Bluebell and Dahlia had a fantastic time in the science session led by Illumina on Tuesday afternoon, learning about DNA and how to extract it from a strawberry! There was a lot of excitement and talking for learning within the room!
Thistle Class have been learning about the weather in Science: learning to use weather tools; observing changes in the seasons; measuring precipitation; and identifying types of clouds.
Dahlia class collecting, identifying and classifying plants and animals in our local environment.
In Thistle Class, we have been learning about the Human Body. We have learned about the 5 senses and the body parts each of them are linked too. We also listened to the dancing bones song to learn the name of important bones in our skeleton, and identified them on a model skeleton.
In our learning about Light, Bluebell Class explored how reflections change in plane, concave and convex mirrors and how the length of shadows change during a morning.
Daffodil Class have been naming the different parts of the body.
Bluebell Class talked about how the smell and sight of popcorn caused us to produce saliva, before thinking carefully about the function of our different types of teeth as we ate it. We looked at our teeth in mirrors (naming incisors, canines, pre-molars and molars) and discussed which were currently wobbly, missing or growing! Jayden, Harry and Lauren brought in some very sharp shark teeth for us to look at under the visualiser, too!
