Spring Term- Week 3
Another busy week in Reception!
This week we have enjoyed learning about the Antarctica. The children are learning to identify the Antarctica on a world map and have learnt some facts;
"It's covered in snow and ice"- JQ
"It's the coldest place" -LM
"Penguins live there" -LT
"The daddy penguin looks after the egg"- MT
"The mummy penguin is sick in the baby penguins mouth" JB
We have enjoyed exploring our new Role Play Area this week!
Spring Term- Week 2- 08.01.2018
This week we have started our new Topic. We were lucky enough to receive a message from Darwin Trotter who has requested help from the children at Barwick School! To help, Oak Class have decided to find out all about cold climates around the world; The Arctic and Antarctica.
To begin, we discussed what happens in Barwick during Winter. The children had excellent knowledge and were able to share their knowledge and understanding with each other. We then went on a Winter walk around the School grounds to explore the frost and ice. Following this, we discussed the changes we have seen between Autumn and Winter. The discussion soon turned to the excitement of possible snow! Our new RE display, SNOWFLAKES, represents the children's interest in snow and ice. They have been busy creating their own snowflakes using scissors, paper and glitter. We soon found that each of our snowflakes were different, just like us!
Look at all the fun we have had in Reception this week:

The children have quickly settled back into rules and routines after the holidays. Everyone has enjoyed sharing news about Christmas, as well as participating in Show and Tell. Videos will be uploaded onto Tapestry this week.
