Welcome to Squirrels Class Blog
We have been planting some runner bean seeds and pumpkin seeds in the raised beds outside the classroom. We are looking forward to watching them grow.
The year two’s had a visit from a lady from the fire brigade today. She taught them how to make an emergency telephone call and what to do if there is a fire in your house.They learned about the stop,drop and roll technique. Some of them tried on some fire brigade uniforms ,they were very heavy.
The year 1’s and 2’s enjoyed a science day on Monday. They took part in 4 different activities: 1.Making balloon powered cars. 2.Making gliders and aeroplanes. 3.Learning about how our sense of smell works and guessing the identity of 16 different foods and liquids by just using our noses. 4.An I Spy Scavenger hunt around the school grounds looking for different animals and plants.
The ducklings have all grown so much and we couldn’t resist having a cuddle before they go back to the farm.
We have been using the I pads to research information about ducks and ducklings. We are going to use the information to make our own facts files.
Rabbits and Squirrels have been learning about how medicines can be used to keep us healthy and make us feel better when we’re poorly.
We all enjoyed dressing up in red and wearing our red noses.
In Year 2 this week we have been learning how to measure things in centimetres. We had great fun measuring different items we found around our classroom with a ruler and measuring each other with a tape.
What can you make out of natural materials you find around you? Take a look at what the Squirrels class made during this weeks during Forest School.
We all had a great time celebrating World Book Day. We really enjoyed sharing our own favourite books with are friends.
