We wrote and posted our letters to Father Christmas this week...

We have been using 3D shapes to make snowmen. Can you guess who's snowman is who's?

We have been investigating what materials best protects an egg...

We had some very interesting discussions on how we could make sure we drop the eggs from the same point every time. After a lot of thinking, we decided we could drop it from the top of a chair. Our materials were newspaper, fabric, bubble wrap and tin foil.  Different groups had different conclusions about which material was best. We had a lot of fun unwrapping the materials to see if the egg had cracked.

'I heard a crunch so I think it has cracked' Oskar

'The egg didn't crack at all with the tin foil, its harder' Hattie

'I thought the sock would protect it more' Jacob

'The egg has completely cracked' Lola

We have been learning our Three Little Pigs story using actions

We had a visit from the wolf today!

We asked the wolf some questions we had thought of such as:

'Why did you blow the houses down?'

'Why are you so naughty?'

'Do you have another plan to catch the pigs?'

'Why did you go down the chimney and not through the door?'

A crime scene in Elm Class!

We investigated a crime scene today that included a pile of straw and sticks and some paw prints! There were many theories about what may have happened. It was revealed to be the wolf after he had blown the pigs houses down!

We learned how to be safe when chopping and grating this week by making our own soups!

The children enjoyed chopping, grating and making our own soups. We learned about the 'bridge technique' to keep our fingers safe. We also found chopping the onions a bit tricky but everyone was very brave and had a go. We also tasted our soups, tomato was the favourite!

In maths this week, we have been learning about using part part whole...

In Science we have been exploring the question 'How does smell affect our taste?'

In maths we have been looking at greater than and less than...

We have had fun being creative this week...

A nature hunt for our first week
