Busy afternoon outside

Date: 1st Nov 2018 @ 9:00pm

Today we made the most of the sunny but fresh Autumn weather and spent all afternoon outside. As part of our book this week 'Whatever Next' and space topic, we conducted an experiment. Our task was to find the most suitable material for teddies new space helmet. We decided it had to be waterproof and sturdy so tested lots of materials and discussed their properties. (See if they can remember the 'clever' word we used for soaks up... absorbs!) We made lots of predictions, tested our materials, recorded our results and shared our own opinions. 

The children also created a huge rocket outside and had some great imaginative play, as well as some reception children building their own from 2D and 3D shapes in maths as they identified shapes and some of their properties.

Others opted for a chance to do some gardening or to create some structures! Lots of discussion about valleys were had so we may have to squeeze in some glaciation into our journeys topic this half term, discovering how our beautiful local landscape was created with the journey of ice!

The children have been really engaged and enthusiastic about the topic so far so me and Mrs Walker are planning some more exciting learning opportunities and activities surrounding space for next week too!
