Wednesday 16th February 2022

Tomorrow we are sending home our class book from this half term. We have really enjoyed reading 'Lost and Found' and have learnt lots about penguins and Antarctica. Ask your child something they have enjoyed or learnt about our topic you will be very impressed.

Today we had a visit from Mel who works for Northumbria University. She came to share with us some exciting information about Antarctica. We had great fun being scientists and even took part in a fun experiment about melting ice. If you would like to try the experiment at home I will put a link to the instructions here it was super fun and easy.

Science materials visitor 

On Thursday we had a very special guest to our class room from Newcastle University. We spent the afternoon being material engineers and carrying our experiments. We has to weigh the different materials to find out which was the heaviest or lightest, we then has to test to see if they were magnetic and if they could conduct electricity. We has to make our own predictions about what might happen before the test just like scientist need to do. Overall we had an amazing time, what a great start to our new topic!

Welcome back year 1!

We hope you had a fantastic holiday and had lots of fun. We are back hard at work and looking forward to all of the exciting activities and topics we have this term.
