Harvest Festival

We made a bread wheat sheaf to take to our Harvest Festival in church.

Black History Month

During the first week of October we thought about Black History.  We learnt about Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, Mother Seacole and George Washington Carver.

Harriet Tubman by CL

Rosa Parks by EMW

We also looked at our own skin colours and tried to mix paints to match.  We then placed all the different colours together to show that we are all different but at the same time the same.

 

We also looked at some African paintings and masks.

 

Science

We have been thinking about the human skeleton.  We measured our friends to find the biggest bone in our body.  Then we investigated whether children with longer legs jumped further than those with shorter legs.

 

Musical Moments 

We have been discovering more about musical instruments.

 

Dental Health

Mrs French came in to talk to us about how to keep our teeth healthy. We became tooth detectives to discover how to look after our teeth.  We sorted snacks into healthy and unhealthy piles, thought about our toothbrush and how much toothpaste we should use.  We solved some puzzles to discover what a fantasy child was doing wrong and why he had to have some fillings!
