Woodland Walk

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!

Woodland Walk

Today the children were learning about different kinds of trees and how we can identify them by looking at their leaves.  They went on a leaf treasure hunt to match up real leaves to our leaf identification

sheet.

Later we created some art using the leaves and extra materials we found.

Science day

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 !

Woodland Walk

We had a fantastic time in the woods today using things we could find around us to learn about Ordinal Numbers. The children were able to place items correctly on Number Lines and use appropriate language.  All were rewarded with some free play where dens were made, worms found and games made up!

Mrs Partis visits !

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.
