    This week, the Reception class have been reading 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff'. We decided to have a go at building bridges of our own and looked at lots of different examples of bridges to help us. The children used a range of equipment and then thought about how they could test the bridges to see how strong they were. These investigations will carry on into next week.

    This week, the Reception class have continued to explore the story 'We're going on a bear hunt'. We tried to experience all of the things that the family did on their bear hunt.

We visited the little forest school area and acted out the whole story.

Well done Natasha!
