Science Week in Reception
Well done to all of the children, who have settled back into school so happily this week. It has been lovely to see the children renew friendships and explore their classroom again.
This week we have been learning all about our senses and how they help us to understand the world around us. We turned our noses up at smelly pots and tried to guess what it contained. Bravely, we dipped our hands into a feely box to discover objects, which the children described as soft, squidgy, spiky, rough, bumpy, hard and silky. Crayon rubbings enabled us to capture the textures of materials we found outdoors. We tried to identify our friends just by their voices and shared the story of ‘Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What do you hear?’ Our eyes were used to spot the early signs of Spring. We tested our taste buds and considered if we preferred sour, bitter, sweet and salty flavours.
Happy Birthday to Mason, who celebrated his birthday on the first day back!
