Wednesday 13th November - Today we checked our 4 trees to see if there had been any changes. We noticed that the Lime and the Whitebeam had lost most of their leaves and discussed what deciduous meant. In the classroom we continued our tests on the acorns that we collected last week. We placed them in a bucket of water knowing that the viable ones would sink. As a class we discussed what we could do with the good acorns and recorded our ideas on a wonderwall.
Thursday 7th November: Today we went on an acorn hunt within the conservation area. We also checked to see the differences in our four trees. Once we had collected lots of acorns we returned to the classroom and tested them in several ways to see if they might be able to grow into an oak tree. We have one final test to conduct next week.
17th October 2019 - Today we made some leaf rubbings from our 4 trees (the Willow, Whitebeam, Silver Birch and Lime) having looked to see what differences have started to happen since last week. We also planted some seeds, we talked about what a seed needs to grow and how to follow instructions. Some children went on to create their own method for planting. Well done everyone for lots of hard work - Mrs Davenport
10th October 2019 - today we looked at four trees in our grounds. This will form part of our longitudinal study over the coming months. The children looked at the Willow, Whitebeam, Silver Birch and Lime tree. They have chosen one to study and completed a data sheet of information.
3rd October 2019 - Science lesson; identifying trees in our school grounds.
Wednesday 25th September - Today we continued to look at measurement. The children used rulers, metre sticks and their feet to measure a variety of objects inside and outside of the classroom. As a class we measured the hall (estimating the length first) using trundle wheels and a large measuring tape. The children all worked so hard that everyone was a Superstar! Well done to you all! Mrs Davenport
Thursday 12th September - As part of our outdoor skills days we collected data on a tally chart of our birthdays in class. We talked about seasons and what months each season contains. We then made a bar chart on the playground to show how many of us had birthdays in each season.
