Chinese New Year! 31st January 2017
As you may know our topic this term is ‘Let’s Go to China!’ …
In literacy we have been learning the story of the Chinese Zodiac and this week we will begin to plan and write our own versions of the story. This afternoon we decided we wanted to find out a bit more about how the Chinese celebrate new year.
For half the afternoon the children made their own chinese lanterns through following specific instructions. They all did a superb job!
The other half of the afternoon was chinese food tasting. Lots of them tried something they had never had before and I was very proud of them all for having a go.
- egg noodles
- soy sauce
- vegetable spring rolls
- prawn crackers
Which will mould the fastest? 27th January 2017
This term in science we have been looking at famous scientists , discoveries and inventions …
This week we learnt about the importance of hygiene to humans by investigating Louis Pasteur’s work on germs. We decided to set up an investigation into germs of our very own.
We wanted to know which piece of bread will start to mould the fastest?
First we all touched a slice of bread with our unwashed hands and placed it in a fridge bag, then we repeated the same after washing our hands thoroughly, finally we placed an untouched piece of bread into a fridge bag. Over the next week we are going to observe what the difference is between each slice of bread. We made a prediction as a class that we think the slice that was touched with our dirty hands will start to go green/blue and mould the fastest!
Watch this space to find out our results!

Fire Safety Talk 12th January 2017
Today we were lucky enough to have a visit from the Potters Bar Fire Service …
They brought along their fire engine and very kindly explain to us what all the different bits and bobs were used for. We even have to chance to go inside the fire engine and ask lots of interesting questions!
They gave us lots of important information about what to do in the case of an emergency and even set the children a little bit of homework.
- Check they have a smoke detector at home
- Learn their address – in case they ever have to call 999 in an emergency
