This term the children visited Folly Farm. They all had a wonderful time exploring the woodland area, searching for mini-beasts using their magnifying glasses. The children also had the opportunity to go pond dipping, working carefully as a team to collect pond creatures using a net. They then used an identification key to the name the creatures they had found.
We have had a very busy term finding out about ‘Real life super heroes’. When a nurse came to visit we found out lots about our bodies and how to stay fit and healthy. We even got to see a heart beating when a cardiovascular radiographer came to visit, that was very exciting! We have found lots of great ways to keep fit and healthy. We even had a sack race in the garden!
During an afterschool club we got to be one of the woodland warriors and went to the moat to make dens, cook marshmallows on the fire and investigate the plants and insects that live in the woodland.
We had great fun preparing for the Royal Wedding. We made flags and bunting to decorate the garden, and heart shaped biscuits for the Royal Wedding party. Meghan and Harry got married in the wooden hut and left for their Royal Wedding tea in the red sports car! The parents enjoyed watching the wedding at the end of the day and we got to watch the real wedding at home or in school.
What an amazing term we have had!
In reception this term, we have had great fun welcoming lots of furry friends into our classroom. We had a sheep dog named Buddy come to tell us about how to look after dogs. Miss Broughton told us about her pet hamster, Bruce. He enjoyed rolling around the carpet in his exercise ball. We even got to touch a snake!
We also had an enterprise week. We were given £10 and had to make as much money as we could by creating things in the classroom and then selling them to the parents and pupils. In our maths lessons we made salt dough decorations and bags of sweet treats. We then decorated them and sold them in the school market.
