What an exciting Spring Term we have had in Badger Class!
For Topic this term we have been learning about rainforests and jungles. We have enjoyed making our own information books about the animals that live there. During our Outdoor Learning we visited Littlewood and compared our local environment to the rainforests.
We made leaf prints out of positive and negative stencils.
On the 5th of March we had World Book Day were we dressed up as characters from our favourite books. For World Book Day we got into our Behaviour for Learning Team to listen to a story and take part in a craft activity.
For Red Nose Day we dressed silly (pants on our heads, trousers back to front, t-shirts inside out and other silly ways to wear our clothes) to raise money for Comic Relief.
Commonwealth Games silver medallist and team England captain Danny Lawrence also visited DCIS to inspire us to get involved in sport; he showed us some of his gymnastic skills too!
The week beginning 16th of March was science week and the Big Write. We got to make gooey slime! Mrs Nicholls came in to show us how to make it. We had to wear gloves and safety goggles. We had a contest to find out which team had the best slime.
Badger Class went to Squirrel and Frog Class for other science experiments. In Frog Class we found out what happened to coins when they were put into a mixture of salt and vinegar. In Squirrel Class we observed what happened when raisins were dropped into fizzy water. “Some people thought it was funny, I didn’t, but it was cool.” Benjamin wrote.
We also made mini lava lamps out of oil, water, food colouring and effervescent salt. Gaby said “When we put the [effervescent] salt in, it pinged up like a firework.”
“And last but not least the fingerprinting, we tried to look at the swirls in our fingers. Science WEEK WAS FUN!” Joe wrote in his Big Writing Book.
Isla wrote “Did I have fun…YES I DID!”
