A big thank you to everyone who provided costumes for the children for World Book Day, all the children looked absolutely fantastic!

 

The Eiffel Tower - February 2020

 

Many of the children in Reception at Ravensmere enjoy accessing the construction area. This week one of the children came up with the idea of constructing the Eiffel Tower. He then asked questions about the Eiffel Tower to find out more about it. He even added a light to the top of the tower so that aeroplanes would be able to see it.

 

 

Pancake Day - February 2020

 

To celebrate Shrove Tuesday, the Reception children at Ravensmere had a go at making and tasting pancakes. They all really enjoyed the taste of the pancakes and came up with lots of fantastic words to describe the taste.

On Monday 27th January, the children at Ravensmere got to experience a show in the Planetarium as part of their learning on Space. The short film taught the children about the phases of the moon and the stars and constelations.

We're All Special

We worked really hard together as a school to produce this lovely display as part of our learning on everyone being different, but equally special. All children in the school then wrote down what made one of their friends special.

 

A Little Bird Told Me

The children in Reception did a brilliant job in their performances of a Little Bird Told Me. We were very proud of how quickly they learnt all of the songs and how beautifully they sang.

Hedgehogs

The children in Reception really enjoyed making some hedgehog biscuits as part of their learning on hedgehogs.

Clay Portraits

Reception went on a search to collect natural resources to help them create their own self-portraits.

 

We're going on a food hunt!

The children in Reception enjoyed a treasure hunt in which they had to find clues to help them identifying a range of fruit and vegetables.

Norwich Castle - March 2018

 

On Thursday 8th March, Ravensmere Infant School visited Norwich Castle as part of their learning on Castles.

 

We had a fantastic time meeting some of the residents of the castle and learning all about what life was like living in the castle.

 

The children had the opportunity to handle and explore various objects that were several hundred years old as well as having a go at making their own pennant. They also learnt what it was like to work in the castle and about the types of jobs that different people had.

 

We all had a brilliant day and have enjoyed bringing what we learnt on the trip back in to the classroom.

 

  

World Book Day - March 2018

 

Due to the heavy snow, we rescheduled our World Book Day for Friday 9th March and were so impressed with the amount of children that were able to come to school in such fantastic costumes!

 

The children also took part in some book themed activities throughout the day!

 

Experiments - January 2018

 

Reception Class at Ravensmere have been participating in lots of exciting experiments this week.

 

They’ve been experimenting with different sized hoops to make giant bubble, measuring to check there is the correct amount of water in the cup and experimenting with food colouring on the ice.

 

    

 

Fire Bowl - January 2018

 

Reception Class at Ravensmere had a fantastic learning opportunity last week.

 

Mrs Kershaw brought the fire bowl to Ravensmere and the children got to sit outside around the fire bowl and listened to the story of George and the Dragon.

 

 

Alien Crash Landing - 30th January 2018

 

Ravensmere got a surprise this week as an alien spaceship crash landed in their playground!

 

The children approached the spaceship very carefully and listened to see if they could hear anything inside it.

 

They then cordoned off the area and made signs to let the aliens know they were welcome and not to be scared!
