 REMINDERS- 

Our outdoor learning day is - Monday

Our PE day is  - Wednesday 

 

Come and have a look at what we've been getting up to!

 

Our topic is Antarctica. We have been working hard to create this wonderful display in our classroom. We have used our Art lessons to create beautiful icy landscapes, our Topic lessons have helped us to learn all about the Antarctic and our English lessons allowed us to write lists, labels and captions to add to our display. Isn't it flippering great?!

 

We are Scientists!

In Birch Class, we are learning all about everyday materials and their properties in Science/Outdoor Learning.

We have done an investigation today using water.  The aim was to see if each material changed when it got wet. We learned the words waterproof and not waterproof along with absorbent and not absorbent. We used these to make our predictions before we started our investigation.

The best part was when we tried the towel and Mr Smith let us put our hands under the towel as the water cascaded down into the box, we got a bit wet!

Once we had finished and got back to the classroom, we carried our experiments on using one of our pods full of water and seeing what materials changed when they got wet.

 

 Birch Class have been on our first visit to the Library today! We had a good look around and loved the under the sea theme. We talked about how to behave when in a library and how to respect the books that we read and take away. We read a lovely book about a little girl starting a new school and making a new friend. We’re all very excited to visit again next week and choose our own books to take home!
