A round up of our weekly classroom news!

RD have loved teaching phonics to our friends!

A big bad wolf left a mess in our classroom! We decided we had to set a trap. 

The children in year 2 had a very exciting science lesson this week!

2R – We had to test if oil and water would mix. We noticed that the oil bubbled and left a thin layer at the top and did not mix with the water. 

2C -enjoyed seeing what happens when you mix oil and water in Science this week. We learned that people used to rub oil onto their clothes to make them waterproof! A man named Charles Macintosh invented a waterproof coat nearly 200 years ago so thankfully we don’t have to do that anymore! 

4S have been having lots of fun in Science this week making circuits.

5W Had the task of creating a scene of a miserable city in English
