We have enjoyed continuing our ‘Minibeast’ topic this week, particularly learning lots about snails. We now know lots of snail facts and have written fact books! We have loved watching the caterpillars metamorphosing and today we saw one of the butterflies emerge from it’s chrysalis. It was very exciting and we are hoping to see the rest of the butterflies very soon!
Lots of children enjoyed eating bread and honey today, after learning lots about bees this week!
This week in Reception, we have been exploring MAGNETS! The children have been doing some great investigations with magnets, finding out which materials and objects in the classroom are magnetic and explaining why or why not, investigating the magnetic field of various magnets, talking about the north and south poles within a magnet and which sides attract and which sides repel, using the repulsion of magnets to move and push objects and playing with magnetic games and toys. We have been so impressed with the knowledge that the children have gained and shared and the language that they have started to use to talk about magnets. Well done Reception Oak!
