As we delve deeper into our ice topic, Class 1 have been thinking about its importance but also about how we protect ourselves from the cold. We did some investigating this afternoon and had to explore which material would be the most suitable for a winter coat. We introduced the word ‘insulation’ and clarified that we wanted a material which would stop heat from escaping. We were very lucky to have some special Thermochromic paper and used this to test our materials. We even recorded our predictions and results. Well done Class 1, a very busy way to end the week!
This morning we welcomed eight members of the community into our school to share some of our learning, songs and penny whistle. Thank you very much to Derek, our next door neighbour, for ensuring all our visitors arrived to and from school safely.
Class 1 performed their AMAZING superhero song, followed by a song telling us the story of Superworm.
Class 2 enjoyed sharing their penny whistle tunes to the audience. They played Twinkle, Twinkle and Auld Lang Syne, as well as Culters Candy and Hot X Buns.
Well done everyone and thanks again to all our visitors.
Class 1 and 2 were inspired by a poem written by Tom Pow entitled ‘I Read’. Here is a preview of their own version. Unfortunately the full version is too long to share at the moment.
