The children have been carrying out some experiments. Yesterday they tried mixing mento’s with coke to make a volcano…it didn’t work!
Next they decided to light the fire pit and toast some marshmallows. Sticky but yummy!
Then the decided to create their own Volcano. Bhavin and the other children are going to try bicarbonate of soda and vinegar tomorrow. I wonder what will happen.
Today we have been buliding a volcano from recycled materials to make a small world for our dinsosaurs. The children discussed what the dinosaurs might like in their world and they decided on a volcano and some plants. We used the promethean board to find out more information on volcanoes and what they look like so we could make our own. We used a plastic bottle and some old newspapers to cover it. Once it is dry we are going to paint it.
Watch out for the finished product!
We have a new addition to our outdoor recycling plant wall to explore different textures. Jade decided to write numbers on the tiles. The children enjoyed creating their own water station and then explored how the water flows.
The children also joined in a bookbug session under a shelter they helped put up. Lots of cool singing and action songs.
