Science Day 10.11.23 Oobleck, bubbles and fizzing!

What fabulous day Reception had making predictions, observing, exploring and experimenting with different materials. We enjoyed making oobleck with cornflour and water. The children came up with some interesting questions and made some excellent observations. 

'how can it be hard then go slimy again?'

'I think it looks like yogurt' 

'I just don't understand, it was a lump then now it's all runny'

'it's stuck my hands it's turned to snow'

We also discovered what happened when you mix vinegar and baking powder!!!

'it's like an explosion'

'we have got a volcano in our classroom'

'the vinegar is stinky that's why the white stuff fizzes away'

During Science Day children learnt some new vocabulary, discussed their ideas, took turns, shared, practised using their fine motor skills, used mathematic language, explored materials, got very messy and most importantly had lots of scientific fun. 

Congratulations to our Science Award winners Tracey and Teddy!  


Guess How Much I Love You? by Sam McBratney

Reception loved acting out the story all about how much Little Nut Brown Hare and Big Nut Brown Hare love each other. We even used our imaginations to see the river and the moon. 

Friday morning Yoga sessions help keep our mind and bodies healthy. 

Our RE topic this half term is God's World. We have been learning about the Creation Story and all the wonderful things God made for us. 

We are creating a display of people who are special to us. We would love you to send in any family photographs to add to our display.  

Our new Reception children are definitely making the most of their first days at St Philip's.
