Seomra alice junior class has been busy this term learning all about the signs of spring. We went on nature walks to find the signs of spring we found daffodils, blossoms and baby calves ๐ŸŒธโ˜บ๏ธWe also looked after our birds in the cold spring weather by making sure our bird feeders are well stocked up ๐Ÿฆœ

Incorporating science, fine motor and sensory play, we collected flowers, leaves, twigs and berries from our locality. We cut them up using our scissors to make โ€˜ice cakesโ€™ and used pipettes to cover our cakes in water. We explored what happens when we freeze water by putting our cakes in the freezer. Once frozen, we melted our โ€˜cakesโ€™ using warm salt water and that all important squeeze action using spray bottles.

SPHE & science : we learned how to take care of our bodies and how important healthy food is for us. In food exploration, we tried new fruits through playful experiences such โ€˜tutti fruiti games and fruit shapes cutting ๐ŸŽโ˜บ๏ธ

Incorporating our theme of space to our maths and science unit this term, we made our own rockets and investigated how force can drive our rockets. We had a rocket challenge and measured how far our rockets travelled using our feet and other items ๐Ÿš€๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

Finally, we looked at the parts of a plant and were scientists for a day as we dissected our own flowers, sorted their parts and put them back together again through art ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŽจ

A busy term indeed โ˜บ๏ธ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿฆœ๐Ÿš€
