Reception Story TimeFebruary

Today, Sycamore went to Oak to read them stories. All the children were put into groups and then the reception children and Year 4s took it in turns to listen to stories being read.
“It was lovely and calm. The younger children really enjoyed hearing stories read by the other children. They are listening really well” Mrs Moore

This week we have been learning how to classify animals. We were given pictures and had to sort them explaining our thinking. We then talked about the different groups scientists use to classify animals.
We then learnt about classification keys and how they work. We were able to use these in more detail to sort specific animals.

Water CycleJanuary

This week we have been learning about the WATER CYCLE. We watched an experiment in class and learnt a song to help our learning.

The link to the song is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWb4KlM2vts

If you want to do the experiment at home make sure you get adult help as you will need hot water.

In a large clear bowl, place a smaller container. Carefully, pour hot water into the large bowl, avoid getting any water in the smaller container. Cover the large bowl with cling film and place several ice cubes on top. Leave for 10/15 minutes. Finally, remove the ice and cling film. You should notice that some of the water has collected into the smaller container.

Can you explain this?

As part of our work about Dragon eyes, not only did we make them with clay and glass eyes but we have also used paper and foil to mould them in to dragon eyes. We then covered them in mod rock ready to be painted.
