Egg-citing Egg-speriment!

We have been looking at how important it is clean our teeth. We read a story called “Give us a smile, Cinderella!” and saw how clean and sparkling Cinderella’s teeth are. We also saw her step sisters brown, rotten teeth too! Yuck!

We put an egg in water , coke and orange juice to see what would happen as the egg shell is made of calcium carbonate like the enamel on our teeth.

We left it for 5 days and were shocked by the results!

Please do not look at these photos if you are eating!

We know that to keep our teeth healthy we need to brush our teeth twice every day; once in the morning and once before bed for 2 minutes.

Successful scientists!

In Beech class, we have been looking at how germs spread. We investigated touching bread with washed, sanitised and unwashed hands!

The results were interesting. The most mould grew on the bread touched by unwashed hands and the least mould grew on bread touched by sanitised hands!

We really enjoyed finding out how important it is to keep our hands clean! Beech class are now super at washing hands for 20 seconds! Well done Beech!

DT Challenge – EYFS

We have had some fantastic entries for the DT Challenge across the school – a huge well done to every one for getting involved! Winners are being announced this week and there will be a prize for both the winner and runner-up from each Key Stage. We hope everyone enjoyed taking some time out to get creative.

Here are some example entries from EYFS.

Our run to the North Pole so far……..

Wow! The children had two extra days this week compared to last week so we expected a higher lap/mileage count but we were not expecting it to be this high! As a school we ran 7,706 laps which is 1,156 miles! So altogether we have run 1,661 miles and have 899 to go! Well done Tanners , keep it up! This week Ash class improved the most with a staggering 717 laps! The trophy goes to them this week! 

Furthest distance covered in the run to the North Pole!

The children ran so far last week covering an amazing 505 miles in 3361 laps of the daily mile track. That is a quarter of the way to the North Pole! 

Well done to Oak class who ran a staggering 461 laps , the most out of any class in the school!

Next week the trophy will be given to the most improved score! The trophy is on display in Oak class’s window. 

Maybe try running an extra lap next week!
