During our Welly Wednesday sessions, the children are identifying signs of the change in season. We have used all of our senses to describe the changes between summer and autumn and the children really enjoy being outside to experience the changes first hand. We have transformed into weather watchers, measuring the rainfall with rain gauges made by the children and tracking the weather daily.
This term, the children are having lots of fun investivating the proporties of different materials. We have linked our science learning to this terms topic – The Great Fire of London. The children have explored the different building materials used in Tudor times and have built house from wood and straw.
During the spring term, our science focus will be animals and their habitats and food chains.
Throughout the summer term, our science focus will be plants.
