Week Ending – 26.05.23

Dear Parent, Carer,

This week has been Science week and the children have had so much fun being scientists, where they have investigated and experimented with different types of materials.  They first had to make a prediction and record whether a particular material was waterproof or not, then they had the opportunity to test out their prediction to see if they were right.  Then they learnt about ‘absorbency’ what materials were absorbent and which ones were not. The children were given different types of everyday materials, such as cotton wool, fabric, newspaper, cubes, a ruler and some cubes to experiment with and used a pipette to test out which material was absorbent or not. Another science activity that the children enjoyed doing was first to design a boat using one type of material only that we had looked at and then they had the opportunity to test out their boat to see if it was waterproof or not.

In Maths, the children were taught how to solve worded problems and in RE the children the children looked at story from the Old Testament called God’s Promise to Abraham and they also looked at a story from the New Testament called ‘The Very Scary Storm’.

Have a wonderful Weekend!
