Reception's Dinosaur Fact File
Today we received pictures of our Dinosaur Fact File in the Natural History Museum. They have put our fact file in the dinosaur gallery for members of the public to read. We worked really hard on finding out our dinosaur facts and then writing them carefully and neatly. We worked hard on our letter formation and writing words and simple sentences. We used the I-pads to draw our dinosaurs and then cut and stuck them onto our fact files. Miss Ide is very proud of our work and so was the Natural History Museum! After being displayed for over a week they are going to send it back to us to display at school in the library!

Evil Pea strikes again!
Today Evil pea had been up to his old tricks again but this time had trapped Supertato and his friends around the school. We had to help them by solving the riddles on the clues to find them all! When we got to Supertato, Evil pea had left us a message to say we weren't going to find him. We went back to the classroom and created WANTED posters and stuck them around school so everyone can keep their eyes peeled! In continuous provision, some of us made traps for Evil pea. We haven't found that pesky pea yet but we are hoping to soon! Great work Reception.

Floating and sinking experiment
Today we learnt the vocabulary 'floating' and 'sinking.' We had five different dinosaur materials we had to test to see which dinosaurs floated and which sunk. Before we started we made predictions as a class. We then worked as a team and recorded our results on our graph. We all came back together at the end and discussed our conclusions. We found the plastic, paper and tissue paper dinosaur float but the fabric and play dough dinosaur sunk.
Thursday 26th September 2019
Today we had a special package and letter from Goldilocks asking us to help make porridge for the three bears. We had to follow a set of instructions and measure out the oats and milk. We worked as a team to take-turns and check we were measuring correctly. At the end we got to taste the porridge and decide whether we liked it or not. We then attempted to write our names to let Goldilocks know whether we liked the porridge.
