The boys in Primary D were busy last week filling our ‘Pot Buddies’ with pretty plants for the Garden Fayre.
We have been focusing on different things that you can see in the sky during night and day. The children loved lying outside on the grass (during a gorgeous sunny day) looking up at the sky to see what they could see. We were very lucky and saw a few planes, birds, butterflies, bees and even a paraglider!
Primary C has been busy exploring Spring. We have been ‘nature detectives’, both in our school sensory garden and out in the community during our road safety walks, searching for signs of Spring! We have also been investigating some of our nature finds back in class and even using them as an art material.
Check out our Grasshoppers!
Lots of fun today during our ‘The Sky’s the Limit’ topic work exploring Venus with Astro Ted! We found out that Venus is the second plant from the sun, is covered in clouds and is incredibly hot. We also carried out some science experiments in class to represent volcanos – which there are lots of on Venus.
We then moved into the sensory studio to explore our own planets and stars that we painted, which glowed beautifully under the ultra violet light! To finish up our fun in the sensory studio we had great time using the different Space games on Magic Carpet!
