Dinosaur Busy Time

Posted by sandgatestarfish1 on Wednesday May 8, 2019 Under Uncategorized

We have been thoroughly enjoying immersing ourselves in dinosaur learning during Busy Time and here are a few photos of what we have been getting up to, from digging for dinosaurs and fossils, to making dinosaurs out of Lego, drawing dinosaurs on the iPad, reading dinosaur books, and using dinosaurs as manipulatives to solve maths problems.

A mystery in Foundation…

Posted by sandgatebumblebees1 on Thursday Apr 25, 2019 Under Uncategorized

On our first day back, we had an odd delivery. A box was left outside our classrooms and it had a large green egg in it! We weren’t sure where it came from, so we left it in our cosy book corner over night. The next day, when we arrived at school something strange had happened…we couldn’t go into our classrooms straight away: they had been cordoned off because we were unsure if they were safe! Something had made a huge mess in our classrooms and in our outside area! We had to work as a team to investigate what had happened.  We found chairs and tables that had been knocked over, trays that had knocked onto the floor and some GIANT FOOTPRINTS! The green egg was no where to be seen! Some of us think a dinosaur may have hatched from the egg, WATCH OUT!

On Wednesday, we enjoy an assembly all about skateboarding! We learnt how skateboards are made and enjoyed watching Jamie from the FAR Academy show us a few tricks. He even jumped over Mrs van der Wal!

British Science Week

Posted by sandgatestarfish1 on Wednesday Mar 20, 2019 Under Uncategorized

This week was British Science Week and this year’s theme was ‘journeys’. To get us exploring and discovering we took part in four experiments:

1) ‘Friction Train’
We compared how a toy train travelled down a ramp covered in different materials. We used a stopwatch to measure and compare the time it took.

2) ‘Can you cross the river?’
We used a variety of materials to see how we could transport a toy animal across the water.

3) ‘Paper Aeroplanes’
We had a go at making our own paper aeroplanes and tested how they flew!

4) ‘Liquids
We compared how different types of liquids travelled down a ramp. We made predictions about what would happen and discussed the properties of the liquids.
