Eggstra special science investigations


Today we planned and carried out an investigation into the very best material to protect our penguin egg.  We look closely at the properties of the different materials - flexibility, waterproofing, insulating and then thought about how we could test each material to protect our real eggs!  (no real penguins were harmed in this experiment!)


We really had fun working out how to keep the test fair and how to make sure we gave each material a fair chance to protect the egg.  Here we are enjoying our 'eggsperiment'.  Cotton wool, wool and bubble wrap were our winners!

Look who we found flying around our room....

This morning we discovered a new member of Squirrel class! Soaring over our tables, Mrs Gow managed to capture a quick video snippet of a 'dragon' - yes, a dragon- flying around our room. We thought it might be a snow dragon brought in with our new class igloo, but we decided it might be visiting because we are reading about the Space-bat-angel-dragon in 'The Iron Man'. Whatever, his reason for visiting we were certainly excited and we have all written some amazing descriptions of our own dragons. Look out for daily tweets with lines from our stories.

We're going on a bear hunt...

Where is Balderstone bear?


Squirrel class went hunting for Balderstone bear today.  We had heard that Balderstone bear had not been seen for a while, so we went out into the school grounds to see if we could find him.  We found lots of clues and had to use our senses to find the matching pictures. We did find Balderstone by our friendship bench.  Perhaps he's feeling like he needs a bit more attention.  Watch this space for our stories....
