Giraffes and Leopards had great fun in science this week. After discussing gravity, air resistance and shock absorption, each group were given an egg and a range of materials to build a contraption which would protect their egg in a fall. Each group presented their contraptions to the class and we made predictions about whether we thought the egg would survive! Some did...some didn’t!
We have had a very eventful week in Zebras. The week began by the children starting to turn their junk into model castles. It was toilet roll and masking tape galore! Thank you to all the grown-ups who inundated us with materials to use. When the castles are complete, pictures of the masterpieces will be posted. In Maths we have been learning about halving and quartering, you will no longer be able to get away with having the biggest half of the cookie! On Wednesday the children turned into explorers and went on a dragon hunt in the garden. The children were very excited to find lots of traces of the dragon’s presence, including dragon food and dragon poo! This led to some very creative writing. In the afternoon we calmed down our minds by practising our yoga moves. A big well done to all the children for their super effort in the magical phonics reading this week. We are very proud of you all. Mrs Frostick and Mrs Turner.
Koalas enjoyed their Bootcamp session this week. It was all about working together as a team and communicating with each other. We discovered that team work made challenging tasks so much easier...and more fun!
In Mandarin today the children in Meerkats, recapped the significance of the Dragon Boat festival and how it commemorates Qu Yuan. They also recapped the meaning of the colours in China. The children then coloured or designed their own Dragon Boat, justifying why they had used certain colours and saying them in Mandarin.
