Sport Relief πŸƒ‍♀️ πŸƒ‍♂️ 
We came to school in our sports clothes. We challenged ourselves to run a mile around our playground area. We all tried our very best! We know that exercise is good for our body. We talked about the effects of exercise on our body and the different types of exercise and sports that we like to take part in. We were proud to raise money for charity.

British Science Week

We enjoyed being Scientists this week!

We went on a Rainbow Walk around school. Our challenge was to find objects for all of the colours of the rainbow. We worked together with our partner and found lots of natural and man made objects. Back in class we sorted the objects to make a rainbow. 

We investigated how to make bubbles of different shapes and sizes. We made our own bubble wands. We had lots of fun making big bubbles using the hoops!

People who help us

We have started our new topic People who help us. We have been talking about all of the people who help us in our lives, from the Police, fire fighters, doctors, dentists, even our teachers and parents. We have been working with our friends to tell a story about an emergency in our small world. It is lots of fun being doctors and nurses in the Doctor’s Surgery. In maths we have been learning our doubles facts. We been Doubling Detectives and we have used our finger prints or numicon to solve the doubles problems.

Red day & Number day
We came to school in our red clothes to raise money for people with heart problems. We talked about where our heart is in our body and it’s how important it is. We also had fun doing lots of number activities. We decorated numbers, made a big numberline and completed maths games. We also voted for our favourite Frozen characters and made a big bar chart. We counted the number of votes and we could talk about which character was the most popular.

RBB keeping our hearts healthy.

Elsa’s ice challenge ❄️ 

This week we have been scientists! We received a special box from Elsa from Frozen. She had accidentally frozen her friends in the ice and asked for our help! We thought of different ways to melt the ice and rescue the characters. We worked together testing out our ideas such as rubbing, tapping, pouring on water, putting salt on and putting it in the sun. We were very excited when we had finally rescued all of the characters! We thought of words to describe the ice and discussed which method worked the best to melt the ice.

We have been carefully writing their names and creating polar animal art. We have enjoyed acting out the story of ‘The polar bear and the snow cloud’.

Our Winter walk ❄️ 

We went outside on a very cold day. Jack Frost had been out! We looked for the signs of Winter. We found frost on the leaves and grass. When we touched the frost it started to melt and turned into water. We left footprints in the frost. It was so cold we could see our breath!

The witch from Room on the Broom left some ingredients and a colour mixing challenge for the children. The children had to mix different colours to find out which colours they made. The children then got to mix ingredients to make their own magical exploding potions.
