Today we started our beautiful seascape pictures. They are going to be very sensory- we started off gluing sand on to create the seabed, and then added a collage of tissue paper to create the sea. Wait and see what we add next!
What an exciting day! As an introduction to our new topic, ‘Commotion in the Ocean’, we went on a visit to a virtual aquarium from the comfort of our classroom. We had so much fun spotting all the different ocean creatures, including penguins, turtles, sharks, otters, jellyfish, stingrays, and fish!
I thought you would all like to see the video montage I have made about our Science Week! We got up to lots of science activities, and had so much fun.
Today we went to the Phizz Lab to do some super science based activities. These included…
· Floating and Sinking – Creating a plasticine boat that will float
· What is in the bear cave? – Testing the suitability of materials for a new pair of curtains
· Junk Yard Dive In – Using magnets to separate magnetic and non magnetic materials
· You’re Electric! – Building our own circuits
· Surface Puzzle – Testing different road surfaces
Enjoy this video of us enjoying ourselves and showing off our super science skills!
We have been learning all about our internal organs. These include the heart, the lungs, and the stomach. We’ve been thinking about what they are used for and where we can find them in our bodies. We drew round someone in our group, and then drew on these internal organs and collaged them!
What an exciting day!
Today we all got our wellies on and took a walk down to the river, to have a splash in the water and do some pond dipping. We didn’t find any creatures in the water, but we did have a lot of fun!
Sorry for the radio silence- the blog experienced some technical difficulties but they should be all sorted now!
On Friday we released our beautiful butterflies into the wild. It was so nice to see them fluttering free!
We have been busy describing butterfly life cycles this week. Look at all of our beautiful writing!!
Our new role play has been set up as a minibeast garden! There are lots of insects for us to look at and play with, as well as pots, books, and identification sheets.
