Water Reception and Year 1

Had a wonderful day with Robin Class from Gretton Primary School. The topic of the day was water. 

After the health and safety talk we went into the shade of the play wood and made boats from sticks, leaves, feathers and a few pieces of string. Later when we launched the boats, they all floated! 

The rest of the morning was spent pond dipping. I can’t believe how many baby newts the children are finding in the pond. 

After morning snack the children lay some closed pine cones out in the sunshine. When we came back for lunch, the pine cones were noisily popping open and spreading their seeds.  

After lunch many of the class enjoyed building an extra long slide in the play wood.
