This week we have been looking at the story of the Gingerbread man. We talked about the part when he has to cross the river on the fox’s back and how the fox tricks him into getting nearer his mouth by telling him he might get wet. We were wondering what would have happened if he had got wet? So of course, we did an experiment.
We tested out different liquids like milk, water and golden syrup and dunked some biscuits into them to see what would happen. They all took different amounts of time to disintegrate and it was interesting to see that not all the liquids caused the biscuits to break down.
Mr Gibson from affinity water treated us to an assembly where we learnt that the average person uses 160 litres of water per day. If you don’t turn the tap off when you brush your teeth you could be wasting up to 20 litres of water a day!
Rowan class have really enjoyed learning about water today in their workshop with Affinity Water. They are certainly more aware of how to save water at home now too!
The book fair is open again this evening and all week straight after school in Larch Class!
The children learning about the problems involved with supply and demand with water!
Last week a dinosaur broke into a school hall! Year 1 have been exploring what he might have done next in our writing!
We had great fun looking at each other’s masks! Our teachers were very impressed with how much time and effort we had spent on them. Well done! We will now use them to make a display in our reading corner to remind ourselves of our favorite characters.
The children in Apple Nursery are searching for ‘The Gingerbread Man’ after realising he was missing from our classroom. He was last spotted running across the school field! Apple Nursery have created some ‘LOST’ posters and put them around the school. Please can you help us find ‘The Gingerbread Man’?
