Our day today started with Mrs Douglas’ symmetry lesson. The class all concentrated so well on their shapes and patterns. Then it was out into the fresh air to tidy up to the Croft House doing our Redd Up. See the photo of our most unusual find! Then it was reading time followed by a lesson on alliteration. The children made up sentences about their classmates using alliteration and interesting verbs, adjectives and adverbs. After lunch, we recapped on Health & Wellbeing work from last week, relating to naming external body parts. Mrs Douglas made up a fun game that had everybody answering questions and using the correct names. It was a fun and relaxed way to learn.
Today Mrs Douglas did a science experiment with the class to find out which material would work best to black out our windows during an air raid in World War 2.
We had 4 materials to choose from. We made a hypothesis, writing down which materials would be most effective or which materials would be least effective.
Then we attached the materials to the windows and went outside to test them. From inside the classroom , Mrs Henderson shone a torch behind each material and we had to see if any light could be seen on the other side of the window.
The red cellophane was the least effective and we were surprised to find that the light was blocked by the white paper!
We are delighted to welcome Mrs Douglas into our class this term. She will be with us for 7 weeks as part of her teacher training and we are looking forward to getting to know her.
