We planted two types of potatoes on 6th March. This week the first shoots have begun to appear! (You have to look very closely to see a tiny bit of green in the compost.) Miss Cunningham is taking them home to look after. We'll let you know how they are growing...
We wanted to find out what season it is. We explored our school grounds, looking, listening and smelling for clues! We found lots of green shoots, many flowers like daffodils and daisies, heard birds singing and smelled the hyacinths. We agreed that Spring is here :-) Can you see any signs of Spring where you live?
On 6th March a real space rocket arrived in our car park! As well as all sorts of other space activities during the week, we made space rockets and space stations in junk modelling. In the afternoon we looked at space artefacts including a space blanket, badges from spacesuits, rocket fuel and lots of space food! (Did you know they eat freeze-dried strawberries and fruit Polos?) We then visited the space rocket and learned all about its trip to space. Finally the whole school watched the launch of a mini rocket which zoomed its way towards the moon!!
20th March What a bright and colourful class of children we had today! For those of you not in school today, hope you are all OK and if you would like to collect your child's belongings and home work pack please email me and I will make sure they are ready for you.
19th March Tonight we'll be sending home the beans that we planted last week together with the children's bean diaries. As their Science 'at home' activity please watch the beans growing and if possible, draw or write about what happens each week.
Today we enjoyed wearing our Christmas jumpers and eating a delicious Christmas dinner in the hall. Thank you to all the kitchen staff, it was delicious!
