Week 5 Term 3

This week we worked together as a team to create a giant collage of Elmer the Elephant. Look how it grew and grew during the week. Pop in and see the finished work in Room 10.

The Key Competency of 'Relating to Others' was a focus in all our P.E. sessions this week working as teams with our classmates on a  hoop challenge .........

......and in pairs with our big buddies from Room 5 who helped us develop our skipping confidence.

At the start of our Animal Inquiry we looked at living and non-living things. One of the questions that came out of this was whether flowers were still alive if they were cut and put in water. We investigated this by popping some cut flowers into coloured water. They soon changed colour as they took up the water and after 4 days are still alive. Our estimates of how long the flowers will live for range from 2 days to 1 million days...this could be a long experiment!

 Also as part of our Animal Inquiry we were very lucky to have a cold blooded visitor in the form of a Bearded Dragon. Well done everyone in Room 10 for having a go at touching this scaly reptile.
Finally during Friday's Discovery Time we had a demonstration from some Renwick 1 expert book makers and can now make our own books from an A4 sheet of paper.
