Reception’s trip to Brockholes.

Reception had a wonderful trip to Brockholes Nature Reserve. The children where very excited to be traveling by coach! In the morning the children enjoyed a mini-beast hunt in one of Brockholes’ woodlands. The rain meant we found lots of snails, slugs and worms. The children collected various bugs and insects and identified them. They then talked with the rest of the class about what they had found before returning the creatures to an appropriate part of the woodland. After lunch we adventured to the Deep Dark Woods for a “sensory woodland experience”. We started by using our sense of sight to hunt around the woods for characters from the Gruffalo. The children then explored their sense of touch by working with a partner to explore the texture of the trees with their eyes closed. They worked in pairs to create their own woodland smelly potions. Finally we listened to the sounds of the woodland (mostly the very loud thudding of the rain on the roof of the parachute). The rain certainly didn’t dampen our sprits and a great day was had by all!

Reception’s trip to the Fire Station.

Reception had a wonderful trip to the fire station. The fire men talked to us about the types of incidents they are asked to go to and the people that they help. The children were able to look at the fire engine and learn about all the equipment it carries. The children learnt firefighters have to keep themselves safe. One of the fire men put his protective equipment on for us to see what they have to wear when they go into a fire. The children learnt the different ways a firefighter rescues people and looked at the heavy equipment they need to use to rescue people. It was a great morning and we were very proud of Reception. It was a lovely way to end our first half term!
