This afternoon we have drawn around ourselves and labelled the body parts!
We are now able to labels lots of different body parts!
This afternoon the children have learnt about their senses! They took part in a carousel of fun and practical activities in the different infant classrooms!
We used our sight to guess the pictures!
We learnt about the sense 'touch' using our fingers to try and guess what was in each box!
We learnt about the senses 'smell' and 'taste'! First we had to smell what was in the box and then we were able to eat it!
In science this afternoon the children have been on a woodlands walk to use their senses! They talked about what they could see,smell, hear and touch!
Today we were looking at the children when they were babies! The children had to guess who was who in the class! Many of the children hadn't changed at all!!
Today we watched a video all about shadows. We then created our own silhouette to create create shadows against the natural and artificial light.
Today we investigated the dark spots on the moon using flour and cocoa powder. We found out that some of the spots are craters and some are empty lava sea beds. We also found out that the moon is not a light source but it reflects light and that it is a satellite
Today we investigated this question: Does foil shine in the dark?
We went to find a dark space, we used our torches to help us see and then we turned the light off momentarily to see if it still shines. Find out the answer below!
Today we had a peek into a bear's cave! We investigated which light source gave out the most light!
This afternoon we have started our new topic! We are learning about different materials. Today we wrote a KWL grid of what we already know about materials and what we want to find out. We then looked at different materials and we investigated if they could twist, stretch, squash and bend. Some of the different materials we tested were rubber, straw, metal and a ball, wood, play dough, sponge and stone.
This afternoon we had an unexpected visitor! Cinderella visited us! She was extremely upset! Her mop had broken so she asked if we could investigate and make her a new one! We tested out 5 different materials such as a plastic bag, jay clothes, fabric, sponge and paper towels. We found out that a sponge will make the best mop as it absorbs the water! 😃
The fairy godmother visited us today! She told us that she had a problem! She had ran out of bubbles! She asked class 4 to test different volumes of washing up liquid with water to see which makes the best bubbles!
Today we had a visit from Cinderella's coachman! He asked us to design a carriage that was transparent and waterproof! We tested four different materials;paper, tin foil, plastic and tissue! The plastic was the best because it didn't let any water through and it was transparent!
This afternoon we started our new science topic! We were looking at classifying animals! The children then had to draw a picture of an animal and their partner had to ask them questions to work out what their partner had drawn!
Today we were matching living things to statements such as "land", "lays eggs". We had to work in teams to match them up!
