Our last week before half term

Reception children had a wonderful start to the week with a visit to the museum in Oswestry. All of the class were so sensible walking and the adults were extremely proud of how well they listened to our talk. We looked at fossils and enjoyed lots of activities.

On Monday as part of our ‘Sunflower challenge’ in reception we looked inside different foods to see if we could find seeds. We talked about the different fruits we have and used magnifying glasses to become seed detectives. We then used the fruit and vegetables to paint with. We talked about the different shapes we made.

On Tuesday the whole class enjoyed dinosaur day. Some children chose to wear ‘dinosaur’ themed clothes and bring in a toy/book for our special show and tell in the afternoon. In the morning we made dinosaur nest cupcakes and then made our very own fossils using salt dough.

We have all enjoyed counting songs this week.

On Thursday the reception children noticed how much the sunflowers we planted had grown. We took time to really look at the sunflowers and observe what had happened to them. We listened to a story about planting sunflower seeds and watching them grow.

The whole class enjoyed a visit to our new garden of hope on Thursday morning. We talked about the rules when in our garden. We also talked about what hope means and what we hope for.

We have enjoyed performing our final song in Music.

The whole class have made a card for our local care home.

To end the week we have been comparing deciduous and evergreen trees in Science. Well done Earl’s Hill. Have a lovely half term break and I will see you when we return!
