1st Class/2nd Class
First and Second Class had a fantastic time last week when we visited Stratford College for some fun friendship games and activities. A huge thank you to the staff and pupils who organised and took part in this event - we loved it!
In science, First and Second Class have been discussing atoms and how they affect the states of matter. We also learned that a polymer is like a 'string' of atoms. To explore this idea, we conducted an experiment where we filled a plastic bag with water and then pierced it with sharp pencils. It didn't pop or leak! The polymers in the plastic 'hugged' the pencils, creating a seal. We had lots of fun making guesses, working in groups, observing what happened, and writing up our experiments like real scientists.
First and Second Class created paper mosaics recently. Have a look at us making them, and a few of the finished products!
To celebrate Computer Science Education Week (4th- 10th of December) as well as Europe Code Week (7th-22nd of December), First and Second class have taken part in coding workshops with Ms. Ryan over the past few days. We are having lots of fun!
Margaret from the D.S.P.C.A. visited us recently and brought along some (not so) little friends. We were all excited to hold the Giant African Snails and watch them slowly come out of their shells as they felt the warmth of our hands.
