Beige is tired of playing second fiddle to BrownBlue needs a break from colouring in all that water, while Pink just wants to be used. Green has no complaints, but Orange and Yellow are no longer speaking to each other.

It's Science Week!


We begun our week by learning about seeds and what plants need to grow. We planted our own cress seeds and put our plants in different locations; under on the sink and on the window sill. We will see which plant grows the best!

We went on a tree hunt around school grounds to see if we could identify any deciduous or evergreen trees by their leaves. We then observed the leaves closely to see if we could identify their properties. 

Today we identified the different parts of a plant by dissecting them. We observed them closely and discussed our findings with our friends. 


In our lesson today, we learnt 'what makes a good friend' and discussed what to do when problems may arise in our friendships. The children went outside and drew around one another before filling their outline with words to describe their friends.

Today we were thinking about our worries. We shared times we felt worried and discussed how it made us feel. We then went outside and closed our eyes to think of something we are worried about. Miss Cunningham blew bubbles and we popped our worry bubbles and felt our worries dissapear. 


Today we have been using a world map to locate the United Kingdom and the countries that are a part of the United Nations.
