A honey of a day !

Reception class are learning about bees this week. We have found out how bees make honey and tasted a delicious piece of honey comb, dripping with runny, golden honey. Yummy !


We’re going on a bug hunt…

Googly, the little alien we rescued last term, has returned to his own planet and sent a message asking for our help. He needs to learn about mini beasts on planet Earth, so we have agreed to help him. Today we put on our wellies, gathered some useful equipment and set off to hunt for bugs and creepy crawlies. We want to find out as much as we can about these little creatures.

Easter bonnet parade

Today marks an important day in the fashion world calendar…the annual Pre Prep Easter bonnet parade. Here are Reception class showing their very own creations. Don’t they look wonderful? Every entrant in the parade was rewarded for their hard work, with an Easter treat…yummy!

Spring is coming to Shearwater

Reception class joined the other Pre Prep classes, for a wonderful morning at Shearwater, in the Spring sunshine. We spotted a frog hiding in a tree trunk, found tadpoles in the stream and saw buds bursting on the trees. We played in the woodland and splashed in plenty of muddy puddles..such fun!

World Book Day

Reception class are sharing books with some strange looking characters today..could these be our reading partners?

Mix a pancake, stir a pancake…..

Today we made pancakes in Reception class, to mark Shrove Tuesday, Pancake day. We all had a turn to mix and stir our pancakes. We watched them sizzle in the pan and waited  to see if Mrs Hewett could toss and catch them. ( She didn’t drop one!) Mmmm, they were tasty.img_19341img_19361img_19381img_19391

Fun with magnets.

Today we had a message from Googly, the Alien in our classroom. He is missing his planet Chromium and all the lovely metal things there. We used magnets to find him some metal, sorting objects into two groups. Whilst doing so we made predictions about which things we thought would be metal and were surprised to find that some things that we thought would be made of metal, actually weren’t. We loved trying to pick up metal things without touching them, watching them jump onto the magnet.

Reception class are learning about space. Today we made pizza planets. We mixed and kneaded, proved and decorated our pizzas with delicious toppings.” How will our pizza change when it is cooked ?” we wondered
