Last week we visited the Gordon Brown Centre to help us learn about teddy bears. Take a look at some of the things we did....
First we arrived and made dens for our teddies!
This week has been book week and we have done some really fun things. On Wednesday we did a treasure hunt around school, which led us to a brand new, exciting book. We also had a visit from the Hobgoblin Theatre Company, who performed traditional tales, but with a bit of a twist!!
As part of our water topic we have been learning about floating and sinking. We now know what these words mean. We had a look at some objects from around the classroom and predicted whether they would float or sink. We then tested them to see if our predictions were right.
We did some very clever scientific thinking too....
"I think the spoon and the giotto will sink because they're heavy" - Ava
"I think the sponge will sink because it will collect lots of water" - Vivienne
"I know the lego will float because I've done it at home" - Harry
"I think the pot will sink because the water will go in it" - Ethan
"I think the lollipop stick will float because it is light" - Cara
"I think the lego will sink because the water could go in the holes and make it heavy" - May
"I think the pot will float because it is empty. If you put heavy stuff in it, it would sink" - William
"I think the ping pong ball will float because it is round" - Ellie
It was a pleasure to welcome Dads, Granddads and Uncles into Bumblebee Class today. We ended up with some fantastic junk model animals and everyone worked very hard. As soon as we can, we will put up photos of the children with their animals for all to see!
At the end of last half term, Lenny the Learning Lion challenged us to learn about the artist, Jackson Pollock, and to use his techniques to create our own paintings. We had a great time learning how to splatter, drip and drizzle the paint.
Lenny is sorry about all the mess it caused though!
OUR BIG BUILD!
This week we used large cardboard boxes to make a hut for Percy! It was great fun!
We have been learning lots of new nursery rhymes this term. We have learnt Humpty Dumpty. After learning the nursery rhyme, Lenny the Learning Lion set us a challenge. He asked us to think about how to keep his friend, Humpty Lumpty, safe if he wanted to sit on the wall too. Lenny sent us a video asking us for help! You can see the video by using the link below.
