Pip, pip!

What a busy week it has been in Reception!

On Monday, the farm responded to our fantastic letters and brought us some live eggs in an incubator. We have been carefully observing how the eggs changed and on Wednesday the eggs began to hatch. When the chicks were ready, we prepared their brooder and we were able to hold and feed them.On Tuesday, we had our first visit to the kitchen upstairs and after reading a recipe in groups, we made pancakes by measuring, whisking, pouring, and flipping! We’ve also been enjoying getting busy in our new role play Farm Shop. For maths, we have been applying our skills in money to think about which coins we would need to buy the items we want. We’ve started writing shopping lists to help us. We have also recapped on ‘one more than’ and ‘one less than’ a given number.

After voting for the plant we want to grow, Lime and Apple Class have voted to plant grass and basil respectively in their classrooms. So far we have learned how to plant the seeds in our cups as part of Understanding The World. Now we need to sit tight and see how they grow!

Today, we discussed Roald Dahl’s version of Jack and the Beanstalk from Revolting Rhymes. Which version do you prefer? Year 5 and 6 joined us for some reading to celebrate world book day. Can you guess which Roald Dahl character we are?
