The Comets have been planting sunflower seeds this week. We are talking about what plants need to grow. Can you tell us two things they will need?
Wet and dry painting requires a lot of concentration as you can see. We used an icing sugar wash and flicked dry powder paint onto one half and wet paint on to the other.
We have been investigating materials…
to see which are waterproof
Here we are making shapes in puddles
with the ducks who came to look!
Welcome to Priory Car wash
We can offer a wash and polish to make your car shine. Don’t forget to squeeze the sponge!
Mars children were challenged to find a waterproof material to make teddy an umbrella. What fun we had !
Perhaps you could search for more waterproof materials at home?
This week we shared the book ‘Can’t you sleep little bear?’ by Martin Waddell we focussed on the opposite ‘Day and Night’. We looked at letters we post and how they are sorted on the night train by postal workers.
Here is Alexcia in our Post Office
We have been using chalk to create handwriting patterns on our bears.
Perhaps you would like to talk about nocturnal animals together. Mars children have used the internet to learn all about them.
Next week we shall be investigating ‘wet and dry’.
This story fitted well with our Happy and sad week. Dave loses his favourite soft toy ‘Dogger’ and his big sister Bella saves the day. Mars children looked at the happy and sad points in the story, whilst Comet children made a happy and sad face puppet to take home.
Next week our opposite to investigate will be day and night. Maybe you can talk about animals who come out at night and jobs people do through the night.
