April 2018 in Reception 2

Our topic for this half term is growing and mini-beasts. We have been learning about the life cycle of butterflies.  We enjoyed painting symmetrical patterns on butterfly templates and even had a go at doing some origami.

We planted some grass seeds in pots. We have been looking after them, making sure they get enough water and sunlight to make them grow. We have made predictions on how much they will grow.

In Maths we enjoyed doing the Smarties challenge. We had to sort the Smarties by colour, count how many of each colour we had and plot our findings on a bar chart. We then compared our findings with our friends.

In ICT, we have started using bee-bots. We learnt how to program them to move around the bee-bot mats.
