Reception Science Week

User Rating:  / 1

As part of 'Science week, we enjoyed completing an Ogden Trust challenge card outside in our forest schools area –spider webs! Do you know how a spider makes its web?  We thought about what makes a spider’s web so strong and enjoyed watching video clips of different webs. Spider’s use their webs to catch food. We worked in small groups to make our own webs using hula hoops. We investigated using different materials and tried to ‘catch’ different objects in the web.

What makes the web strong and difficult for insects to escape?

Which materials and shapes caught the most things?

What would happen if a spider was as big as a human?

Pancakes!

User Rating:  / 1

Reception have thoroughly enjoyed learning about Shrove Tuesday today. Shrove Tuesday is also known as Pancake Day. It is celebrated on  the Tuesday before Lent begins. Lent is a time when Christians are getting ready for Easter. In the past, people gave up food like eggs, milk and sugar at Lent. The day before Lent began, they would use up all these foods by making pancakes. That is why people eat pancakes on Pancake Day!

We carefully weighed out our ingredients and whished them together. An adult put the batter in the frying pan as it was very hot! We loved eating them with sugar, syrup and lemon.

Fun in Reception

We have had another fantastic week in Reception! In our PE sessions we were thinking about the different animals from our story 'Dear Zoo'. We pretended to be zoo animals and experimented with different ways of moving. We slithered like a snake and jumped like a kangaroo. Can you think of any other ways we might have moved?

Our topic is 'The Weather'. As part of our topic work we have designed and made our own kites! We investigated the different parts of a kite and thought about the equipment that we would need to make one. We enjoyed making them but particularly enjoyed flying them! We were very lucky because it was very windy for us this afternoon.
