JUNIOR DEPARTMENT NEWS
This week in Reception
Reception’s first Lent term topic is Materials and Buildings. The children have shown great enthusiasm when learning about materials. There has been lots of discussion about materials and their properties. One of the activities Reception has particularly enjoyed was being material detectives and working as a team to sort a variety of objects into different groups (fabric, glass, plastic and wood).
They have also enjoyed a ‘Materials I Spy Walk’ around the school and the children were fascinated to see that the buildings of Beechwood are made up of a variety of materials, depending on their purpose! They are now busy creating their class cities, which we look forward to showing you soon!
