Science - Seasonal Changes

Science - Seasonal Changes 3 Spring
Science - Seasonal Changes 4 Summer

We have been learning about seasonal changes in Science. 

We sorted out the months of the year into the four seasons and talked about how the weather

changes across the year. 

We have also been measuring our daily weather using a thermometer, rain gauge and anemometor,

and learning the names of different types of clouds.

We have been using the bar model to help us find number bonds.

We used the counters to split the whole number into two parts.

We had so much fun during Book Week listening to lots of stories and poems!

On Tuesday we enjoyed visiting each of the class teachers who read a different animal poem and we performed some role play.


On Wednesday we dressed up as our favourite book character and the whole school paraded their costumes in the hall. In the evening, we came back to school in our pyjamas and Miss Stewart and Mrs Lewis read us a bedtime story. We drank chocolate milk and ate biscuits before watching our teachers perform 'Giraffes Can't Dance'
