Winter warmer: today we turned the classroom into a soup kitchen! The children chopped and prepared all the vegetables to make 3 different soups: Tomato soup, Butternut Squash soup and Leek and potato soup. We all enjoyed trying the different soups...so did the children in Stoford class.
Sweet fun: We made some peppermint cream polar bears. Are they too cute to eat?

Our new enquiry question is: How are humans similar to animals? How are they different? We are starting by looking at the human body and this afternoon we have been creating our own skeletons using paper straws.
We had a science afternoon looking at seeds. After identifying that the objects we were looking at were all types of seeds, we thought about the different ways that seeds are dispersed. After sorting pictures of seeds into their different dispersal methods, we carried out some investigations looking at wind dispersal and drop and roll. We used our measuring skills to measure the distance the seeds travelled from the landing point.
We had a great morning at the net and wall festival, and learnt some new skills.
We were very excited when we got to see our new classroom for the first time!
Learning about the Battle of Britain, we followed instructions and used our cutting skills to make paper Spitfires. We then used our measuring skills to see how far they would fly.

We used our measuring and cutting skills when we made our gas mask boxes.
On our first day as a new class, we did an activity which showed us how we are all connected in some way, through our experiences or our likes. We got in quite a tangle!
