As part of our Curious Kids project on weather, the children in Foundation 4 have been exploring all about the wind. They learned about what the wind is and how it can be measured – by speed and direction. They then explored what happened when you changed the speed and direction of the wind through experimenting with blowing down straws at different objects and paint. The following week the children learnt about weather reports and decided to become weather reporters themselves.
They made some beautiful wind socks and hung them in the trees outside so they could see what speed and direction the wind was blowing in and report on it.
It´s only our first week back and it is already proving to be a great term. The children are ready and eager to learn.
Take a look at some of the things we´ve been doing…
Continuing on from our Curious Kids project this term, the children in Miss Annas´ class have been exploring their sense of taste.
Take a look at some of their reactions to the different foods…
For Curious Kids this month we’re trying to find out Who Are We? And as part of this we’re looking at our senses.
This week we investigated our sense of hearing through listening games, trying to guess who was speaking or what noise we could hear.
We then discovered how telephones worked and made our own in order to experiment with speaking and listening.
Foundation 4 & 5 have been learning all about sport as part of their ´Curious Kids´project this term.
For one of their activites, Miss Elizabeth and Miss Katie’s class made and decorated frisbees and tested them out to see who’s work best in the playground.
Take a look…
Our Curious Kids have been very busy taking care of their garden with Miss Noelle and, as you can see, they’ve done it really well!!! Take a look!
The children in Foundation 4 / 5 have discovered lots of things about patterns on their environment over the last few weeks. This video demonstrates what they have learnt!!!
We hope you enjoy it!
