We have been very busy during DT week, designing, making and evaluating fruit ice lollies and Christmas decorations.
On Monday and Tuesday we tasted fruit and juices, decided which fruits we liked the best and chose those to go into our fruit lollies. We then had to draw a picture of how our lollies would look. We made each layer of our lollies separately, putting them in the school freezer each time. We were very excited to see the changes that had happened each time they came out of the freezer. On Wednesday we got to take out lollies home and eat them. It was interesting to hear what we all thought of our lollies.
We also made clay fruit. Don't they look fantastic!
We used the whiteboard to sort fruit and healthy and unhealthy foods.
On Wednesday Year 2 came to visit us and brought the Christmas decorations they had made. They had written instructions to read to us so that when we made our decorations we would know what to do.
We then used the ideas that Year 2 gave us to design and make our decorations. We had to be very careful when sewing the circles together and very creative when sticking on our designs. They look beautiful!
We hope you are all having a lovely half term break. The children have worked so hard and have settled beautifully into school life. It is sometimes difficult to remember that they have only been in Reception for 8 weeks as they have embraced school life so well.
See you all on Monday 5th November when we return to school with a bang (just a little bonfire night joke) with our wedding week. I hope you are all managing to find outfits for the big event on Friday 9th November.
There is also a letter in your child's bookbag about the nativity with details of their role and they outfit they need. It seems like Christmas is a while away but it will be here before we know it!
There is also a food competition sheet to complete. Please hand those in next week when we come back to school. I look forward to seeing the children's ideas.
