Beach day

On Thursday 4th June Reception will be having a beach day.

Children will be able to come to school wearing beach clothes such as shorts, t-shirts and sun hats.  Please ensure that your child has sun cream on them before they come to school as we will be outside.

For our day at the Myton beach your child can bring a beach towel, bucket, spade and beach ball. Please ensure that their name is on any of these items.

We will also be having a few surprise treats!

Thank you

Who lives in a rock pool?

We have had a very busy and exciting topic this term. Our next topic is called ‘who lives in a rock pool?’ We will be learning all about rock pools and the different animals and plants we may find in them.

One of our first activities in this topic is to ‘make a rock pool in a jar’. In preparation for this activity over Easter please can you collect some of the following items for you child.

  • shells
  • rocks
  • pebbles
  • sea life creatures
  • star fish
  • a clear plastic container to put your rock pool into for example a jar
  • and any other items you can think of!

Please can you bring in these items in a named carrier bag for the first day back after Easter.

Thank you for your going support, we hope you have a lovely Easter.

EYFS team

Reception and Year 4 join forces for Nation Science Week 2019.

This week has seen children from Reception and Year 4 join forces to complete a series of challenges and conduct some serious science investigations.

Slippery Slope

In Reception, Miss Hewitt wanted to find out how different materials and surfaces affected the speed and motion of an object. The groups used honey, baby oil and shaving foam on a ramp and observed the affects it had on their toy cars. Sounds sticky!

Stormy Structures

In Year 4, Mr Harvey wanted to find out how to build a tall structure to withstand the ferocious wind (Mr Harvey blowing it over). Each  group used marshmallows to practice the different designs before deciding which one to use. It was then a race against time to get materials and construct their structure (and eat a lot of marshmallows).

Well done to children from both classes who worked really well together and enjoyed some fantastic investigations.

The challenge

Please let us eat the marshmallows?

I am eating this one!

World Book Day 2019

We have had a very busy and exciting day at Myton Park. Today we all dressed up as our favourite story book characters in celebration of World Book Day. We had a class filled with Peter Pans, Little Red Riding Hoods, Princesses, Superheroes, Wizards and many more. We have loved talking about our characters and explaining why we have chosen them.

As a special treat Mr Harvey brought his Year 4 class into Reception to share some stories. The Year 4 children read lots of different stories to us and some of us even read stories to them!

We have decided that it’s lots of fun working with Year 4 and we would really like to do some other learning  activities with them again!

Farmyard Flyer

Yesterday we had a very busy day at school. We had a visit from both the book bus and the Farmyard Flyers. The Farmyard Flyers brought lots of different farm animals to school for us to see. Animals such as goats, sheep, ducks, chickens, rabbits, alpacas and a turkey. We were able to ask lots of questions about the animals and found out lots of information. The animals were very friendly and we were able to hold and feed some of them. It was a bit of a cold and rainy outside but luckily it stopped raining when we went outside.
