Reception had a very exciting Science workshop on Tuesday, when they were joined by a real forensic police officer who was investigating a crime scene in our very own home corner! The children learnt about preserving crime scenes, looking for clues, looking at and matching footprints and learning how DNA and fingerprints help to catch criminals. They had fun taking their own fingerprints and looking closely to see if their particular patterns were made up of whirls, arches or loops!
In Maths, the children have had lots of fun exploring capacity in both the water and the sand. They have also been ordering containers according to how much they hold and recording their own predictions and findings.
In RE, Reception have been continuing to think about the story of The Good Samaritan and relating it to everyday life. The children looked at some photographs of people who seem very different to us, and then thought about what questions they would ask to get to know them better.
On Friday, the children met up with the Year 1 children to participate in a fun number activity, as part of our weekly transition program.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend,
Mrs Theo and Mrs Gymer
