Welcome To Reception Class
Today we went out on a hunt for signs of Spring! We used all our senses to explore our environment. We heard the birds singing, we saw buds, blossom, insects and nests, we smelled the flowers and we even felt the warm sunshine for a minute or two! The children have been very excited to find out about the new season.
On Friday 23rd March we had our school STEAM challenge. We learned about science, technology, engineering, art and maths by exploring bubbles! In Reception we took part in the following challenges....
We used bubbles and paint to make colourful prints!
We counted how many bubbles we can pop in a minute!
We counted how many bubbles we could blow in a minute!
We tried to make the longest bubble snake!
We found out we could make bubbles bounce using our clothes rather than our hands!
