Class 2 – Kapla blocks

Did your child come home today and say they spent the afternoon playing? I hope so!

This afternoon we looked and played with our new Kapla blocks that are currently on loan until the holidays. The children had a great afternoon. The team work, cooperation and communication between them all was simply amazing!

 

Ice, Ice and More Ice

After we had so much fun exploring and melting our ‘ice prisons’ yesterday, Class 1 have decided to make their own. We have begun the first few steps:

  • Step 1: Fill a cup with water about a third or half of the way.
  • Step 2: Place in the freezer.
  • Step 3: Place your creature into the cup.
  • Step 4: Add enough water to ‘trap’ your creature.
  • Step 5: Freeze again.

Class 1 soon realised that this task was more complicated than it looked, especially when the first block of ice started to melt and float upwards! Nevertheless, we are persevering with this challenge and are excited to see what the end results will be.

This afternoon, we also had a go at building with ice cubes and have chosen items to make our own autumnal ‘ice garden’. A very busy Wednesday indeed!
