On Wednesday, we had a visitor! We learnt all about the human body and some of its different systems, such as the digestive system, the circulatory system and the immune system. It was fascinating, and fun!
Today something exciting happened. Emmeline and Helen were digging the the garden and they discovered that some potatoes had grown!
We spoke about what we could make with the potatoes and some children said chips.
Then we carefully chopped the potatoes into smaller pieces. It was very tricky.
While we waited for the chips to cook, we wrote some signs to tell people to come to our chip shop!
Hooray the chips are ready! We shared them with our friends. They were delicious.
Storm Ciara was a talking point today. We spoke about the weather over the weekend and looked at some pictures of the damage caused by the storm.
We went outside to look at the damage in our own garden.
It was still windy so we decided to make some kites.
Next, we flew our kites in the wind!
What a fun day of learning!
We went on winter walk. Before we left school we made predictions about the signs of winter we might find using our 5 senses. It was a beautiful frosty day and we definitely found lots of signs of winter.
We’ve been cooking again!
Last week we worked in groups to plan and cook omelettes. Everyone cracked an egg and helped chop and whisk. We even made a side salad.
The omelettes were delicious, well done chefs!
Today we have been investigating how the shapes of solid objects made from some materials can be changed.
We looked at 4 different ways to change the shape of the object. These were:
Before we did this, we looked at the items to make a prediction. Then we had a go at gently twisting, stretching, bending and squashing each item.
We recorded our results in a table.
What property do you think makes tea towels good for their purpose?
Why would you need to be able to squash a sponge?
When you stretch playdough, what happens to it?
In our role play area, we have set up our own Vets. We love it! We are looking after lots of different kinds of animals.
If you have a pet at home, please bring in a photo to share with the class! We want to put some pictures of our animals on display in the Vets!
Today, we went on a walk to the park to look for signs of Winter. We thought about what we could see, hear and feel.
The grass was frosty. We felt it crunch underneath our feet.
Icy bridges and benches!
Cold water and a blackbird in the tree!
When 4S were in Year 3, they planted some cauliflower seeds. Last week we harvested them, washed, chopped, grated, cooked and tasted them!
Last week we identified and named lots of everyday materials in our classroom.
Today we went into our playground to look for different uses of materials.
