Today we have printed using them. They look really good.
Wow, how much fun we had making capital letters for our days of the weeks by using all sizes of sticks. Some children even wrote whole words or constructed giant letters! One group found alliteration words for their days of the week and presented them to the whole class. Very impressive!
A giant S !
Today is science day and we have been looking at how food travels around the world and arrives in our supermarkets. We looked at food packaging and thought about why it is used.
This afternoon we did our first scientific experiment. We planned an investigation in small groups to find which packaging would be best to protect a strawberry. We chose 2 types of packages and wrapped up a strawberry. Mrs Barratt then dropped it and we looked to see how bruised it was !
We were lucky today to have a visit from Mrs Partis who has recently returned from a trip to Australia. She showed us lots of excellent pictures and told us all about her adventure. The children were very interested and asked lots of great questions – well done Sycamore !
We were disappointed to hear that in fact Wombats are very grumpy and smelly . Mrs Partis much preferred the koalas.
