To we have been scientists. We conducted 'the bread experiment'. This involved putting a controlled piece of bread in a sealed bag. We then passed a piece of bread around the class and put that into a bag. Finally we washed our hands (to get rid of germs) and passed another piece of bread around the class and placed that into a sealed bag. 

The children then wrote their own prediction about what is going to happen to the pieces of bread.

Below are some photographs of the water (after washing hands) YUK! The pieces of bread and the children touching the bread! We will keep you updated with the progress and final results of our experiment.

We had a science afternoon today all about our senses. We had a smelling station, tasting station, listening station and feeling station.  The children really enjoyed the unknown when putting their hand into the feely box and being blindfolded when tasting food. Here are some photographs of the session.

Today we had a visitor from Leeds Museum who brought in some artefacts from a long time ago to celebrate 100 years since World War One. We spoke about peace and how peace came after the war. We looked at medals, song sheets, poppies and cups.

Today we celebrated European Languages day. We focused on Spain, we looked at a map of Europe and located Spain. We also spoke about which countries bordered Spain. We then learnt a little bit of Spanish, the children knew lots of words already and here are some we knew. One of the children then taught us a song and dance he had learnt at a mini disco whilst on holiday! We made flags and sung some Spanish songs.
