World Book Day-2017

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) week-2017

Reception classes have been busy this week exploring aspects of STEM week in partnership with Year 4. We decided to take "Bridges" as our main theme. Dave from Balfour Beattie came to talk to all of us about the new Tadcaster bridge and the engineering involved in the repairs. Then we started off the offical STEM week with a walk to Tadcaster with our Year 4 partners. We visited  the footbridge (it really sways!) . We were the first group to be allowed onto the new bridge! 

The rest of the week has involved retelling the story of the Three Billy Goat's Gruff , sorting bridges by materials, using our ICT skills to research famous brdiges around the world as well as being designers for the day!

We are building "bridges in our brains" learning about metacognition! Wednesday's challenge is to build a bridge with newspaper over our "river" in the hall- how did we do?

This term's focus is about buildings and the local area, so the children visited St Mary's Church in Tadcaster on Tuesday 17th May We walked down the road and met Mrs West at the Church who told us all about the special things and areas in the Church. We found lots of interesting items to look at and we enjoyed being in the Choir!
