Double Trouble!

This week we have started looking at multiplication. Reception have been learning how to double numbers! We've been using our doubling machine to help us. We also went outside and used different objects to show doubles, we each had a go at writing the number sentence to go with it. Year 1s have been building arrays. We started looking at [...]

Playing in the Willow…

We know the Willow has a bit of growing to do before the houses, tunnel and discovery wall are complete. However, we couldn't resist taking the children up to the Forest Village today to show them. We are so glad that we did. The children were so excited about the new structures and it filled us with so much joy [...]

Which material works best as an umbrella?

In Science we have been learning about materials. We wanted to find out which materials were waterproof. We came up with an experiment to find the best material to use as an umbrella. We tested; paper, card, tissue, paper-towel, fabric and plastic. We each made our own predictions before we started. 'My prediction is that the cardboard is waterproof' 'My [...]

How would you wash a fluffy penguin chick?

Class 2 were learning how to write instructions. We had lots of fun finding out how to do it and came up with some great ideas… e.g. someone thought it was going to be a ‘catastrophe’ ‘dunking’ him into the warm, bubbly, fresh water but some children came up with a great idea of adding salt and ice. Eventually, we [...]

Izzy the Ice-cube came to visit Class 2 from the South Pole today!

We needed to learn quickly how to protect her from the heat. We chose materials to wrap her in and created a fair test. We then made predictions about which one would be the winner. The materials were a woolly blanket, bubble wrap and tin foil. Which one do you think will be the winner…?   Everyone was surprised including [...]
