Science Day - Melting Chocolate and Baking Biscuits
Last Tuesday, the whole school had a Science Day.
We melted chocolate to decorate biscuits with.
Then we made icing and it turned to a liquid.
We made dough for biscuits.
Then we baked them and they went hard.
We enjoyed eating them - they were yummy.
We found that not all changes are reversible.
Science Day - The Water Cycle
Mrs. Kirby held a dish above a boiling kettle.
The steam collected in the dish.
There was a lot of water vapour in the bowl.
Then some of it condensed back into water.
We could pour the water onto the table.
The same thing happens every day in the world.
It is called The Water Cycle.
Science Day - Melting Ice
We got the ice out of the balloons.
At first we couldn't cut the ice.
Then we tried putting salt on the ice.
Then we cut the ice easily.
The ice didn't feel smooth any more, it was bumpy.
Stay and Write
Some parents came for Stay and Write.
We chose a character from a traditional tale.
Then some of us wrote a report on them.
Some of us wrote a character description.
We talked about the characters.
We showed Mums and Dads how we edit and review.
Some of us wrote about the Gingerbread Man.
Others chose The Little Red Hen or Goldilocks.
Some wrote about the fox in the Gingerbread Man.
Our topic in Term 4 is Half a World Away.
We re-told part of the story of Fantastic Mr. Fox together.
Some parents came in and we shared books.
We created a story plan. Then we made characters from our story and told our story to a friend.
Falcon class enjoyed reading Fantastic Mr. Fox. Farmer Bean came to visit and we asked him lots of questions.
A Christmas story in Santa's grotto - thanks to the Friends of Tyndale for decorating it so beautifully.
