Well done Reception!
Our Final Family Friday
As part of our space themed term we had a visit from the planetarium. We all went along to our school hall where we found a huge inflated dome! We were so excited when we were lead into the dome to start our interactive session. The technology inside the dome allowed us to see images in 360 degrees, which meant the whole of the inside of the dome became filled with incredible images and videos. We saw rockets, planets and shooting stars moving all around us!
Old MacDonald's Farm
We all had so much fun on our end of year visit to Old McDonald's farm. There were lots of different animals at the farm; including meerkats, pigs, wallabies, rabbits, ponies, cows and many more. We were lucky enough to get the opportunity to get hands on and meet some of the animals face to face like the Shetland pony. Did you know the Shetland pony is the smallest horse breed? They have short legs and a shaggy coat, we loved getting to stroke them. We spent time exploring the farm and seeing all the other animals and especially enjoyed eating our picnic lunch!
Manor Park Library Visit
We were all very excited to go to the library, as many of us had our own library cards and some had never been before. When we arrived we were treated to a funny story called ‘Funny Bones’ which we all enjoyed very much (even the parents!). Then we had an opportunity to see and read a range of books the library had available for children, before we were able to choose and take a book home using our own library cards. We all had a fantastic time!
As part of our topic on plants and minibeasts we all set off for an exciting adventure to Wanstead flats on a marvellous minibeast hunt! We looked for creepy crawlies under logs and stones and we spotted insects in the air. We became nature detectives on our quest to find out about different habitats and the insects that lived in them. You could be become a Nature Detective! Next time you go to the woods or play in your garden, try and find some minibeasts. Where do they like to hide? How many did you discover?
We had special family members in today to celebrate Mother's Day.
Our Families came in today, for a fun mathematics filled Family Friday. We love sharing our learning!
World Book Day March 2019
We found the Gruffalo!
We went to the forest to meet the special characters from one of our favourite stories, The Gruffalo. We were able to explore the forest to find the different characters in their different hiding places. We carried out lots of fun activities while we were there such as; making stick houses for the mouse using sticks that we found, hiding under the fallen leaves pretending to be hibernating hedgehogs and playing hide and seek with our friends. This was definitely a visit we will never forget!
