Ms Huntington: January 2016
It has been a very icy week in Base 1!
We filled 6 balloons with water, food colouring and some little surprises, then we took them to the freezer.
The next day we were amazed there was so much to talk about. The balloons had ripped because they were frozen and so with a little help we pulled the balloons off. We piled the ice up into an 'ice mountain' after checking how they looked and how cold they were.
We sprinkled corn flour, glitter and food colouring around the mountain and then we listened very carefully to the cracking sound as we poured salt onto the ice. It made a magical sound! We then rolled our sleeves up and touched the ice mountain, all the colours mixed together, we had so much fun!
This week we had three Mystery Readers! They all enjoyed reading to Base 1 and we loved having them.
We would love lots more Mystery Readers!!
This week we have been learning addition and our writing is getting so good.
We are excited about our walk around the village on Thursday morning, so please wrap up warm on that day.
If any Parents would like to join us on our walk then please come and tell us. We are paying a visit to the village shop, the church, the Cotton Arms, the doctors surgery and finally the park.
We are getting excited about our first visitor to school on Wednesday, he is going to talk to us about being a car mechanic.
Another busy week ahead!
