- About Us
This week Reception had a tasty (if not a little early) treat! We looked at how pancakes are made and what popular toppings people use. First we mixed the ingredients, then we poured it into the frying pan, Mr Storey was a super pancake flipper and finally the best bit...taste test! We even got to top our pancakes with super tasty treats.
As we continue to study Space in this half-terms topic we have created a Planets song. This has allowed all the children to remember the eight major planets and their order from the sun.
If my prediction is correct, we are all going to need time off school for a UK tour because this is a Number 1 hit.
Have a watch and see what you think.
This week we have were very lucky to have the Pantomime in school. We were treated to viewing Cinderella from a travelling production, which incorporated a magical story along with some chart songs which the children also enjoyed.
The children were all given a treat prior to the event but showed great maturity throughout with impeccable behaviour.
Emily said, "It was good because I like Cinderella."
Anya said, "I loved Cinderella because she looked beautiful in her dress.
Finally, Jenson said, "I liked the Step-Mother because she was evil!
Yesterday afternoon we explored the question, 'how does a rocket fly?' Well, there was only one way to find out and that was through an experiment. We all gathered together outside with a bottle, water, cork and a pump. Let's see what happened...
This inspired some of the children to go off and create their very own rocket. This was done in different forms from drawings to junk modelling and the rockets keep coming in.
We are challenging the children to make their very own rocket. This could be a drawing or a model but we want to see what they can create. You may want to do this at home with your child or encourage them to make one at school. We are looking forward to seeing what the children can do.
We have had a very busy week. The children have come back to school raring and ready to go and we have made sure that we have had lots planned to keep them going.
In Maths, we have started to look at weight.. We have been weighing how heavy and light different objects are by using a set of scales. It has been fantastic to see the children using the language of heavy, light and balanced and the scales has certainly sparked some curiosity,
We have then moved a long way away from weight, all the way up into space in fact. An astronaut came into school to answer our burning questions and there was lots. The children sat beautifully and put their quiet hands up to ask some tricky questions for example, why did you become an astronaut? Why do you go in rockets? What do you eat?
We are very excited to continue our new topic and we look forward to more questions that the children might have.
