It has been a very busy week in Reception! It has been Science week and the children have been investigating different materials linked to our story of The Three Little Pigs.
We started the week sorting different materials
In PE this week we have been performing our gymnastic skills we have learnt over the term so far.
We have finished the week by investigating the best material to make a house for the three pigs. Some children used straws to make their houses, some children used sticks, and other children used bricks to make their house. Once the children had made their houses The Big Bad Wolf came and tested them out, by trying to blow them down.
We found out that the strongest material were the bricks and the wolf couldn’t break the houses.
We have shared our Science investigations with our parents this week too!
We started our week celebrating Pancake Day. We learnt how to make pancakes using the story of ‘The Pancake’ then we wrote instructions how to make a Pancake in our Literacy work. To finish our day we enjoyed eating pancakes with chocolate and strawberry sauce.
We have finished our week celebrating World Book Day. The children came into school dressed up as their favourite bedtime story character or in their pyjamas – ready for bedtime.
The children enjoyed learning about Miss Barber’s favourite stories – The Tiger Who Came To Tea and The Gruffalo.
We are here safe and sound and have settled into our new home for the night. We have taken part in a drama workshop with Clem from the busy days company. Our theme was volcanoes and earthquakes. We work hard to be creative, imaginative, and to work as a team. We had lots of fun and have laughed a lot too.
This week Reception class had a mystery visitor in our new role play area. I wonder who it could be?
The children decided it must have been The Big Bad Wolf. The children came up with a plan that we must try and catch the wolf. The children made ‘Wanted’ posters to try and catch the wolf and in the outdoor area they made traps to try and catch the wolf.
The children then wrote about how they made their traps and what they had used.
We have also done some work about measuring. The children used cubes to measure different objects.
This week we have been thinking about how the Romans helped to shape our lives today. The Romans were the first to build proper roads in Britain. We had a go at making our own Roman Roads, but a much more interesting version! If you would like to have a go at making your own Chocolate Roman Road then follow the instructions below, written by Charlie Pass:
How to make a CHOCOLATE Roman Road
Have you ever wondered how the Romans built their roads? If yes, then read these instructions and you might be able to make your own tasty, edible version.
What you need:
What you do:
First put muesli in the cup. That stands for the rubble that the Romans used at the very bottom, once they had dug a trench.
Secondly put the fig roll in. This is like the layer of concrete.
Next Carefully place the KitKat on top of the fig roll. They are a mixture of stones and concrete
After that, place the maltesers (which are the large stones) and try to make sure that they don’t roll away.
Finally, lay the Oreo biscuit like you would smooth paving stones.
Don’t eat it all at once or you might be sick. Make sure that you share with your friends.
