On Tuesday the children received an email from Michel with a video attached. They made predictions about what the video might be about before seeing it. Some children guessed correctly when they said they thought it might be a dinosaur. Once outside a group of children decided to set a trap to try and catch the dinosaur if he came back.
Inside children learnt how to manipulate and mold the clay into a ball before flattening. Children then inserted a mini dinosaur into the clay to make a fossil.
In Red class the caterpillars have now made their chrysalis. We are excited to see them change and develop over the next week. In Ruby class the caterpillars have not yet made their chrysalis so we have taken the opportunity to been explore similarities and differences.
The stick insect eggs we had delivered have also hatched! We now have five little stick insects to look after as a class.
Friday was very exciting! We spent the morning outside in the lovely sunshine but then in the afternoon there was a hail storm. We all went outside under the cover, to listen and watch the hail as it fell. Once the storm had calmed down, some children collected the hail so that we could look at it closer inside. Some of the hail was 1cm big.
