Making and testing houses
This week in Reception we have been learning about the story of the Three Little Pigs. On Friday we built some new houses for the pigs using a variety of materials. Then we had to test how strong they were to see if they would stand up to the wolf! To test them we huffed and we puffed (and with a little help from a hairdryer!) we tried to blow them down. The children worked really well together to build their houses and carefully thought about which materials would work best to build a strong house.
The children have been really excited about our science topic, animals! We have been sorting animals in groups of animals as well as learning about their diets.
This week we have started looking at multiplication. Children started the week off by having an amount of objects that they had to put into equal groups. They chose to put them in equal groups of 2s, 5s and 10s and some even challenged themselves to put them into groups of 3s. We would be really grateful if you could support your child in practising the above times tables.
We have been busy recreating cave paintings from The Stone Age.
In music this week we have been playing the xylophones.
Children have returned to school in the Spring Term
In week 1 of the Spring Term, the children have returned to school ready to learn and enjoy themselves whilst doing so.
For my homework I made a bug hotel. It was for our science topic "living things and their habitats". It shows how different things live in different habitats; for example bugs live in small holes in damp places and a tiger would live in snowy mountain tops or hot savannahs.
