Reception This Week – 18.1.19

We have started our Talk for Writing story this week; The Gingerbread Man.

The children were hooked into the story by baking Gingerbread Men with Mrs Barnes last week.

This week we have looked at the front and back cover of the story to gather clues about the characters and setting of the story.

The children have used their computer skills controlling a mouse to draw a picture on a paint program of The Gingerbread Man.

 

Chocolate Roman Roads

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:

  • Muesli
  • Fig roll
  • White KitKat
  • Maltesers
  • Oreos

What you do:

  1. 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.
  2. Secondly put the fig roll in. This is like the layer of concrete.
  3. Next Carefully place the KitKat on top of the fig roll. They are a mixture of stones and concrete
  4. After that, place the maltesers (which are the large stones) and try to make sure that they don’t roll away.
  5. 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.

Yellow Day for East Cheshire Hospice

Reception Class organised a whole school ‘Yellow Day’ to help raise money for East Cheshire Hospice.

The children could come into school dressed in yellow clothes.  Also, if they wanted to they could plant a sunflower seed to take home to grow.

In the afternoon, the children had a special visitor come to see them – “Sunny The Dog”.

Thank to everyone who donated money.

Lego Robotics Workshop.

Here we are taking part in a robots workshop. We had to work hard to build our own robot which would move around the room. We used a lot of engineering skills and there was a great deal of trial and error! We all got there in the end and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

 

 

Investigating Fish

As part of our learning about the creatures that live under the sea.  We have looked closely at a real fish from the fishmongers.  The children looked closely at the different parts of the fish’s body and we discussed the features of a fish.  The children made observations of the fish and we discussed why some things occu
