Our topic this term is "Knock! Knock!". We will post some photographs of our learning shortly.

Summer Term 2018

Our topic for the Summer Term is "Egg Drop". 

New Arrivals

Some eggs were delivered to Reception from Incredible Eggs. Chicks hatched from the eggs - it was very egg-citing!


Keeping the eggs warm.


Hatching begins.


The chicks are here!

Shhh! Don’t tell Mr Stallibrass but Reception have been making egg protectors so when they drop eggs onto the playground, they won’t break!


I hope it keeps the egg safe!

We have been out to the school pond and spotted frog spawn and some frogs.

Reception children have been asking the question “How do bears keep warm when they are hibernating?” They carried out a science experiment using a fur-covered hot water bottle and an uncovered one.


Who's been eating my porridge?

Reception children learned how to make porridge and sampled it.
