FAOL – Sciences – Floating and Sinking

*Successful Learners       *Effective Contributors

We tried to guess which items would float and which items would sink. We weren’t always right! Some items even floated for a wee while then sank! We had great fun. We’ve also enjoyed a treasure hunt, made ‘star’ sandwiches and made tree pictures as we explored seasons.

We collected natural items from the garden to make winter ice ornaments. We filled plastic trays with these items then filled with water. Left outside, overnight, they froze to form natural decorations which we hung in the garden. They glinted in the sunshine. If it stays cold we hope to still see them after the weekend however if it gets warmer will they melt? We’ll just have to wait and see.

 

FAOL – Sciences – Growing plants for the garden

The Stars class have planted vegetable plants in the school garden. We have planted peas, courgettes, pumpkins, carrots, onions and potatoes. We keep them well watered  and hope we will have a healthy crop of vegetables to harvest after the holidays.
