We are going to write non-chronological reports on Whales next week and this week we began learning information about them. However, some children said they would like to find out some more information. This picture is a link to the WWF website and a lot more information.

Inspire Workshop

There is an inspire workshop, on Wednesday 25th April. The workshop will involve making boats.

The children have designed what they wish their boat to look like and have brought their designs home to share with you. They have made a list of things they think they will need such as: margarine tubs, cardboard, tinfoil, cling film, straws, paper, cocktail sticks, string, amongst other things.

I have spoken to the children about discussing their ideas with you and how they may need to adapt their designs. Feel free to edit and amend the designs together.

Please do not  make anything prior to coming in, but please bring in any appropriate resources that you will need for your child’s boat. If you have an extra containers they are always appreciated. Thank you.

Water Transportation Experiment

Here is a similar version of the experiment we did in class today. Maybe you would like to carry your own experiment at home and let us know how it turned out. I wonder if a different colour of food colouring would have an effect. What about the size of the stalk?

Let me know your results.

  1. Celery Experiment

    Step 1

    Gather your materials.

  2. Celery Experiment

    Step 2

    Cut about one inch off the bottom of four celery stalks.

  3. Celery ExperimentStep 3

    Fill each jar about halfway with water. Then, drip a few drops of food colouring into each glass.

  4. Celery Experiment

    Step 4

    Stick the celery stalks in the coloured water and let them sit for about 20 minutes.

  5. Celery Experiment

    Tip!

    Rip open 1 or 2 of the celery stalks to better see how the color travels through the stalks.

  6. Celery ExperimentStep 5

    Come back to the celery after 20 minutes and check out the stalks! What do you see? Colour should start to appear in little dots on the ends of them!

World Book Day

Tomorrow is our rescheduled world book day. Please come in costume or mufti. Can you bring in your favourite book too as we will share these during the day.

Can’t wait to see everyone’s outfits!
