This morning we had an introduction assembly to Science week, we found out that if you add bicarbonate of soda to lemon it causes a chemical reaction and fizzes, to make it more exciting we added food colouring. After this we worked collaboratively in our house teams and had a Forest School morning. We were given four different activities to complete in our groups. The yellow team started at the pond area, we were given a scavenger hunt to do and the resources to do tree rubbings. We were very successful and found all of the things Miss Carter had put on the list even a wild card item, we think we will get the extra points for ours.
The second activity we completed was the den building, we had lots of fun and even used rope and tarpolein to make our den draft free. The third activity we completed after break time was the collaborative art, we had a big yellow sheet and found lots of natural materials to put together to show our team animal which is a snow leopard. Finally we were in the quad planting nasturtiums, we took it in turns filling our pots with compost, popping the seeds in, covering them and watering them.
It was such a wonderful start to the week, even the sunshine came out. A big thank you to Mrs Daley and Miss Carter for arranging a fabulous morning!
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.
The children have been continuing to watch for cracks appearing in the eggs today.
Some appeared at 11 o clock this morning.
Ebony and Haylee have been keeping the eggs company this afternoon – singing songs to them and drawing pictures for them to enjoy.
