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!
