IDL/THEME – FARM TO FORK

*Successful Learners*  *Confident Individuals*

The Sungazers have started our new topic ‘Farm to Fork’ and have been learning all about where our food comes. We have been discussing foods that we like & dislike, as well as foods that we think are good for our bodies.

We made a fresh snack using Farm produced foods:

We continued practising our life skills by making our own Pig Biscuits. We used a mixture of healthy and sugary foods and talked about how it is good to eat sweet treats in moderation. These treats were more of a hit in the class, believe it or not!

 

 

WELCOME BACK SUNGAZERS!

*Confident Individuals* *Successful Learners* *Effective Contributors*

The Sungazers have settled into their new classroom & school routine very well. We read the story ‘Giraffe’s Can’t Dance’ and talked about all of things that we can do if we work hard! We also used Science to see if we could make raisins dance inside a bottle full of lemonade – this was fascinating!

We have enjoyed plenty of Art activities to brighten up our classroom and the Wee Den. The class have let Miss. McCreath know that they all really enjoy Science so we’ve already had plenty of science experiments and messy play!

We have a lot of photos to share next week. Have a great weekend!

We have been completing lots of great outdoor learning activities for POLO day.  We enjoyed exploring the water wheel for science and playing games with water balloons.  We also had our snack outside and had fun with the parachute and making dens.

We were delighted to share our superhero and special powers with our friends in class. We are all real-life superheroes and enjoy helping others. See our photos below of some excellent team work.

 

Sungazer’s Science

Week beginning Monday 17th May

 The Sungazers were ‘Confident Individuals’ as they took part in our explosive science activity. They had great fun at our hands-on science session which responded to the children’s natural curiosity.  They used simple every day ingredients and made their own volcanoes, developing skills of observation, prediction and team work.

              

Sungazers FAOL – Science in Class – Slime

The Sungazers Class love science and have all participated in various science activities over the term, making lava lamps, volcanoes, sensory snow, and slime. Their favourite experiment is making the cornflour slime as not only is it a good sensory science activity, it’s also good messy fun!

The boys are now able to follow the steps and make their own slime with minimal assistance.

Sungazers FAOL – Sciences – Weather – Tornado in a Jar

The Sungazers Class have enjoyed exploring different weather types through various science experiments.  This week we watched a video all about torandos then had a go at making our own ‘tornados in a jar’ using vinegar, water, food colouring and liquid soap.  We even added some sequences to see them get sucked up into our torando.  It was great fun!
