best material for kites. The children were all very motivated and worked hard with their talk partner to create their own kites. On Friday we showed our kites to Nursery and admired their kites! We then flew our kites on the playground. After we had flown our kites we went back to our classroom and evaluated their performance. The children had lots of great ideas - well done Reception!
The children have settled back into school really well. We are looking forward to another week of learning next week!
