As part of British Science Week, Reception focussed on things that live and grow under the ground. We began by starting the process of germinating runner beans.
We also found a pot of forgotten bulbs that had begun to grow, and so we quickly planted them in the soil!
We had some great responses to the Big Question, “What would be positive or negative if we lived underground?
Ollie “I wouldn’t like it. There are worms under the ground. I don’t like worms.”
Grey “It would be great. Not many predators would know where you lived.”
Lucy “I wouldn’t like to live underground. It would be dark because there would be no light.”
Our Literacy focus has been the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. In class, we made our very own giant’s castles from large and small construction, used lots of mathematical language to describe different sizes, imagined what else could be at the top of the beanstalk and thought about what we would like our magic beans to do, if we had some.
In Maths, we have been busy learning about 3D shapes and their properties.
It was lovely to see so many of you at the Learning Celebration Morning yesterday.
Thank you for coming!
Have a lovely weekend,
The Reception Team
