Which of your cars will travel the furthest? Why not have a go at recording your answers on a simple table. Does it make any difference if you change the height of the tube or the surface that the cars are travelling on?
A fun activity for these sunny days! Compare the weight of objects around the garden. Which are heavier, lighter or the same?
Run Jack! Read the story of, 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. Can you help Jack escape from the giant? Use materials from around your house to build a parachute for Jack.
I'll huff and I'll puff!!!! Read the story of, 'The Three Little Pigs'. Now have a go at building their houses from materials in the garden. Can you retell the story to someone else?
This term our topic is 'Plants and Fairytales'. Read the story of the 'Billy Goats Gruff'. Can you build a bridge from the goats to get safely to the other side? You could use Lego, knex or any recyclable materials!
Have fun making a tin foil boat. Can you make it float? Now add coins. P1 - 1p and 2p coins. P2 - 1p, 2p, 5p and 10p coins. How much money will your boat hold?
Why not have a go at growing a grass head? Carefully plant the seeds, remember to water them and place your pot in a sunny spot. Watch the grass grow. It might even need a little trim with your scissors!
Have a go at making a beautiful mosaic flower. 1. Print flower outline. 2. Cut up lots of little colourful mosaic squares. 3. Carefully stick on each mosaic tile. This activity helps us develop our fine motor skills as we learn and identify the parts of a flower.
Learning can be fun in the sun! Give some of these activities a try.

It has been lovely seeing lots of little busy bees. Keep up the great work everyone!
It's snowing! When we arrived at school it was snowing. Mrs Totten built a tiny snowman and brought it into our classroom. We watched it to see what would happened. Each hour we measured it using cubes and then carefully recorded the answer. It got smaller and smaller and then melted away!
In class, we have been learning about sea turtles. Today Jade brought in her tortoise for us to see. It looks very similiar to a sea turtle but a lot smaller and lives on land. Thank you, Jade!
Our new topic is, 'Under the Sea'. We have been reading, The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch. Today we received a letter from Mrs Grinling. She wanted us to build a zipline that would carry lunch to Mr Grinling. We had to work as a team to design and build a zipline. We tested them to see if a basket would travel from the little house on the cliffs to the lighthouse.
It's our first week!
We have been reading, 'The Little Red Hen'. We made some yummy bread. Thank you to Mrs Beattie for brinning Hetty the Hen into school for us to see!
Love is in the air! We had so much fun thinking about Valentine's Day! First, we did an experiment to see how a love heart sweet would dissolve in hot water, cold water, vinegar and baking soda. Then we tried to stack as many love hearts as possible. We estimated how many we thought we could stack and then counted our love heart tower. After that, we put some Valentine's objects in water to see which would float and which would sink! Finally, we found out the weight of different sea creatures using plastic hearts. Phew!!!! We really are busy bees in P2!!!!
It's cold outside! We made some hot chocolate to help warm us up. We thought of some adjectives to describe the taste and smell of it. Finally, we completed a graph that showed our favourite topping!
We have been learning about, 'Houses and Homes'. Today we read the story of The Three Little Pigs. We had to work together as a team to design and build a house for the pigs. The big bad wolf tried to blow them down!
Merry Christmas everyone! We have been thinking about instructional writing. We decorated our Christmas tree and then we wrote about how we did it! We think it look fabulous!
