This morning the children in Reception took part in a Tree Workshop.

We met Mr Coleman and Barry the Badger.

             

 

Mr Coleman talked to us about trees and we looked at some tree rings. We tried to count the rings.

 

             

 

We found some trees and made brightly coloured patterns on them to wake them up for Spring.

 

               

We also made some tree guardians using clay and natural materials. These are to protect the trees whilst they are growing. 

               

           

This is what we found out about trees. 

 

 

Everyone had a great time!

Well done!

Last week we wrote to the zoo to ask them to send us a pet. On Monday the zoo sent us a parcel.

               

It was an elephant. We read the story of Elmer and used the Ipads to find out about Jungle animals. We painted some animals and explored colour mixing.

           

         

  

This week Mrs Allister's class visited the library and listened to some stories

.  

            

On Thursday Mrs Dawson's class visited Lichfield Library. They listened to the librarian and looked at the books. They all chose a book to take home. 

                           

The children walked to and from the library and were very tired when they got back to school.

Well done everyone!

This week in Reception we are travelling to The Jungle.

We have been reading Dear Zoo.

We have been answering these very important questions to make us think about what love is.

Who do you love and why?       What do you love and why?

How do you show your love? 

We have set up an experiment in our discovery area to help us learn how plants and flowers drink the water they need to grow and survive.

   

                                                            

We used white flowers, water and food colouring.

                              

We are going to observe the flowers everyday to see what happens next!

Our Big Question is..........

Why is it so cold?

This morning the children in Reception took the fat balls that they had made to the Environmental Area. It was a cold and frosty morning.

                    

 

                          

 

       

 

 

 

The children in Reception have had another very busy week. We have been planting seeds and bulbs, making fat balls for the birds and been on our bikes.

                            

      

                

Hope the birds enjoy these.

We all went outside to ride the balance bikes. We also learnt about the different parts of a bike.

It was great fun!
