Reception – STEAM Day 2 – Team challenge building a bridge for a boat to sail under. Reception have enjoyed the challenge of making a bridge from any material of their choice. The bridge has to be tall enough to so that a boat 20cm tall can sail underneath. There has been some fantastic team work, listening, cooperation and responding to each other's ideas. Children have been measuring their bridge, adapting their work and being resilient in the process. Tomorrow we continue adapting and modifying our work.

As the children were dressed up in red, white and blue for the day to celebrate our International day for Elham who is leaving the school to go back to Paris

Fantastic maths investigation work in Reception! This week we have been comparing and measuring lengths to find out which is the longest and shortest and sorting into order. Today children were investigating how to work out which is the longest without being able to move any items to compare.

Children had to prove which line was the longest and how they had worked it out.

Unfortunately, the ideas of using a measuring tape or a ruler could not be used as these had been stolen, so we had to think of a way to work it out?

The ideas which children thought of for their first investigation were fantast
