Blowing Bubbles in Reception Class

I often think that I would love to be a pupil at school again, even though I have the pleasure of being in a school every day of my working week.  Watching the reception class children blow bubbles as part of their science was exactly one of those occasions.  The children were trying to make their bubble chains as long as possible and it caused much hilarity in among the learning.  We are working hard at school to help the children to use language and words as a way of helping their writing to improve in all areas of the curriculum, so from this work with Mrs Cunliffe the children then found ways to communicate what they have learned.  As well as blowing the bubbles, the children also learned how to make them and made guesses about what they thought would happen once they had made them.  I am sure like me, you would have liked to be there to join in the fun!

Trenode is a small but growing primary school situated between Liskeard and Looe. Extensive grounds allow for a range of outdoor learning experiences; we also have spacious indoor facilities, including a music room. A nurturing, family ethos, in mixed-age classes, enables our pupils to be challenged as individuals.

‘Reach beyond your grasp’ is our motto at Trenode. We would like all children to aspire further than they think they can! We are on a ‘Visible Learning’ journey, with the other schools in Bridge Schools, which is empowering our pupils to be able to discuss their learning and progress, understanding their ‘next steps’.
