Take a look at what we have been up to:

I am amazed at the level of co-operation, stickability and creativity that the children have shown in their recent dance sessions. Today, we did our final dance! It was too good to not show you. I feel very proud of them all – some great links to our seasons of the year!

We’ve been looking at e-Safety recently in Computing. We’ve explored some different ways of using the internet and computers safely and have identified some of the main features of staying safe online. The children were given a task to produce a poster aimed at a child in another year group. Lyra, in particular, took this challenge on well. She came up with some fantastic tips – see the video below!

Science was a fruity session! We began to look closely at the healthy eating and how different liquids and foods can affect our teeth. We completed an egg shell experiment, soaking an egg shell in a range of different liquids, including cola, lemonade, apple juice and a sugary energy drink. We are going to leave these soaking in the liquids for the whole half term and look closely at the impact this is going to have on them.

We first explored the egg shells…

Then we began our experiments!

We also made some fruit kebabs in Science. The children chose from some of their favourite fruits including strawberries, grapes, pineapple, mango, banana and more. They chose their own and built these. They were then able to think about what they thought was the most beneficial to the teeth and body before eating these as a healthy snack.

We also made some incredible shields – look at our finished products!

Our outdoor PE continued to look at hockey skills, developing some more invasion and passing. The children are getting closer to having a small game planned against one another.

 

Have a great February half term, Ash Class!
