Harvest Preparation and Assembly
3rd October 2018
Hedgehogs Class decided to make some Vegetable People (following the stimulus of VeggieTales) to celebrate harvest. Every child chose their own vegetable, created their own name and personality for their vegetable person, and presented this to parents this morning; and grandparents this afternoon.
Technology - Making Christopher Columbus money bags
As part of our topic on Christopher Columbus, we have been thinking about life on board ship. The sailors would have had little money bags to keep their few coins in. We made our own using some felt and some string. It was fun and we achieved the work very quickly!
27th September - Today, we were investigating materials that keep things warm. To do this, we carried out a Science experiment to see whether we could keep hot water at a steady temperature for a long time by wrapping water bottles with different materials - including bubble wrap, socks, paper and foil.
Dead, Alive and Never Alive
Our Science work has been tying in with our topic on Adventurers and Explorers, in particular, Christopher Columbus. In this lesson, we were learning that all things are either dead, alive or once were alive. We went out into our school grounds to see what we could find before classifying them back in the classroom. Our biggest surprise was to realise that a lot of our school uniform was once alive!
We have started our Maths unit this year by looking at place value. We quickly made some 'crocodile mouths' to help us work out which numbers are bigger than others. Now we know the rule that the crocodile always eats the bigger number!
