I was so proud again of the children today. They persevered so hard to create their Pom Pom chicks, sheep and bunnies. They were all so patient and lots of them helped each other. It was lovely hearing them encourage each other around Growth Mindset if they got in a tangle. Super stars!
Some of our bean plants have started growing and we have noticed some roots. The one with no water or sunlight has not grown at all. The one with just sunlight has also not grown. The one with water but no sunlight has started growing but looks very yellow. The bean with water and sunlight has a small root. What will happen next?
This week we looked at measuring length, mass and volume.
We calculated the mass of different fruit we made from playdough. The melon had to be the heaviest and the grape the lightest.
We also measured out different volumes of liquid before ordering them from the least to most in volume. It was exciting to hear children discuss why they used each container and realising that their cylinder would not be big enough to hold 1 litre.
This afternoon we tested to see which materials were waterproof and which were not. We learnt all about Charles Macintosh.
Thank you so much to our two science technicians who helped set up the experiment and carry it out.
