Wow snow in March!
We went to experience the snowflakes in the Nursery garden. We felt the snow, we made footprints and watched it melt in our hands. We heard the snow crunch under our feet and squelch out from under our wellies.
Come and tell us what you like about the snow.

Last week we were looking at capacity. The children had great fun in the water tray. They were learning to estimate how many cups of water would fill various containers. They were checking their estimations whilst engaging with the language of capacity.
Can you estimate how many cups of water the kettle at home can contain?

Chinese New Year

Reception 1 celebrated Chinese New Year in the classroom. We built the Great Wall of China. We made model dragons and money bags. The children had an opportunity to attempt some traditional Chinese writing and look at numbers in Chinese. One of the most favourite was having a Chinese banquet using chopsticks!
