Our melting experiment!

This term our topic is called 'What is it like to live in a cold place?' The term start with a snow storm in our classroom, within the left over snow we found some frozen figures and creatures. We decided that we wanted to melt the ice to see what the figures and creatures were. After a class discussion we decided on a few different places to leave the ice within and near our classroom. We each made a prediction as to which ice block would melt first. We watched all day as the ice slowly melted away to reveal a figure or an Arctic animal. We found that above the heater was the best place to melt something quickly. 

Term 1

During term 1 we were learning all about houses and toys now and in the past. As part of our learning we enjoyed a fantastic trip to Tyntesfield, on our trip we learnt all about Victorian toys and what it might have been like to live as a Victorian child. 

We also showcased our home learning, bringing in lots of information about toys that had been played with in the past of our own families. Some of us also built our own houses.
