As we returned to school we kicked away a new topic. This half term we will be looking at mini beasts concentrating on food chains, habitats and much more. On Monday we gathered up the clipboards and broke up into small groups to investigate any mini beasts that may live at our school. The children were excellent as they worked together and ensured they didn't disturb an creatures they came across.
We discovered a range of mini beasts including spiders, worms, woodlouse and slugs. The children ticked off on their checklist any creatures they found and we fed back to the other groups when we got back into the classroom.
To coincide with our Topic we will also be visiting Hamsterly Forest on Thursday 3rd May, if you haven't received a letter or would like some further details please do not hesitate to contact the EYFS team.
We have been getting into the spring and Easter spirit! In maths, we have been focusing on addition and using our lovely Easter tools to help us. I think some rabbits may have been eating the carrots.
We have also learned about the Easter story. To celebrate the story we used it as a hook in our ICT lesson and the children have created some wonderful Easter pictures, showing off their fantastic computer skills.
Last week the children took part in Science Week! The children were set numerous challenges across the week including dressing up like a mad scientist and having their own science workshop with a boffin. At the start of the week Mrs Taylor set the children a task to create a bug hotel. Working collaboratively the children discussed what they wanted to put in the hotel which lead many children to design their own hotels for inspiration.
We used a plant pot and put lots of natural materials in, as well as some sweets and sugar cubes to entice the bugs in. We are now observing our hotel every day to see what type of bugs we have to stay.
The children thoroughly enjoyed the workshop with the science boffin. We all got to create our own slime and take it home.
Mollie said, "When you mix it, it sticks together."
When I asked Matthew what it reminded him of he said, "It looks like snot."
Thank you to Mrs Taylor for organising the week, the children had a fantastic time and it has prompted us to become very curious.
Last week, the children brought in some wonderful experiments and we had lots of fun learning about what the children have been doing. One experiment that caught our eye was this incredible volcano...
