Foundation Stage Weekly Update ~ 24th February 2017
This term's value is: Kindness

Welcome to term 4

We are looking forward to another busy but exciting term. We have had a great action packed science week this week. We started the week by going in the explorer dome to learn all about space. It was great to see the children so engaged and excited and I think it is fair to say that everyone, including the adults had a great time. The children came back buzzing with excitement and eagerness to further their learning about space. We talked lots about the stars and the planets. 
On Tuesday we were lucky enough to look at the moon rocks and learn more about where they had come from. The fun didn’t stop there though, on Wednesday we took part in the class challenge. The children had to work in teams to build the tallest tower using k’nex. It’s fair to say that the children didn’t find this easy and it was definitely a test of their problem solving and team work. 
Thursday brought a new science challenge, the class investigation with Dr Bearchell. All the children were lucky enough to build their own rockets and then test them out. I think that it is safe to say we have had a fantastic science week. Please ask your child to tell you about it.
