We were set the challenge to create a boat to float on a chocolate river! Firstly, we looked at different materials then predicated what materials would float or sink. The children made a boat ready for the science competition.
We designed and made fruit kebab rockets. We practiced our cutting skills to make the fruit just how we wanted. We then got to eat them and they were yummy!
In English we are focusing on instructions. We followed the instructions in the wrong order, we all made different jam sandwiches!
Today as part of our healthy eating week we enjoyed some fruit tasting. We had lots of different fruits including strawberries, blackberries, grapes, bananas and grapes. Lots of the children decided that strawberries were their favourite.

As part of our health and safety week the children made a healthy strawberry and banana smoothie. Children enjoyed drinking it and said they will make it again!
Today we all planted a runner bean. We are going to keep a diary to see how it grows over the next few weeks.
Our new story for the next few weeks is Mrs Armitage on Wheels, today we read the story and the children acted out different parts of the story. Can you guess what they are?
The children went on an array hunt around the school, they found lots of different arrays. They then went and made different arrays using objects.

The children found a parachute, aeroplane, hot air balloon and some pictures on the school muga. We wondered how and why they were there. In PE we used the parachute to play lots of different games.
Today for our Topic lesson Buttercups learnt all about the history of flight. In pairs we made model aeroplanes and rockets and flew them on the playground to see which design flew the furthest.
