Jack in the bean stalk

Last week in class we were learning all about the story of Jack and the bean stalk. Using pictures we created our own storyboards to help us plant our own seeds.

With our teachers we were able to plant our own seeds to grow our own bean stalks. Over the past week we have been able to watch as the roots grow.

After reading the story of Jack and the bean stalk with Miss Holland we wrote letters to the giant from Jack. In these we were explaining how sorry we were for borrowing his things.

Sleeping beauty

 

Last week in class we were doing all about sleeping beauty. In class we shared the story of sleeping beauty with our friends and teachers. We learnt about spinning wheels and what they are used for. Children painted their own spinning wheels and labelled them.

   

On Wednesday we went on our first trip to Norwich to see sleeping beauty at the theatre. There, we got to join in with the story of sleeping beauty as it was being told.

Doctors and nurses

Last week in class we were learning about another group of people who help us. We learnt all about doctors and nurses.

With our teachers we made our very own doctors bag and we talked about what we would find in our doctors bag. Using pictures of our equipment, children were able to identify and say the letter sounds of each piece of equipment.

  

Just a reminder that Dolphins class have PE on a Monday and Wednesday every week.

Norfolk Wildlife Trust

In the first summer term Reception had a challenge from Norfolk Wildlife trust. We were challenged to encourage minibeasts into our school environment. We decided to plant new plants in the garden to encourage them. We succeeded and Norfolk Wildlife Trust came in to see our garden at the end of our topic and were really pleased with our efforts. They gave us a certificate to say well done. We also successfully looked after tadpoles and watched them change into froglets before releasing them back into a pond.

Time and Tide visit

Reception went to visit the Time and Tide museum on Monday 12th June. We had lots of fun following the adventure of a herring fish and were amazed by how tall the smoke houses were and how stinky they were.

In the afternoon we looked at a herring and had a go at drawing it. We also tried smoked haddock. 17 of us really enjoyed it.
