Geography - Weather

We have been using the laptops to research the local weather in Sabden. We thought about why people might want to know the weather in advance. We talked about how the weather affects farming, gardening and clothing. Some children even worked with their partners, and used the iPad to film a short weather report for the week ahead!

Healthy Eating 

We have learned about food preparation techniques - how to wash, peel, chop, grate and juice fruit and vegetables. 

After that we tasted lots of different fruits.

Next we designed our healthy snack.

Finally we made it and ate it!

We wrote some fantastic fruit riddles!

During British Science week we did lots of work about plants. We looked at the tulip bulbs we had planted in Autumn to see how they had changed. We looked inside different types of fruit to see what the seeds looked like. We learned about the life cycle of plants and what happens when flowers die. We planted our own sunflower seeds to take home over Easter and we even carried out an investigation to find out what seeds need to start growing. We have been very scientific, and very busy!
