In Science, we tried melting snow, chocolate, jelly, playdough and wax over an incence burner. The results were very interesting and we carefully recorded our observations.
At playtime, we noticed that there was still lots of frost around! It's been a cold and frosty week. We really enjoyed the snow too.
In literacy, we planned a different end to the story for Jack and the Beanstalk. Jack met giant cats, fairies, Puss in Boots and even an evil Shrek! After exploring our ideas through drama we wrote some wonderful story endings.
Today, we thoroughly enjoyed designing carriages for the Marquis of Carabas, from Puss in Boots. We worked out how to make turning wheels with an axle.
In maths, we have been learning about half and quarter turns.
During messy Science day, sieving muddy water was a favourite activity.
The science fair held by year 6 was fantastic. This is the place we learnt lots of facts in science week. Thank you year 6.
Messy science day was fantastic and of course, messy! We mixed bird seed in four different food dyes to test out if birds see in colour. (We will let you know what we find out). We also sieved muddy water, tested out invisible ink and made some splatter, paint art work. Such a great day!
Plum Class have carried out lots of fun activities on our return to school. We are learning fairy-tales this term and this week we heard the story about Hansel and Gretel. Today, we made gingerbread and the children enjoyed cutting out all sorts of shapes. The role play area is a gingerbread house which we have decorated with sweets. There is even a cage (cardboard box) for poor Hansel!
