We are scientists

This week we conducted our first science experiment: does our hoods or hat prevent us from hearing the whistle at play time? We started by listening for different sounds and identifying how they help us. We then spoke about what could prevent us from hearing the whistle at playtime, such as children shouting, children running, wearing ear muffs etc. Finally we had a go at playing outside without our hoods and listening for the whistle and then with our hoods listening for the whistle. Ask your child what the outcome was…

In maths we have been looking at solving problems with our number bonds to 5. The first problem was to work out how many ways they could score 5 when playing a game of skittles. The children loved playing skittles and noting down all the different ways! 

For topic this week, and celebrating black history month, we looked at Claudia Jones who spoke about the right for equality no matter what race or gender people are in the 1950s. She started the Caribbean carnival. It is now known as the Notting hill carnival. The Children had a a go at making a carnival headdress to temper Claudia Jones.
