Candling the eggs

Today we used the egg candling machine to see how many chicks might hatch from our 7 eggs. All 7 of our eggs have chicks in and we hope that they all hatch safely.

Egg Countdown

We have some eggs in reception and we are counting down the days until they hatch. We are carefully looking after them while they are in the incubator. We think they might hatch around Friday 27th April but just like human babies, you never really know when they will arrive.

Keep checking the website for updates.

Our trip to Oastler Market

On Monday the 16th of April we walked into town to visit Oastler market. It was a lovely sunny day and we saw lots of beautiful Spring flowers on our walk.

In the market we saw lots of fruit and vegetables, fish, meat, spices and many other interesting things. A kind stall holder gave us all a satsuma which we enjoyed when we got back to school.

On the way back we went upstairs on a double decker bus which was a really fun way to travel back to school.

Welcome to the Summer term

This half term we are learning about growing. We are keeping our fingers crossed for some good weather so that we can explore the natural world and our local environment.

In Reception we spent some time learning about why we wear poppies for Remembrance Day. We then created some representations of poppies through transient art. This means that we made our pictures but didn't keep them and reused the resources.

We are in Reception

 

We are settling well into Reception and are beginning to learn and follow the new routines. Now that we are more grown up we are enjoying choosing what to have for dinner and trying to eat it all independently. We are learning about stories, particularly The Three Billy Goats Gruff, size, number and how to write the letters in our name.
