Wow, what a lovely time we have had in reception over the last half term. We were all so proud of the children performing their class assembly with lovely clear speaking voices and fantastic singing. We can now look forward to our mini topic on dinosaurs after Easter and get ready to do some dinosaur stomping!
Bearded dragons like to eat both plants and insects. Watch as Sparky the bearded dragon eats a cricket.
Today the children in reception had an amazing learning experience. Dylan came to school with his reptiles, amphibians and insects. The children were able to hold and touch a corn snake, a boa constrictor, a bearded dragon, a blue tongued skink, tortoises, toads, hissing cockroaches and even a tarantula! Dylan told us lots of facts about the reptiles, what they eat and where they come from. Next week we will have lots of fun finding out about where in the world their natural habitats are.
We have had such a lovely 2 weeks, it has been an amazing experience seeing the eggs hatch and watching the chicks grow and change. The children have cared for the chicks, changing their bedding every day and giving them food and water and understanding the responsibility in caring for others. The chicks are going to live in Mr and Mrs Bentham’s garden now and We are sure they will be very happy there.
Kent and Alfie explain how the chicks have changed.
Today we have been investigating weight in foundation stage. We have weighed some toy animals to find out which were heavier and lighter, we have also been weighing with cubes. We found out that a chick weighs 27 cubes.
The chicks are bigger and stronger now and the children in reception have been holding them very carefully.
Alfie, Max and Daylan have noticed that the chicks have grown.
The children have been caring for our chicks, cleaning out the brooder box and giving the chicks fresh food and water.
