Some of us even performed our poems to the rest of the school at the end of the day! 

Science – germs investigation

 

In Science, we have been learning about important Scientists that have changed the world. Today, we explored Louis Pasteur and discovered that he was interested in germs. He carried out many experiments and taught people that germs do not appear, but are spread through the air or through touch.

 

We used glitter to explore how easily germs can spread and were shocked with how far the glitter spread around the classroom. We washed our hands without soap and discovered that most of the germs were still on our hands!

We were able to find out that our new Topic is all about World War Two and we are all really excited to learn all about this historical event!

We worked in small groups to role play the journey we might take on the magic carpet and what we might see and do whilst we're there. Next we created our own wordless books and now we are currently writing an adventure about a lost item.
