There are definitely some photo favs in this collection! The year 1s have been exploring as many different ways to make numbers, using numicon, and the Reception children are adding single digit numbers.
We’ve had a very scientific time, sorting objects according to their materials, and discussing what each of the materials are like.
If all the containers have water at the same level, have they got the same amount of water in them? Hmmm…
This week we have spent lots of lovely time designing and making castles. The children have been very keen to get them home, so that they can play with them, with dinosaurs, teddies and ‘to sit inside’!
Today we looked at some of the phase 3 sounds that we have covered so far, in a game of Sound Splat. And for your absolute delight, the Reception children took pictures of it all on the IPad themselves. Here’s what happened!
The children discovered dragon eggs on the Willowbank! They investigated further and found miniature dragons inside!
To add to the excitement, the children also discovered some changes in the pond; they noticed frogspawn and frogs!
The Year One children enjoyed whittling and tying their own swords to become knights, whilst EYFS enjoyed making their own magical dragon wands!
Using balance scales in maths, we’ve been on an object hunt to discover which objects are lighter and which are heavier. We discovered that just because things are smaller it doesn’t mean they weigh less.
We’ve been doing all sorts in PE, learning about attacking and defending, controlling a ball, and balancing on one leg!
