Another great time at Film Club!
Last week Alma hosted a fantastic Jewish Care Bake Day. All three year groups participated in baking cakes, cookies and biscuits. A big thank you to everyone who purchased one of the bake off delights as well as to our parent volunteer who kindly donated all the baking ingredients. All contributions went towards raising vital funds for Jewish Care.
|It's been so exciting to watch the caterpillars transform into butterflies. The children learnt all about the lifecycle of how a caterpillar becomes a butterfly and they enjoyed watching the butterflies emerge from the chrysalis. We were happy to release the butterflies into the wild but sad to say goodbye. Hopefully they will come back and visit us some time!|
Last week we welcomed Rukhsana, who came in and spoke to all three classes about Islam. Rukhsana talked to us about the 5 pillars of faith in Islam:
2. Fasting-in the Ramadan month.
3. Making Haj-this involves visiting a holy place in Saudi Arabia.
4. Giving to charity.
5. Belief in one God and Muhammad is his prophet-we saw Arabic writing and heard her make the declaration outloud.
|We did an experiment where we learnt about how spiders catch their prey and don't get stuck
on their sticky webs themselves. We also predicted and then explored what happens when we put
paper towels into a water and food colouring mixture. When we put each end of the paper towel into
a different colour at the same time, the mixture travelled up each end of the paper towel and
mixed to create a new colour in the middle!
|Reception were lucky to have a visit from a science teacher from Archer.
Mr Wick came to teach us all about the life cycle of a butterfly.
The children got the chance to look at a butterflies wing though a microscope.
The children then created the different parts of the life cycle using play dough.
It was so much fun to have a science teacher teach reception.
|Today, we created a dancing raisin experiment by putting raisins into lemonade and observing them "dance" as the Carbon Dioxide was released from the bottle. We then made slime, using PVA glue, water, liquid starch and food colouring before using our senses to describe what it felt, looked and smelt like! It was very messy! We also experimented by adding different food colourings to change the colour of the slime. We made our predictions together about what would happen when we mixed the different materials and discussed our observations.|
