Food Glorious Food

To start off the new term, we have been learning about Spring. We went on a Spring Hunt around the school grounds to see how many signs of spring we could find. We also used our observational skills to painting beautiful pictures of daffodils.

We have started a new topic this month too – Food Glorious Food. We started our new topic by investigating shopping bags. First, we predicted which bag we thought would hold the most shopping in and then which bag we thought would keep the shopping dry (waterproof). Next, we began to test our predications. We used the foam bricks to fill up each bag and counted to see which bag held the most – the string bag. We then poured water over each bag to see which bag would be waterproof – the hessian bag. After finishing our investigation, we talked about which bag we would want to take shopping. Some children wanted a bag that could hold lots of shopping and other children wanted a bag that is waterproof.
