The Reception Team
Well done to all the children who took part in the Science Project Competition. They were all fantastic and we can see all the hard work and effort which has been put into them. We hope you enjoyed being scientists and learning lots.
We had a lovely time learning about the importance of keeping healthy by washing, brushing our teeth, eating healthy foods, getting lots of sleep and how to make ourselves happy if we feel sad.
We had some lovely visitors this afternoon from Nursery, we got to see the chicks and give them a little stroke.
As part of Science Week we have investigated which method is the best for making ice melt. We found that using the plastic hammer broke up the ice but it was the salt which made it melt the quickest. Can you remember what the ice felt like? What else would make ice melt quickly?
We talked about how the ice caps are melting due to global warming and how using our cars less would help our planet.
We had a fantastic visit from Mrs Arabella the Storyteller to celebrate World Book Day. She read the story ‘ Whatever Next’ and the children pretended they were in space and acted out being either astronauts, stars or spaceships. Talk to your child about what they liked best and where baby bear may go on his next adventure!
Today we carried out an experiment to test how far a toy train would travel down a ramp covered in different materials. Can you remember which one was the best?
