- About Us
A huge well done to all of 1L's 'Crazy Scientists' that went away and created their own science project at home in preparation for Science Week! You all put in so much thought and effort and I was extremely proud of you all!
To celebrate Science Week, Mrs Taylor set us an ice challenge!
Miss Lywood planted real life frozen dinosaur eggs in the classroom and it was 1L's challenge to help the dinosaurs escape the ice.We started to touch the eggs and noticed the ice was beginning to melt. Water was dripping all over! Miss Lywood said the ice was beginning to thaw. Our hands were melting the ice because we have warm blood inside of us. We talked about different ways we could melt the ice. We knew we had to find something warm like our hands.
Charlie said we could use hot water to melt the eggs. Miss Lywood said this could work so we got to it. We needed it to be fast so that we could free the dinosaurs. The eggs melted quickly in the warm water and the dinosaurs were free! The ice had turned back to water.
Thanks for setting us the challenge Mrs Taylor!
Later on in the week, we had a visit from the 'Science Boffins' workshop where Boffin Vicky taught us all about polymers and how to create our own slime. She also showed us lots of chemical reactions that caused fire and smoke.
This morning Year 1 hosted a reading breakfast where parents were invited in to join us for breakfast and share their favourite childhood stories. We all had a thoroughly rewarding morning and the children enjoyed spending quality time with their parents in the school environment.
A huge thank you to Mrs Hodkinson and Mr Robinson who helped ensure the breakfast ran smoothly, we couldn't have done it without you!
Thank you to parents for coming in and taking the time to read with your child this morning, the children enjoyed it immensely and were talking about it for the rest of the day. It certainly promoted a love for reading and the children enjoyed telling me all about the new stories that they had heard.
