As part of our toys week in Reception today we were very excited to explore a box of old fashioned toys we have loaned from the Discovery Museum. We all got together to look at some of the things from the box and talk about how to look after them. We used some fantastic words such as 'fragile' and 'delicate'. As the day progressed we got to explore the toys and have a little play. The Butterflies had the box today and tomorrow we will pass it through to the Ladybirds. On Wednesday we are going to try some of the outside toys too. Watch this space...

Yummy yummy yummy, we have fruit in our tummy! Reception loved exploring the healthy fruit in class today, they washed their hands and used knives carefully to cut the fruit into pieces. It's safe to say the children have definitely had their 5-a-day! #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpseyfs #dcpsPSHE

Reception had a fantastic morning as part of their Healthy Red Nose Day. They listened carefully, worked as a team and most importantly had fun! #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpsteam

In maths this week, Reception have been looking at time. We have been learning about the clock face, minute and hour hands and have even been reading O'clock and half past times! The children have been so great at this, we gave them a challenge of drawing times on their own laminated clocks. #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpsmaths #dcpseyfs

PART 2! Today, Reception were lucky enough to have a visit of 'That History Bloke!' Since we will be exploring old and new toys as part of our topic next week, Richard brought the children various old toys to explore. We found out how old they were, what they were made from and more importantly how to play them. Such great fun! #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpseyfs #dcpshistory

Wow, look at these gummy bears! Can you believe how big they have grown just from being in water?! Reception have been also doing an 'eggciting eggsperiment' (sorry! Haha) where we observed what would happen to eggs placed in different solutions. We ended up with bouncy eggs, eggs that had dissolved and some eggs that had grown in size! #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpseyfs #dcpsstem

On the Science agenda today- growing gummy bear experiments, observing water beads, more Walking Water, Gelli Baf fun and even a visit to the planetarium which was in school today! With our Gummy Bear experiment, the children talked about what would happen when we put them in water and salty water. We are leaving them overnight and checking back on them tomorrow (we will update you as to what happened!) Safe to say we have some mini Einsteins in Reception. Happy Science Week! #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpseyfs #dcpsSTEM

Another day, another experiment for Reception! We used old, tarnished 1p coins and placed them into different liquid solutions such as ketchup, vinegar and cola (as you can see by the pictures, some children found these quite stinky and sticky!) We waited a few minutes and observed which liquid made the penny the shiniest and cleanest! #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpsEYFS #dcpsSTEM

Yesterday in Reception, the children delved straight into the nitty gritty of Science week by conducting a 'Walking Water' experiment. Since we are looking at 'Changes' as our Science topic, children observed what happened to the kitchen roll as it absorbed coloured water. They predicted what would happen and were amazed with the results! #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpsEYFS #dcpsSTEM

"Aaaaaargh avast me hearties!!" Reception had a blast last Thursday for World Book Day. We focused on the story of Pirates Love Underpants and dressed as pirates on the day. We made treasure maps and chests and even had a sing song and dance! Fortunately, no one had to walk the plank that day... Phew! #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpseyfs

Reception had a great time at Forest Schools this week, collecting minibeasts, becoming archaeologists, princesses, soldiers and even Ninja Turtles! Some children decided to become pirates and dig for treasure in the soil. Towards the end of the session, the children played pooh-sticks and even got to see a woodchipper in action! #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpseyfs #dcpslotc
