Brain week STEM challenge - look at our fantastic marble mazes using Lego.

We found DINOSAUR eggs on our healthy walk around school! They were on their own in a nest and we don't know where their mummy is. We decided to take them back to our classroom to talk about and baby dinosaurs hatched out of them. We are going to learn all about dinosaurs so that we know how to look after them.
The toys from the museum have got muddled up. We worked as a team to read the labels and put them back where they belong!
Where are the toys hiding? After reading 'Lost in the Toy Museum', we worked in groups to be detectives and to help Bunting find out where the toys are hiding. We drew our ideas onto sheets of paper. Some of our ideas were - "The toys are at my Grandma's house playing with my toys. They went there on a bus - they must have!" "They made a map for Bunting to follow so that it could lead him to them."
We love to be scientists! Every week we do a different science experiment. Teddies were stuck in the ice and we predicted what would make the ice melt the quickest. We found that salt melted the ice the quickest out of all of the things we used.
Welcome to our scrapyard! We use large junk such as crates and pipes to make lots of things such as pirate ships and vehicles!
Toys! We are learning about toys as part of our new topic. The children have brought some of their favourite toys into school this week to talk about and do some observational paintings.
This week in Maths children are learning to add two groups together and find the total. They rolled two dice and counted that many vehicles into the two garages. Then they counted all of the vehicles to find the total and looked at it written down as a calculation.
Snow day ❄️⛄️ The children loved making footprints in the snow.
Holly class helped to decorate our Christmas tree in the hall. We sang some Christmas songs to get into the Christmas spirit.
As part of our topic about 'Celebrations' we have been learning about birthdays. Our class teddy, Timmy teddy has turned 5 this week so we had a party for him in Holly class. The children made birthday cards, birthday banners and paper chains. They wrote a recipe to make sandwiches and ate them at the party. We sang 'Happy Birthday' and played some party games. Then we had some delicious birthday cake.
After reading 'Kippers Cake' we decided to make the cake in class as part of our taste test!! We added cornflakes, beans, milk, ketchup, sugar and jam!! Some children thought it was delicious and asked for seconds!!
As part of our topic about senses we tested our sense of smell by doing a smell test. Lots of children identified the different smells such as coffee and shower gel.
Our stay, play and learn session was a success! Lots of parents came to play alongside the children in our classroom and look at the learning we have been doing before finding out how we teach the children to read in Reception.
We have been learning about our senses. We decided to make some chocolate crispy cakes for our end of term party for ourselves and grown-ups to enjoy. We thought they were delicious!!
