Reception have been learning about boats as a mode of transport and after looking at the development of boats over time, designed their own boats to make. They followed their own plans and used the resources they had listed to make their own boats. We are looking forward to floating our boats to test them out. We have learnt the story of My Gumpy’s outing and have enjoyed doing actions to the words of the story using our story map. We have innovated the story to change Mr Gumpy’s mode of transport from a boat to something different. We have had some exciting tadpole news this week too as the children watch their growth very carefully! It is getting very exciting. The tadpoles now have all of their legs and are starting to sit on the rocks, the look much more like frogs now! The children are keeping a diary of their growth and changes.
