We are using the House of Science kit about flight. Here we are brainstorming all the things we can think of that fly. This brought up a discussion about floating vs flying.
We also had discussions about whether something moving through the air is flying or not - does that mean when you drop things they are flying as they are moving through the air?
Lots of challenging questions.
We then had to categorise a selection of flying objects. The way they categorised them varied from group to group - some man made vs animal, some needing engines etc
We are learning our spelling words everyday through a variety of fun activities. Here we are drawing them on the concrete with water and chalk. We also write on whiteboards, play board games and draw rainbow words. these are all ways you can practice them at home too.
We are filling our class with positive words of encouragement.
Here is our latest display.
The children tried out some new techniques to add pattern and texture to their painting. They also had to include patterns in some of their sunrays.
