Today P1 visited Tesco with Michael the puppet to find out what goes on behind the scenes. We learned all about what happens to the deliveries, how the shelves are filled and how tills work. We also got to feel how cold the freezer is!!
The lady from Tesco talked to us about the fruit they have and we tried some. She kindly gave us some fruit to take back to school.
Today we drew story pictures telling the story of having a snowball fight. We put lots of detail in our pictures to help us write our story and we shared them with each other. We were then able to share our friend’s story with the class.
Today we took our igloos home. We made them out of clay and had to leave them to dry for a few days before we painted them. We molded the clay with our hands and then used tools to make the blocks. We have been learning about how water changes when it gets cold and the different things we can do with it.
We had to work in groups to decide how to help our snowman not to melt. Some of us thought putting a coat on him would make him warm and so he would melt. Others thought a coat might stop him from melting so fast. Lots of us thought that using foil as a space blanket would help. We had to give our snowman a name and look after him for the day.
Our experiment showed that the snowman with the coat melted more slowly than the snowman without a coat.
