5.7.22 - As part of our ‘Great Outdoors’ topic we have been comparing visiting the seaside in the present to the past. We noticed similarities and differences. One of the similarities was enjoying an ice-cream. We looked at the ice-cream choices and wrote our orders before queuing for our treats 🍦🍦

We learnt that when our shadow is shorter than us the sun is strong. We went onto the playground to notice shadows and drew around them.

27.6.22 - we used the story of ‘Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs’ 🦕 to inspire our Maths learning. We took handfuls of dinosaurs and counted them. We took dinosaurs away and counted again.

22.6.22 - our caterpillars have now finished spinning their cocoons and have been transferred to their net, ready for when the butterflies emerge. The children were amazed to see the cocoons ‘dancing as the caterpillars worked inside.

8.6.22 - as part of our new topic ‘The Great Outdoors’ we have been looking at mini-beasts and their characteristics. Today we learnt a new word ‘symmetry’ and discovered that butterflies are identical on each side.

We were amazed as we folded the wings, patted the paint and then opened up to watch the pattern appear.

When we arrived in our classroom the following day the vegetables were gone and we found a letter from Supertato.

10.05.22 - we read the book ‘Delicious’, about some animals trying to make pumpkin soup. When they couldn’t find a ripe pumpkin they thought of other soups they could make that were ‘scrumptious ‘ and ‘nutritious’. We tried two different soups and compared how they looked and tasted. We thought about what vegetables might be in the soups.

We may have to be more patient with some of the plants!

28.2.22 - we listened to the story 'In a Minute Mum' and then experienced how long a minute was. First we jumped for 1 minute, then stayed silent for 1 minute, and then tried to stand on one leg for 1 minute. Jumping for 1 minute made us very out of breath! We then discussed the dinosaur egg bath bomb and predicted what might happen to it if we placed it into water for 1 minute. We had lots of different ideas! We placed the egg into the water and used a stopwatch to measure the time, checking each minute how the egg had changed. We then worked in groups to notice what happened to the smaller bath bombs, using different temperatures of water. One groups dissolved in 4 minutes, whereas another groups took 6 minutes. We had to wait for almost 60 minutes for the dinosaur egg to finally show us what was inside, a baby dinosaur!! We recorded our findings by drawing the changes that occurred and explained what we had seen.

Playdough recipe to make at home

22.2.22 - for our first session at Playdough Club we used lemons to flavour it. We grated the lemon rind and then squeezed the juice into the mixture. It’s smelt very zesty 🍋

7.2.22 - we listened to the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears and decided we wanted to be kinder than Goldilocks was to the bears. We thought about people that help us and how we could thank them. We decided to draw pictures for our firiends, our teachers and the lunch-time staff. The pictures were very well received and made lots of people,smile. We then thought of ways to help others everyday. using the Random Acts of Kindness cards to remind us.
