What a busy week! Here’s just a few of the things children have been investigating and talking about. Heath Class have been waiting and watching as their dinosaur egg begins to hatch. This morning the children noticed a very big crack appearing and had to think about how big the dinosaur might be. Will it be a real dinosaur or a pretend one?
They have also been learning about planting and growing, Amber said “I did some planting. I had to dig a hole and put something inside it. I think it was a daffodil bulb”.
In Heartwood Class Dylan said “Planting was exciting because I had to take all the weeds out first”.
Raphael told me he enjoyed making bird feeders. “We had bread and had to break it into bits and put bird seed in”. Eloise explained how they poured the food into a cup and added string, “we had to tie it so it doesn’t fall off” she said.
Clarence Class have been making their own potions! Isabelle explained how she was a real scientist and made her own slime.
Verulam Class were very proud of the instruments they made – shaking, strumming and banging. The children sang as they played their instruments, forming their own band.
Such an exciting week full of lots and lots of learning.
Thank you to Miss Kearns for organising Science Week.
