Ada Lovelace Day

Ada Lovelace was a nineteenth century scientist, writer and mathematician. To celebrate Ada Lovelace Day we carried out some of our own investigations with a colour theme. We explored what happens when we mix milk, food colouring and washing up liquid and we made gloop using cornflour and food colouring. We loved being scientists and it was great fun!

Today we had a visit from Marie, a marine biologist. She told us about her job and brought some very interesting creatures for us to look at.

An Autumn Walk!

We spotted different coloured leaves, leaves that had fallen on the ground, berries, mushrooms and ripe apples! We looked very carefully for a squirrel searching for nuts but sadly we didn't see one!

Colour continued!

We continued to work with primary colours by using food colouring and pipettes. Mrs Phillip and Mrs Trowell were so impressed with how carefully we used the pipettes.

Magical Maths!

In maths this week we have been learning to use inequality signs, more than, less then and equals. We used lots of practical equipment and worked in a group, with a partner and on our own. At home you could use some toys, coins or dried pasta to make amounts which are more and less or amounts which are equal. Your child might even be able to use the inequality signs < and >.

Colour Mixing

We listened to the story, 'Mouse Paint' and learnt about primary and secondary colours. Then we had a go at mixing our own secondary colours and printed thumbprints which are going to make into mice!

 

Ask your child if they can remember the three primary colours (red, blue and yellow) and the three secondary colours which are made by mixing the primary colours (green, orange and purple).

 

If you have some paints at home you could even have a go at mixing them with your child and making your own mice thumbprints!

Today we started to explore colour mixing using primary colours. We even did an experiment with food colouring, bicarbonate of soda and vinegar which was great fun!

We have been thinking about where we live. Today we went on a walk around our school to spot different kinds of houses. We saw terraced houses, semi-detatched houses and bungalows. Back at school we thought about the kind of house we live in.

Remember you need to be in school on time every day for a week to earn 5 Win Its!

Today we visited the Win Its shop! Some of us decided to save our Win Its, some of us decided to choose a non-uniform day and some of us chose a prize!
