Week 2

  Three Billy Goats Gruff

This week we have been reading the traditional tale 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff'. We explored how to make strong bridges and how to adapt them to make them even stronger. We tested the strength of our bridges by placing our farm animal toys on top. We also designed and made our own tin foil boats to experiment how many coins the boat could hold before it became to heavy and sank. The children really enjoyed counting along with every penny that was added with anticipation.

Attendance Treat

Week 1 

 World Book Day 

This week all the children enjoyed coming into school dressed as their favourite characters from books for 'World Book Day'. It was lovely to see the children smiling, laughing and discussing each others costumes. 

 Attendance Trophy 

It's happened again! Well done Reception Red Room we have the best attendance in the school again this week. Lets keep it up and keep the trophy in our classroom. 

 Mr Wolf's Pancakes 

This week the children enjoyed listening to 'Mr Wolf's Pancakes' by 'Jan Fearnley'. We found out what ingredients we needed to make delicious pancakes in our classroom and had lots of fun watching the demonstration. Flipping the pancakes in the air for the children became very worrying as they kept calling for the flip to go higher and higher (any higher and I think the pancake would have stuck to the ceiling).
