What a great start to the Spring Term learning about Water. It certainly was a busy one. Take a look at our learning ……
The children were very excited by our class book “Mr Gumpy’s Outing” and enjoyed re-telling and sequencing the story. In the de-constructed role play and construction area they were busy designing and creating boats for their adventures and stories.
The children had a great time, inviting their grown up into school, to make Mr Gumpy’s boat. “WATCH OUT ….. Be careful it doesn’t tip!”
We have become Scientist and have carried out lots of experiments. We have explored floating and sinking and carried out an investigation to see which material would make the best tent for Ted. He needed to stay dry and warm. It needed to be waterproof. We have also explored ice and melted chocolate to make yummy Valentine Day treats!
We have become coding experts and enjoyed our robot day. Sue who ran the morning, told Jordan how amazing we all were at coding and this included the parents too! We made a robot using a motor which made its head spin round and round. We found out how to change the speed, direction and even how to add a sound effect!
We also know how to keep safe when using devices in school and at home, thanks to Smartie the Penguin.
Our taste buds tingled as we celebrated Chinese New Year. Did you know ….. It is the year of the rat! We had fun learning a Chinese New Year dance and went on a parade around school.
