Oliver's Vegetables

Reception Class have recently begun their exciting adventure themed around healthy eating! The book they currently using for their adventure is 'Oliver's vegetables' by Vivian French. Within this story, there are a wide variety of vegetables which Oliver tastes, so Reception children have been tickling their taste buds with carrots, peas, beetroot, spinach and bean sprouts! From this wonderful text the children have been practising writing sentences about the story. 


Our Reception Class have also been budding scientists this week! They have developed their understanding of the world by potting pea seeds then discussing what would be needed to make them grow and even predicting what we would see growing. Reception have also set up an experiment in their classroom using celery, lettuce and spring onions. They are all sitting in water for our young scientists to decide what might happen to them! Maybe we will see them sprouting!
