For kindness week, we were all ‘secret guardian angels.’ We picked names out of a hat and had to look after that person all week. We had to keep it a secret by not only being kind and looking after the person we had chosen, but disguising it by being nice to everyone, too. At the end of the week we guessed who our guardian angel had been. Whenever we thought our guardian angel had helped us we wrote it down. Look at what a kind class we are!
ROCKS AND SOIL
We learnt about all the different layers of soil... then, we made them!
Starting from the very bottom layer, we used broken biscuits for the bedrock.
Marshmallows for the parent material.
Coco pops for the subsoil (with added strawberry lace worms)
and crumbled up cake for the topsoil.
We started Science week by investigating rocks. Testing which are the hardest, which are permeable (allow water to pass through) and which fizz when the make contact with acidic liquids such as vinegar. We were real scientists and made sure each test was fair, making predictions and observations. Even though classroom STUNK of vinegar!!!
