Wonderful performances of ‘The Sleepy Shepherd’ by our Reception classes in December! Amazing acting, narrating, music and singing – and SO well attended - full house for both performances! Well done to all involved!
Linked to our core book Astro Girl, we carried out two experiments. First we made predictions and then we carried out our experiments outside. It was so exciting to watch what happened to our rocket it flew so high in the sky when we added vinegar and soda to our rocket bottle. The coca cola and mentos experiment was so much fun to watch too!
Linked to our focus artist Andrew Goldsworthy we created these wonderful sculptures using natural materials.
Reception children are settling in really well. They are exploring, playing, making friends and showing lots of confidence, concentration, collaboration and independence already!
