Germs, germs, germs!

Ash class has been exploring germs this morning. Ms Schofield started by touching everyone with glitter so they could see how germs spread. The children then took part in three activities:

1. Children chose either milk and glitter or water and black pepper. They put a finger into the liquid and talked about the ‘germs’. They then chose a squirt of antibacterial or non-antibacterial soap, put their finger back into the bowl and watched the ‘germs’ disperse. Why not try this at home.

2. Children looked at pictures of hands. They talked about which ones they thought were clean or not clean. We talked about not being able to see germs so even the clean hands might have germs on them.

3. When the children came into school this morning they were all asked to touch a piece of bread. In groups they repeated this and predicted what might happen to the bread. We will keep you updated! At home look at the photo and make your own predictions.

Have you seen the Gingerbread Man?

Apple Nursery have been learning about ‘The Gingerbread Man’ this week. Yesterday he escaped from the classroom and we looked all over the school to try to find him! The CCTV video showed him running outside Nursery. We tried finding some clues about where he had gone. We thought he might have broken the goalposts and we found crumbs in the infant gazebo where he must have eaten his breakfast!

Then we made some ‘LOST’ posters to let other people know to look for him too.

UFOh no!

This morning on her way to work Miss Bennett was horrified to see an alien spaceship zoom over Tanners Wood. Year three went to investigate and were amazed when they discovered a strange, green egg in the KS1 playground. Where did the egg come from? What is the strange noise that keeps coming from the sky? Where is the UFO now? Year 3 will continue to report on the incident and hopefully more information will be revealed soon…
