Science 18.01.22

We started our new unit on 'Animals and Humans' by having a WOW moment with a dog making a guest appearance in our class. We had such a lovely afternoon and really enjoyed the dogs visit and got to ask lots of questions about the dog. We even got to stroke the dog!


We have been learning about the Jewish festival of Hannukah. We discussed how light is an important part of the festival and the meaning behind it. We really enjoyed looking at some artefacts from the festival and discussed what they are used for and what they represent.

We all really liked the Menorah and worked really hard to decorate our own Menorah. We shared them with the rest of the class. Here are a few.


We have continued to learn about Seasons. We observed the changes in nature. We looked at the temperature, wind speed, leaf colour and what mini beasts we could find to help us. We recorded our findings. 

We also learnt why trees shed their leaves in Autumn. We then all did some drawings to show how trees change with the season.


Over the past few weeks we have been reading the book Corduroy by Don Freeman. We have been learning how to ask questions and use adjectives to describe the characters. We have all been working hard to plan and write our own version of this story.

We have been learning about the Jewish festival Sukkot. We discovered that this is all about how they celebrate their harvest festival. We leaned that they make a Sukkah outside and they eat and sleep in it for 7 days. 

Today we went outside and worked in small groups to build our own Sukkot. We had lots of fun!
