In Reception this week we have had Mrs Barnes with us in our class to do some baking.
Each group of children made a chocolate cornflake cake.
The children observed the changes of the chocolate when it got hot and melted.
The used their gross motor skills to mix the chocolate and cornflakes together by stirring.
Then the children had to use their hand and eye co ordination to spoon the mixture into the cases.
Flowers are not just pretty petals and pollen. This afternoon we dissected our flower and found out that they are actually made up of lots of different parts.
Once we had dissected the flower, we labelled the different parts.
Next we are going to find out what each part does.
The children in Reception have been learning about minibeasts and the life cycle of a caterpillar this half term.
We revieved 5 very small caterpillars on Tuesday 2nd May and the children have looked after them and they have grown and grown.
On the 16th May the caterpillars then made cacoons and the children have waited patiently.
Today, at Miss Barber’s house 4 Painted Lady Butterflies have hatched. We are still waiting for one to hatch.
