Professor Bubbleworks Visit

We had an awesome visit from Professor Bubbleworks today and were thoroughly engaged and inspired. 

World Book Day

The children were very excited to get their hands on our new books at our 'book tasting'. Thank you to all for making a real effort to dress up in a costume linked to a food-related book. 

Tuesday 3rd March - III - III - MMXX

In science, we recreated the digestive system which was a very mucky process indeed!  First, the children matched definitions, names and diagrams and organised themselves into the order of the digesetive system. After that, they had a go at recreating the process before writing it up. They did a great job!

After the February half-term we will attempt to conquer the Romans as our topic! We have lots to look forward to. Please see our learning journey for the next two terms. 

Friday 17th January

Today, we had Captain Zoe Smith from the Salvation Army in Cocoons Class to talk to us about the work she does as a member of a Christian organisation. The children were full of questions and were so engaged. It was wonderful to hear the different ways in which she serves the community.

Thank you to all the brave parents who ventured out today to support the children on their Stone Age trip                                                                                             to the Ashdown Forest.                                                                                   The children really threw themselves into the spirit of the Stone Age despite the challenging weather!          They learnt so much about how Stone Age people would have lived in our local area  thousands of years ago.

Wednesday 8th January

Today the children learnt about the different types of rock and how they are formed. We used Starburst sweets to make sediments which we compacted into sedimentary rock. After millions of years (ok about 3 minutes!), the heat and pressure applied created metamorphic rock. Finally, we created our own magma by heating the metamorphic rock and cooled it down to form igneous rock. It was great fun!

 

Tuesday 7th January

After reading about the journey of a pebble using the the wonderful book, 'The Pebble in my Pocket' by Meredith Hooper, the children have started to learn about where rocks come from. Today, they made a playdoh Earth and learnt about the layers of our planet. This will lay the foundations for their understanding of how rocks are formed. 

Happy New Year to you all!

I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas break, are refreshed and looking forward to the new term.

This term's topic is The Stone Age. We are looking forward to kicking off our topic with a super trip in the second week back. In the meantime, do take a look at our learning journey overview for the term. I have also sent out a topic homework menu via Marvellous Me, if your child would like to do any additional topic related activities.
