Disaster struck today as one's Royal headgear was blown clean orf in a bitter North Easterly wind.
Our regal class members could be seen clambering after their crowns as they twirled and spiraled around the playground, over the climbing frames and under the shelter.
"I can't catch mine!" exclaimed King Hassan.
"This wind does not even respect a queen!" shouted Queen Tanya.
Never mind. We had jolly wheeze trying to catch them! I can't wait to read our stories.
From experiments to demonstrations and a stay and read making paper aeroplanes, what an inquisitive week we had!
Thanks to Hafsah (our scientist of the week) for teaching us about dissolving salt in water which helped clear up the mystery of the floating eggs. Ali and Kareem from Y6 were amazing science teachers demonstrating different concepts to us and providing a few surprises.
And finally. thanks to all our visiting mums and dads for helping make our paper aeroplanes fly!
We have only read the first few pages and have inferred that someone has stolen the Queen's knickers! Who would do such a terrible thing?
We pretended that class 2S stole the knickers and have written a ransom note to the Queen. We have been incredibly bossy in our writing and made some very interesting demands...
Have a look at our FANTASTIC writing. Can you spot some expanded noun phrases? Has anyone used the suffix -ly? Have they used a range of punctuation?
Urgh! 2S have been learning all about germs.
So, what are germs?
Germs are tiny microbes or living organisms. They are everywhere and can be spread easily from person to person. But remember, not all germs are bad. Some types of germs can be found in bread and cheese. Some germs can also be found in medicines that are used to make us better.
We carried out a science investigation to find out how the bad germs are spread and the importance of washing our hands regularly. As germs are invisible we used glitter instead.
We worked in partners for our investigation. Our partner took a pinch of glitter and placed it on one of our hands. We clenched our hand and when we opened it we noticed that the germs had spread all over our hand. Then we rubbed our hands together and guess what? The germs spread to the other hand. We tried to get rid of the germs with a paper towel but it was very difficult. Instead, we had to wash our hands with soap and water to completely get rid of the germs!
We had a lot of fun reading our book written in bug language 'Du iz tak?'
The Whole School did work all day about the same book .
We had an Anchor session with George and we managed to act out the whole book in groups.
Here are most of our costumes that we wore on Thursday. Can you spot all the different characters?
Our dance lessons have taken inspiration from Chinese New Year celebrations. We watched some Chinese dragon dances then discussed the different types of movements they use. We found out they have quick and slow movements. In our partners we tried to create some movements that use skipping, jumping, crawling and twirling. Over the past few weeks we have built on our different movements and tried to create something that resembles a group dragon dance.
