Forest Fridays!

This week on Forest Friday we used our observational skills and went on a bug hunt. We started our hunt in the mud area as this is the best place to start looking for wildlife, especially bugs. We learned more about living things and their habitats and we recorded the data we found on our bug hunt worksheet.

Forest Friday Adventures

This week our forest Friday adventures took us on a treasure hunt around the school following photographic clues. At the end of the hunt we found a giant teddy bear looking after our treasure. We then joined the teddy for a picnic and story. We read 'It's a Bear' by Jez Alborough, Eddie didn't want to go for a picnic in the woods with his mum because he was scared of the bear! Our bear was friendly though so we let him share our picnic. We had peppers, cucumber, hummous and chocolate marshmallows it was yummy.

'The Enormous Turnip'

This week in Reception our Literacy was focused around the story 'The Enormous Turnip' On Monday we arrived at school to find some turnip seeds for us to plant and some other vegetables to taste. All the children loved tasting the vegetables and even tried new things. We then used our Maths to work out which vegetable we liked the most and which vegetable we liked the least. In order for us to plant the turnip seeds we first needed to clear out all the weeds from the bedding boxes, the children loved getting stuck in and helping with this.

Wedding Celebration

The children have thoroughly enjoyed learning all about weddings and linking this to characters that they know. We started the day role playing a wedding ceremony, walking down the aisle with a friend, listening to music, dancing around and then we watched Tangled wedding. Children then enjoyed activities inside and out, making sandwiches and sharing snacks in a picnic style party.

Jasper's Beanstalk

Jasper the cat sent us a delivery, asking for our help to plant the beans he sent us to help him grow them. We have worked really hard, following instructions, using tools and working together. On Friday we found a beanstalk in our classroom for our story but we had to make our own ending because there wasn't a solution in our Tales Toolkit story bag.

We work on our mark making skills every day and this weeks challenge has been to be creative. We have had some amazing mark making going on, using different equipment, just look at our budding artists at work!
