What an exciting day we’ve had in Reception today! The children have all taken part in tasting a variety of foods and learnt some new language to describe the different flavours. Can you remember our new words to describe the taste of the cocoa powder and icing sugar? I’m sure you can spot the sour faces the children made when they tasted the lemon slices! We’d love to hear what your children have said about our ‘taste’ day.
Year 4 have carried out a fair test this afternoon. We wanted to find out which liquid would evaporate the quickest. We tested: water, salt water and sugar water. In our test, we concluded that water evaporated the quickest. Well done Year 4!
Today in Reception we are learning about our sense of sight. We have been talking about the things we like to look at. Lucy said she likes to look at rainbows and Leighton said he likes to look at his family smiling. We have made binoculars and superhero sight masks! We have also had lots of fun exploring colour mixing.
Yesterday afternoon, we had lots of fun learning about different habitats such as the oceans and the Arctic. We then discussed the different habitats that we might see around school! We decided to explore some of our school habitats and look at the different living things we find there! Our favourite habitat was the pond where we were extremely excited to see a frog!
For Science this half term year 2 are learning all about animals and their habitats. We sorted different animals by habitat e.g. a shark in the ocean then went to see if we could find any animals in the school pond. Children were very excited to spot a frog!
This week in Reception, we are learning about our five senses. Today we explored our sense of touch. We described the texture of different objects using the correct vocabulary such as rough, smooth, soft and Harrison thought of the word ‘bumpy’ after feeling the sole of his shoes. We also had lots of fun exploring the texture of spaghetti and ice.
Can you remember the different objects we felt and what they felt like? We would love to hear your comments.
Mrs Carney and Miss Gerrard’s class have been investigating what happens when we heat up different materials and deciding whether the change was reversible or not. Great work everyone. Also Who can remember what a thermal conductor is?
Year 5 have had lots of fun melting different materials to see if they were reversible or irreversible changes.
Luckily we found that chocolate was reversible, so never worry if yours melts, you can still eat it!!!
Do you know what happens to shadows throughout the course of the day? Year 5 children used a wooden stick in the ground and then measured the length of its shadow every hour. They also checked the direction of the shadow. What do you think they discovered?
What an amazing way to spend our last Monday in Year One! We shared lots of super experiences and lasting memories. The children were so well behaved and we were all so proud of them. We saw horses, cows, hens, pigs and donkeys. We fed lots of different animals and after feeding the hens we collected their eggs. We spent time in a beautiful vegetable garden and tasted some fruit and vegetables that we had never tasted before. Some of the children said that it was one of the best days that they had ever had which we think sums up the day that we had! Fantastic!
