In Science today, we predicted and then investigated which materials were magnetic. The materials that were magnetic were made from
metal. However, not all the metal objects were magnetic.
Today was a fun-filled day! This morning, we dissected poo from the Mesolithic Age, Iron Age and Modern Day to see how our diets have changed over time.
In the afternoon, we had a workshop where we learned all about Pre-History (before the Romans brought writing to us). First, we looked at a time line and were amazed at how long ago the Stone Age began. We then had a go at using various tools to drill holes, make wool and make flour. We also had the opportunity to try on clothing from the Mesolithic Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age.
We had a great day yesterday celebrating European Languages Day! It was lovely to see all the children dressed in their flag colours and have some children share facts about European countries they are from or have visited. We tried lots of food and I was particularly impressed with those who tried the Sauerkraut. Then we listened to a French story and the children showed off their prior French learning. After break, we made Turkish jewellery, learnt a Romanian song and made ourselves into the Bulgarian flag. Finally, we flew to Italy and made models of the learning Tower of Pisa and a Colosseum out of newspaper.
On Tuesday, Donna from ASDA came in and let us try lots of fruit and vegetables. The children thought of great words to describe it including succulent and exotic!
