Tuesday we predicted what we thought would happen to the sweets Skittles when we added water as part of our Science. Wednesday we worked in groups and slowly added small amounts of water to our bowls of Skittles. The results were amazing. The children loved watching the sweets change colour and the changes to the water. Watch the videos to see the magic happen!
This week we have also been thinking about Remembrance Day and the significance of the Poppy. We were very lucky to have Miss Perre come into our class and show us her Grandfather's medals, beret, belt and photographs from when they both were soldiers. We printed our own field of poppies using corks and cotton buds.
This week we have read the book 'Sparks in the sky' during guided reading. This story follows the adventure of Bo and her first Bonfire night. We also investigated pumpkins with the children predicting what we would find inside when we cut them open. They all thought there would be seeds and I predicted sweets!!! The children were very impressed that they were correct. Next weeks' Science involves Skittles so watch this space. In Maths we have been ordering numbers up to 10 out of order and practicing counting backwards and forwards to 10 from any given number. We also compared the Hindu festival of Diwali and Bonfire night as they both involve fireworks. We have discussed our Nativity, which you are all invited to. Your child's role will be sent home next week.
We had a very busy first term. We explored the changes happening with the change of season. We read and acted out the story of Snow White and the seven dwarfs. In Maths we practiced counting objects to 5 and writing the numerals 1-5.
Welcome to Reception Class
What a fantastic first day of school we all had and how lovely it was to see so many of our class dressed up! Our film was Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and during the day we read the story and spoke about the many different characters in the story. Some of us painted paper plates to look like our faces dressed up.
