Today we have been testing materials and friction. We needed to find out which was the best material to make a ramp for our teddies and their sleds. We tested foam, sandpaper, felt, Lino and carpet. We found out that the materials that were smooth had less friction made the sled slide quickly and the bumpy materials had more friction and made the sled slide slowly.
The Big Bad Wolf came into our classroom this week and made a mess of the classroom! The children were shocked when they came back in from break to find our classroom turned upside down! We were able to create some wanted posters to catch the beastly wolf - you can see them on our classroom window!
We have been learning how to count one more and one less!
This week, we went into the woods and sorted lots of different materials!
Some of us have been building stick houses in our forest area. We worked in teams and had to see if we could make our houses super strong. We tested them by huffing and puffing just like the Big Bad Wolf!
Today some have us have been sorting materials into different groups. We were given a basket full of different objects and had to decide with our partners which groups to sort them into. Can you guess what our groups were?
This week, the children have been exploring their classroom and are getting to know the different areas. We have talked about the class rules and have written about what we did in the summer holidays. Class 1SC have also been looking at pencil control, counting and describing different materials.
Below are some pictures taken from this week.
We have been practising our fabulous counting skills!
We have been learning how to control our pencil!
