Science - Seasonal Changes

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'

Measuring in Maths

We measured how much water was in our water bottles and wrote the amount in millilitres on our whiteboards.

 

We also weighed objects we found around the classroom. We learnt that weight is measured in grams and kilograms. Take a look below!

School Trip to the Cutty Sark

We had a great time visiting the Cutty Sark and the National Maritime museum.

We learnt where the Cutty Sark had sailed and saw lots of figureheads from different ships. Afterwards we made our own figureheads using a wooden spoon, felt, stickers and string. 

 

Thank you to the parent helpers who came along with us!
