Science - Life Cycle of a Sunflower
We have been learning all about the life cycle of a sunflower and finding out lots of interesting facts. We looked closely at a sunflower and labelled all the different parts. Children used construction to build 3D sunflowers and also created some lovely painting and drawings of them.
Road Safety Awareness Training.
The Telford Road Safety Team visited us at school to provide a road safety awareness training session for the children.Thank you to all the parent helpers during this training session, it was greatly appreciated.
We have been finding out about litter and recycling. Class 1 received a visit from Telford and Wrekin Environmental Co-ordinator and Veolia Recycling Centre we talked about the effect of litter on the environment and how it affects the community we live in. We had a visit from 'Munch' the recycling lorry and discovered what new items could be made from recycling tin, plastic and glass with some very interesting results.
Chetwynd Deer Park
We used our problem solving skills to think of a way to collect water from the lake without going past a coned off area. Children worked in groups taping together poles with cups or bags on the end to dip into the lake and collect the water. We then had to hunt to find various items to pop into a bowl to create a magical medicine.
We also enjoyed collecting interesting items to make journey sticks, building dens for small animals and a brilliant bug hunt.
Science - 'Eggciting Discoveries'
Class 1 made decorative clay nests in the hope that it would attract an animal / bird to lay eggs in then... Guess what?...it worked!
Science - The big question
Class 1 thought of a science investigation question.
Which is the quickest way to hatch an egg?
Egg 1: In water
Egg 2: Wrapped up warm.
Egg 3: In a bug hotel.
We looked at the primary colours and discovered what new colours we could make by mixing them together.
