Everyday the children in Reception enjoy making their own choices about their activities. They can choose to do one of our challenges or try an activity we have created, or simply come up with an activity of their own!
Arthur’s Amazing Writing Challenge
The Reception children became scientists this term and investigated which way would be the quickest to melt the blocks of ice that was trapping some toy woodland animals. Each group tried a different method (hairdryer, warm water, cold water, salt or hot water bottle) and we observed which group melted their ice and rescued their animal the quickest. In Apple Tree class the warm water worked the quickest!
At the start of the term the children enjoyed making and eating toasty bear faces. The children cut their own slices of banana for the ears and nose, spread the butter on the toast and then chose from blueberries or raisins to add the eyes, before tucking in and enjoying their tasty treat!

Our first Forest School sessions were a huge success and all the children had a wonderful time exploring the woods. The children climbed trees, collected interesting things, like acorns, beech nuts, sticks and leaves and some even found some mini-beasts hiding under logs. Most of the children tried hot chocolate which was made by our Ranger, Donna, on the fire.
