We had another fantastic Science Day at the beginning of Term 4. What a day we had! We rotated around the 4 Reception classes and made predictions, explored and investigated. Ask us what friction is! Ask us about aerodynamics and why balloons make a noise when you let them go! Have you ever wondered why they always get stuck on the curtain rail? We had great fun with magnets and we also made exploding rockets! We have many budding scientists in our midst!
A very big thank you to Mrs Taylor and Mrs Woodfield for organising our exciting day.
The Sofa Project in Reception
You may have heard your child talk about finding mystery objects underneath some drapes! This is what we call the "sofa project", as originally, a sofa was used to hide the object. As we do not have sofas in our classrooms we cover the object in different drapes which ignites the children's imagination and provokes some lovely discussion. The object is linked to our story of the week. The children have been so excited about this and love guessing where these objects come from. So please keep it a secret and keep their imagination alive!
We are all having a great time in our new class and have settled in nicely. We have learnt so much already! Just ask us!
